Why don't you consider it from the players perspective. They were a team that went undefeated in regular season reguardless of they did or didn't play. They heard from everyone that they didn't belong in the super 8. They beat a much bigger and faster CM in a thrilling play in game. Then to cap it all off they took what everyone considers to be the best team in the state to the limit in a GREAT series. BC High definitely was deeper and more talented but Walpole gave them everything they could handle. It's not always about the kids getting a scholarship and going D1, sometimes it's about the ride and the memories created. Those kids made history and should be applauded for their accomplishments.
I'm not a Walpole fan at all. I think the coach is a total monkey. Saying that congrats to the boys. Goalie save their hide every single game. Mobile has one line that belongs and no depth after that. Fact. They hung on as long as they could but in the end it's on the coach for not for affording them the opportunity to play real competition during the year. This ultimately bit them in the end. They were not experienced against good teams and the speed and size was an eye-opener for them. Not fair to ask boys to get up for competition above them three or four games in a row when not used to playing that caliber. What I'm saying is the experience throughout the regular season would've helped them. It certainly would not of hurt their ranking it would've helped. Coach is a tool and should be fired for being someone who runs from competition in the regular season. Congrats again to the boys.
This makes absolutely no sense when you take the marshfield/Malden catholic series into consideration. Marshfield was run off the ice in both games but they played tough competition all season. Walpole took BC High to the limit without playing anyone
Yup. Rumor has it he's going to top junior program next year as the starting goalie.
