The Southern Gazette - - EDITORIAL - BY COLIN FAR­RELL MI­NOR HOCKEY

The Marys­town Cen­tral High School Clip­pers played to a 6-0 win over the Monar­chs from Mo­bile Cen­tral High.

Ju­nior Far­rell, coach of the Marys­town hockey team said the team played strong all week­end.

“We played very strong along the boards,” he said. “(We) passed the puck well, kept pres- sure in their end un­til we ended up scor­ing goals on power plays.”

Far­rell noted the team was to be com­mended for their penalty-killing ef­forts.

“We shut the other guys down re­ally well…in our own end,” he said.

Play be­came more phys­i­cal as tem­pers started to flare in the fi­nal min­utes of the game.

“The last pe­riod got a bit phys­i­cal do to the score be­ing a lit­tle high, and the other team was be­com­ing a bit more phys­i­cal be­cause of it,” Far­rell said. “But our team kept cooler heads and stayed away from the un­nec­es­sary rough­ness af­ter the penal­ties. I think they kept good com­po­sure and showed great class when it came to the end of the game.”

Michael Brock­erville, cen­ter, who scored the team’s sixth goal with just 11 sec­onds re­main­ing, said he was pleased with his team’s per­for­mance.

“We played good as a team, got pucks deep, lots of shots on net and we con­verted on our chances,” he said.

Pa­trick Far­rell, who also plays cen­ter, said it was a great week­end of hockey.

“It was nice to see the teams come out and have a tour­na­ment here,” he said. “Even though we had to give some play­ers to the other teams.”

In Satur­day’s game against Pla­cen­tia, Matthew Sta­ple­ton, Ed­ward Far­rell, Jonathon Inkpen and James Han­ra­han of MCHS played with the Pla­cen­tia when the team were short on play­ers.

“They never had enough (play­ers) to ice the team,” ex­plained Far­rell. “So the by’s were good enough to go and play with them.”
