Re: Congrats Walpole

The state tournament is hard for many programs to advance through and maybe that isn't the accurate measure. You have teams that lose in the play-in round come down, you have regionally recruited catholic teams, you have D-I independent powerhouses that play a C.C. schedule, you just bigger and better teams you're facing. But the guys point has always been, why not play better competition throughout the season?

Re: Congrats Walpole

Same size town and hang him, same number of kids that show up for tryouts as Hingham, big difference in skill. Why? Development. Clearly. Obviously not developing their junior high and freshman players. Afraid to play good teams. It's a shame. Coach should be fired.

Re: Congrats Walpole

Walpole's goalie is very good. I could see him stealing a game against a dramatically better team.

Thanks dad.
How'd that work out for him last season?

Re: Congrats Walpole

Actually, from Franklin, but their goalie is good enough to have a game where he stands on his head and they beat a better team. They would get hammered in the S8 but I wouldn't be shocked if they win a play in game

Re: Congrats Walpole

Play in game? First the selection committee will look at their 'quality wins' and let's see....they have a tie against Framingham and a game this week against Braintree. Other than that there really isn't a game they can point to because they don't play anyone. The schedule says "we're D-I tourney material at best' and you're talking Super 8. A play-in game they would get run out of the building.

Re: Congrats Walpole

Just 'stay in your lane' and gun for the D-I. That's why you play a cupcake schedule. Get a win or two against some lower seed and get killed by a higher seed and everyone is happy.

What happened to them last year?
And they had a better overall team.
But, I agree. Their undefeated season will force the slobs at MIAA to give thema play-in game, which they will lose. Then they will drop into D1 tourney, and make it through the first round or two, then lose again.

From Franklin? Well good for you.
Although that does give you the right to make this comment, seeing as the kid you had last year threw that team on his back. Back to reality this season though.

Re: Congrats Walpole

What year did your kid get cut from the team? Or was your kid not invited to the party?

Kids get cut from Walpole?
Wow........

Re: Congrats Walpole

I must say I went to the Walpole Braintree game last night and now can see how Walpole is having such a great season. Sure the Bay State isn't as strong at the top as it was last year but this team looks pretty good. Not sure if they are State champions good since their are lots of good teams but they'll compete with most.

Don't sleep on Wellesley.

Lol...I did too and saw 2 mediocre teams with 1 decent goalie. They are out of the tourney by round 3 at the latest.

Re: Congrats Walpole

Wow all the negativity. Are you this grumpy everyday about everything? Like when it's 80 in the summer you're like what the heck why isn't it 85. Gotta find some positives in your life and enjoy it. Bashing 15-18 year kids all day isn't the way to live.

Re: Congrats Walpole

What's up with the coach/A.D. pulling down the Walpole partying posts? Won't make it far if he can't brush this stuff under the rug.

I'd be interested in a link....

Re: Congrats Walpole

I think your level of what is acceptable here is - would you be happy to see some slanderous things (there haven't been any convictions, right?) posted here about your son's drinking or drug use? Think about it.

Re: Congrats Walpole

They are in big trouble next year. Rink/Express owner forcing them out and starting u18/16 teams that will use late afternoon ice. Enjoy those 5am practices.

Re: Congrats Walpole

Huge win against Norwood JV last night. Most overrated team in the state. Play someone then talk.
