Scituate Hockey Team Takes on Watertown


The Sailors face off against Watertown this upcoming Sunday night at Gallo Ice Arena. After a great win over Dighton- Rehoboth/Seekonk and to top it off Essex Tech last night. After coming strong and winning with a final score of 4-2, Scituate was able to sail into the semi-finals. Goals from Timmy Lochiatto and Dylan Richmond, Jim Sulivan, and Teagen Pratt paved the way to victory. Watertown defeated the Nauset Warriors last night to punch their ticket to the Final Four.

With tensions high and adrenaline pumping, we wanted to get into the minds of our beloved players and devoted fans. Captain Teagen Pratt said that they’ll need “the biggest crowds of the season” from here on out. The stakes get higher and higher each game, and the teams will continue to get better as well. Pratt says that the most important part of their game plan is to keep the puck “in a tight box” on defense and “let the sponge suck in the puck.” The “sponge” is a reference to the Sailors’ stellar defense that has supported Thomas McMellen in the net all year. This defense is led by senior captain Matt Seghezzi.

Senior James McLean, Westfield State commit, had some thoughts to share about the upcoming game, “I’m feelin’ good. It should be a blowout.  I’m totally stoked to be cheering on my fellow Sailors!” 

When asked how the team plans to learn from their mistakes, senior Daniel Brown explained, “​​If we struggle with discipline and penalties, we’re gonna make sure to keep a strong, firm, tight defense.” 

Sophomore Jake Linnell is ready to go stupid in the stands saying, “I say we’re taking it to ’em hard. It’ll be a no-doubter like the last game. We’ll be ready to play and they’re not. Def an easy one”

SHS principal Dr. Lisa Maguire was extremely excited and confident in the team. Saying she knows “how much effort they’ve put into the season,” she believes their work will pay off. The sailors are hoping for a chance to win the State Championship for the first time in 16 years.

The Sailor’s #1 fan, senior Jesse Rees, is pumped for the game: “Both good teams are both honorable and respectable. This game is going to be tight, real tight.”
