SOUTH DENNIS – The momentum is growing with the addition of each victory. The buzz around the Nauset boys hockey team is tough to ignore. The Warriors added another win to their pile Monday night when they skated to a 3-0 victory over the Dennis-Yarmouth/Cape Cod Academy/Cape Cod Tech co-op team in the fourth edition of the Codfish Cup at Tony Kent Arena. Senior Cooper Guiliano and juniors Cooper McIntire a...

SOUTH DENNIS – The spectators that filled the stands at Tony Kent Arena began to let their displeasure and disapproval be heard moments after the buzzer sounded at the end of overtime. It had been a long hockey-filled day at the arena, and it was clear the crowd wasn’t in favor of the night’s grand finale ending in a tie. Despite the audible groans and boos that came down as the Cape Cod Furies and Dennis-Yarm...

SOUTH DENNIS – There are only a handful of “sure things” that high school athletes experience during their careers. In all likelihood, one of those things will be that the team will go through some changes between seasons. There is almost always a group of seniors who graduate and leave the team, and every so often a coaching change will take place and provide the players with a new leader to follow. Cape C...

SOUTH DENNIS – It’s hard for athletes from two schools to come together to build a rapport under the umbrella of a co-op team. It’s even harder when the team finds itself shorthanded for lengthy stretches of play. Penalties proved costly for the Mashpee-Monomoy boys co-op hockey team Thursday afternoon, as Martha’s Vineyard spoiled its home opener at Tony Kent Arena after skating to a 5-1 victory over the Mona...

ORLEANS – Cape Cod’s hockey landscape just gained a lot more credibility. And Lower Cape hockey players don’t have to look too far to see it. The Cape Cod Furies co-op hockey team began a new era last week when the team began its preseason practices at the Charles Moore Arena in Orleans. Not only are the Furies beginning a new season, they are doing so with new leadership: Connor Brickley has taken over for Ad...

Bust out your ice skates, roll out some basketballs and get ready to make a splash, because winter high school sports are back on the Lower Cape. Local high school teams were allowed to open their winter sports tryouts and practices Monday afternoon, as teams reconvened for the first time since February. There will be one glaring difference between fall and winter sports, however: athletes and coaches will ...

ORLEANS – The Cape Cod Tech-Cape Cod Academy co-op boys hockey team nearly went extinct. After not fielding a team during the 2019-20 season due to a lack of players, the two schools, bonded by their shared mascot, the Crusaders, have returned to the ice during the Fall II season. “I just feel lucky we’re able to have a season this year and lucky to get it in during the March-April window,” said Cape Tech-C...

By: Brad Joyal

FALMOUTH – The Nauset Regional High School girls basketball team had two goals for this season: win every game and finish the season with a Cape and Islands League Atlantic Tournament title. In the end, Falmouth got in the way of both goals. The second-seeded Warriors’ season ended in heartbreaking fashion, as they fell to the top-seeded Clippers 49-45 in the Cape and Islands Atlantic Tournament championshi...

ORLEANS – Although hundreds of students are enrolled at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School, Anna Bartolomey holds the distinction of being the school’s only student-athlete. Well, for this season anyway. Cape Tech opted out of interscholastic sports for both the fall and winter seasons due to upticks in COVID-19 cases, however, Bartolomey, a junior at the school, was given permission to compete for the...

SOUTH DENNIS — It was only a matter of time before the Nauset Regional High School boys hockey team received a little puck luck. It finally came last week. After playing in five games without a win, the Warriors finally got in the win column on Feb. 3 when they celebrated Senior Night with a 4-3 victory over Barnstable at Charles Moore Arena.  Three days later, Nauset notched its first winning streak of the...

Monarchs Drop First Two Games Despite Quick Starts

By: Brad Joyal

SOUTH DENNIS – If high school hockey games were sudden-death and victories were awarded to the first team that scored, the Monarchs would be well on their way to posting a successful season. The co-op hockey team featuring boys from Mashpee and Monomoy managed to find the back of the net before its opponents in each of its first two games, though fast starts weren’t enough for the Monarchs to earn victories ag...

Winter Sports Are A Go, With Modifications

By: Kat Szmit

HARWICH – The modifications are many, but not enough to stop winter sports from happening, which comes as great news to student-athletes across the state and at the local level who are looking forward to starting their seasons on Dec. 14. In a roughly two-hour meeting on Nov. 20, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) held discussions and votes on the guidelines set forth by the Executiv...

HYANNIS – The Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs started their season with a tie and finished in the same way in their final game of the 2019-2020 season on Feb. 20, playing to a 1-1 tie with East Bridgewater. A smattering of fans came to check out the morning contest and weren't disappointed as the Monarchs made it clear from the first puck drop that they were making the most of their last game. After snagging the open...

ORLEANS – The energy on the home team bench was palpable on Feb. 8. Not only was it Senior Night for the Cape Cod Furies, but the Nauset/Monomoy/Cape Tech squad had come to win. Three periods and five goals later, they'd given their seniors something to celebrate. “I was excited. Once we put one in, we got rolling,” Furies head coach Addie Weeks said of the 5-0 game. “We haven't been been able to produce in th...

Monarchs Fall To Lions In Boys Ice Hockey Action

By: Kat Szmit

HYANNIS – The Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs scored first in their Feb. 1 game against the St. John Paul II Lions, but a punishing third period meant another tough loss for the struggling home team. The Monarchs fell 7-1 on Friday night, with their lone goal coming at 10:25 when Monomoy's Lucas Tambolleo found an opening and slapped the puck through, capitalizing on an assist from teammate Charlie Southworth. Tha...

ORLEANS – Between interrupted breakaways and pucks that simply refused to slide into the net, the annual Codfish Cup between the Monomoy/Nauset/Cape Tech Furies and the D-Y Dolphins just didn't go the Furies' way. No doubt given the level of intensity the home team Furies brought to the ice at the Charles Moore Arena, the 2-0 loss carried a bit more of a sting, as did several questionable calls by on-ice offic...
