Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

I think Falmouth should learn a few things about putting on a tournament. You set-up the schedule so you have an easy opponent in the first round and a beatable opponent so you make it to the finals. Scheduling BCH in the first round and losing 10-0 is no way to host a tournament.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

You need to look a little closer, the other seven teams in the tournament are pretty strong, so there are no weak opponents. It is a credit to Falmouth that they can get all these top teams together so close to when they need to be peaking for the State Tourney.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

I agree its a great tourney and they do a good job bringing in good teams but the point is maybe they're just a bit too good. And that C.C. to publics gap is wider than it has been in decades and getting wider.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

BCH / Arington Catholic final. Good games, many ties.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

AC / Hingham shoot-out went seven skaters deep...all for the honor of getting rolled by BCH.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

Hingham might not have the top-end players they had last year but they can go pretty much four lines up front. The skill up front that left to BA and their top D pairing they lost to graduation hasn't been replaced. Deeper but not better but having a goalie sure helps.

Re: Buddy Ferreira Classic / finals?

8-0 BCH over AC... Super 8 ready it looks like for BCH.
