Pike school team is middle school with kids 6-8 grade
Pike school team is 6-9th grade
SJP 7th grade team plays Pikes 6-9th grade team and always smokes them. AP Freshman beating them is nothing to brag about
Sorry guys, I thought people knew that APs freshman team is 6-8th graders, JV is 8th & 9th graders and varsity is last years JV team. The “pipeline” has just shifted from McAdams/Pap’s warriors to RG/Mclean’s Islanders …. It’s the same grift, just different perpetrators.
And now playing better teams so that does not bode well for the pipeline.
Funny “The pipeline” was also the name of my middle school band. (Back when AP was just boys)
I've worried about this for a while since the announcement came out -- they don't have the horses for the race and moving to the hockey academy model is going to cause a ****-storm in the school, it already didn't go over well that's why they didn't implement it....
Anyone left who is worth a dam will be hitting the door this year. They probably wish they left last year when the team had a pretty good showing in the MIAA probably would have given them more options. My guess is they will be worse next year and then the future will tell us where they go.
Makes you wonder they they are going to be able to recruit if they can’t keep the kids they already have.
They have lost the last 7 games with their goalie getting tossed for fighting in the Kent hill game. But at least they have Thayer on the schedule that should go well.
True but the back up goalie filled in admirable and his flow was breathtaking. Just saying
Looking to turn things around. AP has lost their last 9 games hopefully they can get it going soon
Any word on incoming players for next year?
Nobody coming in everyone is leaving. They have lost the last 11 games in a row would you spend 30k for a school with no rink and bad hockey
why do u care
they will have there own rink to play at next year. a lot of jealous people mind your own business
What are they getting rid of the football field to build a ice rink the place is land locked.
Nope going to place far better toto I will give u a hint the bruins use to practice there dumb dumb
If the rink isn't on campus its not a selling point.
Are there any good hotels near this lovely rink for the student housing or maybe just bring in some portable units for the Reading campus.
You mean the same rink that's owned by "Gallant Memorial Arena, LLC" (i.e. Richard Gallant), who also owns the "Islanders Hockey Club, Inc."? Hmmmm...so much for that academy model that Patrick Driscoll at AP says isn't happening...Doesn't take too much to connect the dots. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck....
light dawns on marble head. no **** Sherlock
Losing streak is over
Shocker kids won without the freak behind the bench. Give them all the credit, PD does nothing but hire the bus driver. Coaches care only about how much money they can make off you. JM will not talk to the team or your bender. Stay away from these guys. Shame on AP for hiring them. #don'ttrustanythingtheysay
What’s the background on why JM left MC? Apparently PD was the athletic director at MC when JM left. Now that PD is at AP he hires JM? What caused him to leave?
It was a big win against a team below AP with 3 wins. Keep it rolling boys.
A win is a win. More to come next year.
