With a rivalry game on the horizon, the Tewksbury High School boys hockey team is beginning to click on all cylinders.

The Redmen have just three regular season games left, and they'll close out that stretch with a home tilt against border rival Wilmington, which has won two straight state championships.

Tewksbury currently boasts a record of 11-2-2 overall, with a mark of 6-2-1 in Merrimack Valley/Dual County play. That is good for second place, just behind first place Lincoln-Sudbury's record of 9-1-2.

Lincoln-Sudbury faces Methuen on Monday night. LS has already clinched a share of the league title, and would win it outright with a win over Methuen.

After a 3-1 loss to North Andover in the second game of the season, the Redmen didn't suffer a loss again until January 15 against Lincoln-Sudbury, also by a 3-1 margin.

Since that time, the team has gone on a 4-0-1 stretch that includes Saturday's 6-0 thumping of Concord-Carlisle.

Tewksbury plays Boston Latin at Northeastern University on Wednesday at 8 p.m., followed by a game on Monday, Feb. 17, at home against Methuen.

Following those two contests, the locals take on Wilmington on Friday, Feb. 21, to close out the year with the annual contest. The Wildcats have had the best of the Redmen in recent years, a trend Tewksbury hopes to reverse this season.

Editor's Note: This story was corrected to indicate that Lincoln-Sudbury currently sits in first place, not Tewksbury.
