ARHS Boys Hockey going for state title

Expect to see a lot of THawks at TD Garden this Sunday. ARHS Boys Ice Hockey continues making history this week. Last night, they earned their spot in the state finals.

On Monday night, the Boys battled their way to their first Central Division 3 title for the first time in the program’s history.

On Thursday night, they faced Westfield in the state semi-finals, a school with three past state titles, the most recent in 2013. But the THawks continued their winning streak. And unlike the previous two contests decided in shootouts, they bested their rivals 6-2.

In another milestone, the team celebrated Captain Alex DiPadua’s 100th scored point during the game.

This Sunday afternoon at 1:00 pm, the Boys will face the Hanover Indians. The Telegram posts:

Hanover last played in a state championship game two years ago and won a state title in 2007. It is the fifth trip to a state final game for the Indians.

That’s not likely to dampen THawk Nation’s fan fever.

If you’re looking to cheer the boys on, you can find ticket information here. For less than $13 per seat (including fees), fans can root for Gonk Hockey, and even take in 5 other high school face-offs that day.
