As soon as the puck hits the floor with a thud, the players gain energy. Their strides are filled with purpose and the wind collides with their faces, as they make their way towards Everett’s goalie, in hopes of scoring the first point of the game.  

The boys varsity hockey team lost against Everett High School with a score of 1-7 at Boston University’s Walter Brown Arena on Saturday, Feb. 6. This officially eliminated them from the playoffs. However, their perseverance as a team did not falter at any point in the game.

Co-interim head coach Sean Guilfoy said he greatly admired the work of the players.

“They played for each other, for the guy to their left and their right,” Guilfoy said. “They played for pride. They didn’t put their heads down. They just worked hard.”

The game started off with Everett dominating the puck, but Brookline quickly gained control. However, Everett managed to get a puck past Brookline goalie sophomore Felix Madsen-Hardy with 7:34 minutes left in the period.

In the second period, Brookline continued to work together, but Everett scored three more goals. Towards the end of the period, sophomore Ryan Leung successfully scored a goal, exciting his team and the crowd.

The last part of the game started off with much more aggression, as Brookline advanced towards the goal. Despite dealing with struggles and an injured player, Brookline managed to make strategic passes from teammate to teammate that fueled the energy in their performance. Unfortunately, they were unable to score another goal.

Head coach Greg Spiers praised Leung’s performance.

“I think notable events were Ryan Leung, who scored his first varsity goal today,” Spiers said. “He went end to end, which was a big accomplishment.”

Coach Guilfoy also noted strengths in his team that he saw.

“(Sophomore) Jared Tow is going to be a hundred pounds soaking wet and he’s not afraid to throw his body at the biggest player on the ice,” Guilfoy said. “You got to love a player who is willing to do that for his teammates.”
