On the tourney trail

Posted by Craig Larson, Globe Staff March 12, 2007 02:25 PM


Four outstanding local state tournament matchups slated for Monday night. The Needham and Lincoln-Sudbury girls' basketball teams hit the parquet floor at the Garden for EMass. finals while the Framingham (South) and Weston (North) boys' hockey teams shoot for sectional crowns:

Girls' Basketball:
EMass Division 2 final
Lincoln-Sudbury vs. Bishop Feehan (Garden, 6 p.m.):
* The Warriors (22-2) conquered top-seeded Melrose in Saturday's North final and now take on a Feehan squad that features quickness. Junior guard Sarah Wetmore was immense Saturday with a career-high 32 points. Can Feehan contend with 6-5 senior center Carolyn Swords?

EMass Division 1 final:
Needham vs. Central Catholic (Garden, 7:45 p.m.)
* Seniors Colleen Hart and Cerie Mosgrove and the rest of the undefeated Rockets (22-0) have been unstoppable thus far. Beating Framingam for the third time in Saturday's South final was no easy task.

Boys' Hockey:
EMass Division 3 North final
Weston vs. Savio Prep (Chelmsford Forum, 7:10 p.m.)
* The Wildcats (19-1-2) have put together a sensational run in their second year as a varsity program, but sentiment may be riding with a Savio Prep is playing every game like its its last -- which very well could the truth. Andrew Elman and Alex Marlow have starred for Weston in the tourney. Joe Dell'Erario has been solid in net.

EMass Divsion 1 South final:
Framingam vs. Duxbury (Gallo Rink, Bourne, 7 p.m.)
* Framingham pulled out a thrilling 3-2 win over Barnstable around midnight on Saturday night. Now the 10th-seeded Flyers (16-9) head south again, trying to claim the sectional crown with a victory over a rock-solid Duxbury squad. Junior defenseman Chris Gorotwitz leads the Framingham attack, but the Flyers will need a big night from goalie Mike Pearless. The two squads scrimmaged in the preseason.
