Division 2 North First round Watertown 3, Tewksbury 2 Those who know hockey well will tell you that goaltending can be the great equalizer, especially in a single-elimination tournament. The Tewksbury High boys hockey team dominated play in their Division 2 North Tournament game against Watertown, Tuesday night in Stoneham. But despite a whopping 47-16 edge in shots on goal, the Redmen were eliminated, 3-2.

Tewksbury failed to upset Reading for the second consecutive year in the Division 2 Semifinal game.
In a rematch of last year’s Eastern Mass. Division 2 Semifinal, the Reading High Rockets got their revenge over Tewksbury with a 42-6 dismantling of the Redmen at Reading High last night. “We definitely had revenge on our mind this year and we were clicking on all cylinders,” said Reading quarterback Drew Belcher, whose incredible night led the Rockets to improve to 12-0 on the season. Belcher completed nine passes for 126 yards and a touchdown, and rushed nine times for 105 yards and four touchdowns. “We worked all offseason to come back and make it to this game,” said receiver Ryan Maney. “They pretty much beat our butt last year,” said the Gronk-like pass catcher who hauled in five catches for 87 yards and had a 61-yard rushing …

Redmen are eliminated in the first round of the MIAA Division 1 North Sectional tournament.
The problem with qualifying for MIAA post season play is that if you run into a team with a hot hand and lose a match, it's one-and-done and your season is over. Such was the case for the Tewksbury High girls volleyball team Tuesday night as the Redmen bumped up against a rock solid North Andover team in the first round of the state tournament, and saw the most successful season in the history of Tewksbury High volleyball come to an abrupt end. "I think we played as well as we could have," said TMHS coach Jim Ray after his team was eliminated, 3-1, by the Scarlet Knights. "North Andover came in here (seeded) No. 5 and we were No. 4, and you couldn't have asked for a better pairing for a game like this." It was certainly a match worth the …

TMHS volleyball team will return to MIAA tournament for the second straight year.
It may not have been his team's most electrifying performance of the season, but Tewksbury High volleyball coach Jim Ray was more than satisfied with his team's 3-0 win at Wilmington Wednesday night, especially considering that the victory earned the Redmen a spot in the MIAA state volleyball tournament for the second straight year. "It wasn't the prettiest match, but we'll take it," said Ray after his team secured its ninth win of the season, guaranteeing the team a tournament spot based on winning at least 50 percent of its 18 games. "We definitely played to their level and we had to dig ourselves out of a couple holes, but we're in the state tournament again, so we'll take it." Tewksbury won all three sets by identical 25-20 scores. …
