Girls Hockey Team One Win From Semifinal Berth
The Tewksbury-Metheun girls hockey team is the final squad remaining with Tewksbury High School students in the postseason.
And then there was one.
The final Tewksbury team remaining in the postseason skates on Monday night, hoping to continue what's been a surprising run deep into the Division 2 bracket.
The Methuen-Tewksbury girls hockey team thumped Norwell, 10-3, in the preliminary round, cruised past Canton, 7-3, in the first round, and next faces off against Gardner in the quarterfinals.
Gardner opened with a preliminary round bye before it edged Burlington, 2-1, in a shootout.
Monday's quarterfinal round is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. inside Watertown's Ryan Rink. The winner will take on either top-seeded Duxbury or No. 8 Archbishop Williams in the Division 2 semifinal round.
The Methuen-Tewksbury playoff run has been an impressive one, especially given the team's No. 20 seed.
