Last night, the co-op Algonquin-Hudson Girls Hockey team scored a big win in their state tournament. Southborough Wicked Local writes:

After a three-year absence, the Algonquin girls hockey team made its return to postseason play on Wednesday night at the New England Sports Center.

The 13th-seeded Tomahawks hosted No. 20 Medfield in a Division 2 preliminary round matchup, and thanks to a three-goal third period managed to pull away with a 4-0 victory.

Algonquin (12-9) will next head to Milton to face the fourth-seeded Wildcats on Saturday evening at 5 p.m. in a first-round matchup. Medfield’s season ends at 7-8-6. (read more)

The previous night, 7th seed Gonk Boys Basketball played in its First Round of sectionals. They bested lower seed Acton-Boxborough 73-53. Friday night at 7:00 pm, the Boys will take on Wachusett’s 2nd seed team in the Quarter Finals.

On Tuesday I “posted” a sports update that somehow never came up on the blog. So, apologies for not letting readers know that ARHS Girls Basketball headed to sectional Quarter Finals yesterday.

On Monday night, the Girls overcame upperseed Leominster in the Central Division I sectionals. The 10th seed team’s triumph didn’t come easy. They won 63-61 in double overtime.

Sadly, their journey ended last night. The team was dominated by 2nd seed Westford Academy 75-31.

In Monday’s post, I failed to share news of our other high school’s big basketball triumph last week. (That was also in Tuesday’s missing post.) The Community Advocate wrote:

The Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School boys’ basketball team defeated Worcester Technical High School by a score of 68-44 Feb. 23 to win the State Vocational Tournament Championship. (read more)

The Aztecs were 2nd seed going into their Division 4 sectional playoffs last night. They beat 15th seed Millis in the First Round, 73-65 . Tomorrow night, they’ll hold court against 10th seed Abbey Kelley at 7:00 pm. You can follow their bracket here.

As I previously posted, a few ARHS athletes qualified to compete in New England championships this weekend. For a reminder on those details, click here.

I had also shared that, ARHS Boys Hockey ranked second seed for their sectional tournament and earned a BYE on the Quarter Finals. Details are now in on their Monday night Semi Finals. They’ll be playing Auburn at the Wallace Civic Center at 5:00 pm.
