The Redmen senior is hoping to use a recent loss to Wilmington as motivation for the upcoming state tournament.
Derek Petti blasted home a critical goal for the Tewksbury boys hockey team on Wednesday night against Wilmington. It wasn’t, however, a night the Redmen captain will be highlighting on his impressive hockey resume. The senior is focused on the bigger picture. While the Redmen lost to the Wildcats, 3-2, in the annual addition of the rivalry, Petti played well as has become the norm for Tewksbury. “I didn’t want anything more than to win that game,” said Petti. “We’re hoping to see them again. Two years ago we lost to Wilmington and things ended up turning out pretty well.” That year the Wildcats blew out Tewksbury before the Redmen went on to a dramatic state title win. While Petti has compiled plenty of individual and team accolades …

Winthrop eliminates Tewksbury High Hockey team from MIAA state tournament, 4-0.
Unfortunately for the Tewksbury High hockey team, the 2011-2012 season ended just the way it started. On a down note. The defending Division 2 State Champion Redmen got stung early and never recovered Tuesday night, suffering a 4-0 loss to Winthrop High in their opening round MIAA state tournament game at the Stoneham Arena. Winthrop forward Matt Todisco scored what proved to be the game-winning goal just 1:09 into the first period, effectively knocking the young TMHS team right off its game plan, and things never got better after that. Two second period goals put the game out of reach and a fourth goal in the third period added insult to injury as Tewksbury's dreams of making another strong post-season run were ruined before the Redmen …
