Recap: Governor's Academy 6, Nobles 4

May, 15, 2013
5/15/13
1:54
AM ET
BYFIELD, Mass. – Governor’s Academy lost their first game of the season on Saturday to a St. Sebastian’s team who has been playing its best lacrosse in the second half of the season.

Gov’s midfielder Tate Jozokos knew that they needed to come out strong on Tuesday against fellow top ISL opponent, Noble and Greenough.

“We were down coming off that big loss but with the one practice he had in between we knew that it was going to make us better in the long run,” Jozokos said after the game.

In a defensively charged game, it was Governor’s Academy (12-1, 11-1 in ISL) who would come out on top as they held Nobles (11-4, 9-3 in ISL) to a season-low four goals to earn a 6-4 victory and remain tied at the top of the ISL with Belmont Hill.

“This was a big game and an important game for both teams,” Gov’s head coach Peter Bidstrup said. “We knew we were facing an excellent team today.”

Nobles would jump out to an early 1-0 lead as star middie Morgan Cheek scored in transition at the 7:29 mark in the first quarter.

Gov’s would net two goals in the final three minutes of the first quarter on scores from Jozokos and Teddy Bettencourt to take a 2-1 lead into the second quarter.

With both teams struggling to execute possessions early it was the work of both team’s defenses that kept each opposing offense at bay.

“We defended very well but they also defended very well,” Bidstrup said. “Toward the end of the season these games can get a little defensive between these good teams.”

Gov’s middie Drew Pirie would give the home team some minor breathing room as he scored with 7:10 remaining in the second quarter on a dodge from the top. He would also add another two minutes later on a man-up strike assisted from attack Larsen Bidstrup.

Nobles middie P.J. Bell would score a crucial goal on a beautiful dodge, with 24 seconds remaining in the half, to cut the Gov’s lead to 4-2 and give Nobles some much needed momentum headed into the half.

The third quarter would begin with a burst of rare offense as Gov’s would get goals from middie Jesse Gwozdz and attack Ben Stafford and Nobles would get one back on a strike from middie Parker McKee.

Gov’s goalie Eddie Gilman would do his best work in net in the second half and neither team would score in the final 15 minutes of the game as Gov’s would hold on for the narrow win.

Despite the loss the Nobles defense, led by sophomore goalie Teddy Strzetelski (14 saves), stood tall all evening. Strzetelski made numerous big saves to help keep Nobles in the game throughout.

Gov’s has three ISL games remaining on their schedule. They will take on Thayer, Brooks and Middlesex to conclude the season. Despite defeating Belmont Hill, 12-7, earlier in the season, Gov’s shares the top spot with BH as both squads head into the final stretch run of their schedules.

D-Middie Dominance: Gov’s controlled the possession edge in the game, winning 7-of-8 draws in the first half and 11-of-14 in the game.

Gov’s long-stick middies Andy “Bug” Carper and Eli Morrissey were instrumental in both the midfield defense and the faceoff edge.

“We definitely focused on our defense today,” Jozokos said. “On the faceoffs, we had our double poles going and wanted to put pressure on whoever was taking the faceoff for them. We were strong with the checks today.”

Jozokos, Bettancourt, Gwozdz and the rest of the Gov’s middies also did a great job of playing two-way midfield as they helped neutralize one of New England’s top midfield units of juniors Cheek (1 Goal, 1 Assist), Bell (1G, 1A), and McKee (1G) throughout the game.

“We are really athletic in the midfield,” Bidstrup said. “We are a group of guys who can play hard, tough defense and we did that today against a team that has a group of very good dodgers.”
St. John's Prep standout and soon-to-be NHL Draft hopeful Brian Pinho led a deep pool of local skaters selected in Tuesday's "Phase 2" of the United States Hockey League's Draft.

Pinho was one of 13 skaters with ties to MIAA hockey who were taken on the day, including 10 who played for member schools last season.

Brooks' Foley: 'I'm going in with an open mind'

April, 1, 2013

PM ET
Brooks School recently made a new hire as head football coach, tapping Pat Foley, an experienced veteran with almost a decade of college coaching experience.

Foley, a Newburyport native and Bates College graduate, comes to the North Andover campus after four years as co-defensive coordinator at Colgate University. Prior to that, Foley had stops at Allegheny (Penn.) College, Amherst College and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. He is also the son of current UConn offensive line coach Mike Foley, considered one of New England's best recruiters.

Monday night, Foley chatted with ESPNBoston.com about coming back to the high school ranks, his lineage as a "football lifer", and the rebuilding challenge with a program that has gone 1-23 since the beginning of the 2010 season.

Why he came back to the high school ranks: "It was really two big things. First was, I had coached in college for 9 years now, absolutely loved the football part of it, but I was looking for a way to be more involved with other aspects of kids lives I think. At the college level, it got to a point where the only interaction I had with kids was on the football side, between practices and team meetings. At Brooks, I'll be more involved in other aspects of their lives. The second thing, seeing the campus and everyting, it's a great place live and raise a family, and that's something I look forward to as well."

On growing up around football with his father: "It was great, growing up around college football. It's obviously a time-consuming thing, there were certain things where he was away from home a lot. But as a young kid that really liked football, I got some awesome opportunities to be around it. I got to see the inside of things that a lot of kids probably don't get the opportunity to see."

His offensive philosophy: "I think in order to be successful you have to be able to run the ball. I understand a lot of offenses are going to the spread thing, but teams can be spread and run the ball. I think you have to be able to run the ball, whether it's out of spread looks or going under center. We're not gonna be one of these teams that throws the ball 55 times a game. We may have spread elements, but it is to run the ball first and foremost."

On the ISL going forward: I think it's a great league. As a college coach, I recruited all of the New England states so I got to see talent all over the place. I got to experience first hand the caliber and type of student you can recruit [in this league], all the ISL schools have great players. A lot of times they may get overlooked, but it's on the rise. The players and competition are only going to get better. At Brooks we hope we can be on the top side of the curve, and increase the talent level there and everything."

Assessing the talent at Brooks: "I'm going into it with a totally open mind. I'm hoping to meet the team later this week, and I'm going in with an open mind. Obviously they've struggled the last few years, but I'm going in with a totally open mind. Between now and when I get on the practice field for the first time, I'm not gonna put too much weight on the past, and see how the guys do moving forward."

NEPSAC: Brooks 4, Kents Hill 1

PM ET
SALEM, N.H. – Pretty much everything went right for the Brooks School boys hockey team Sunday morning, and not much went right for Kents Hill.

Third-seeded Brooks stuck with its defensive game plan and it paid off with a 4-1 triumph in the New England Prep School's Piatelli/Simmons Tournament at the Icenter.

Brooks scored in every period and limited Kents Hill to 15 shots on goal.

“They put a lot of pressure on us and forced us to make some bad plays,” Kents Hill coach Larry Cockrell said. “I thought their forecheck pressure was very good, and when we did get it down in their end they kept everything to the outside – that's a good recipe. Our strength is transition, and they took that away.”

Cam Armstrong, K.J. Moore, Ian Speliotis and Nick Vasilopoulos scored for Brooks, which raised its record to 18-7-5.

Brooks surrendered two goals in its three tournament games, which included victories over sixth-seeded Middlesex (4-0) and fifth-seeded Tilton (2-1).

“We're a very disciplined team defensively,” Brooks coach Dave Ries said. “We played our system as a team, and every kid competed hard.

“This is the first one [championship] in our program's history, which is huge. It's a good group of kids who do things the right way.”

Brooks led 1-0 after one period and 3-1 entering the third. Kents Hill trailed 3-0 until junior forward Drew Sommerhoff scored with 3:35 left in the second. Sommerhoff was called for roughing Brooks goaltender Colin Langham on the play, however, which killed any momentum Kents Hill had generated.

Top-seeded Kents Hill, which completed its season with a 23-8-2 record, defeated Millbrook (4-1) and Holderness (5-1) earlier in the tournament.

“We knew they had a lot of offensive weapons,” Brooks forward Mitch Nylen said. “Everyone knew their role, stuck to it and it paid off in the end. This is the best payout possible for the hard work put in by the senior class.”

Speliotis gave Brooks a 3-0 lead when he scored on a backhanded shot during a breakaway with seven minutes remaining in the second period. After Sommerhoff's goal, Brooks regained a three-goal advantage when Vasilopoulos scored at 15:20 of the third.

Armstrong, a junior defenseman, scored the only goal in the first period. It was his first goal of the season. The lead doubled when Moore – one of four Georgia residents on the Brooks roster – scored at 5:19 of the second.

“I thought they played outstanding,” Cockrell said. “They did everything right.”

Brooks' Connor Mahoney commits to Le Moyne

AM ET
Brooks School small forward Connor Mahoney verbally committed to Division 2 Le Moyne College on Friday, his AAU coach Mike Crotty Jr. wrote in an email to ESPNBoston.com this weekend.

The 6-foot-5 Hanover native, who transferred into the North Andover campus after his junior year at BC High, had a breakout campaign this summer with Crotty's Middlesex Magic AAU squad. In three consecutive games at AAU Nationals this summer in Orlando, he went off for at least 25 points and 10 rebounds.

“Connor Mahoney is the total package," Crotty wrote in a press release on the Middlesex Magic's website. He is a leader, both vocally and by example, and he has an all-around game that I think will translate beautifully in the NE-10 Conference. Connor is an outstanding shooter, and fantastic defender, and one of the best rebounders I have ever coached.

"However, his understanding of the game and overall basketball IQ might be what separates him the most. Outside of basketball, Connor is one of the best people I have ever had the chance to be around, and I am certain that Le Moyne just received a commitment from a young man that will leave an indelible mark on the school both on and off the court. Connor will always be one of my favorites and I know great things are in store for him in his future."

Middlesex Magic conclude promising summer

PM ET
Middlesex Magic director and coach Mike Crotty Jr. passes along some notes about his summer AAU squad, which went 15-7 overall for the month of July, including a 7-6 slate at AAU Nationals down in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

If you can recall, one year ago Pat Connaughton catapulted into the ESPN 100 following an explosive showing at Nationals, and Pat Ackerman played his way into a Big Ten scholarship offer. This year, players like Cardinal Spellman's Joey Glynn, Rivers' Kyle Reardon and Brooks' Anthony Barry and Connor Mahoney led a squad that won some tight contests in pool play before falling to Elite Eight contestant Alabama Challenge in the second round of bracket play.

"I think that Glynn, Mahoney, and Reardon all solidified themselves as low D1 and definite D2 players," Crotty wrote in an email. "Patriot League, NE-10 [Northeast-10], and some others were consistently following and have expressed serious interest. You know I am partial to D3, but I really believe all three of these kids, along with Anthony Barry, did more than enough to gain multiple scholarship offers."

Crotty wrote in to ESPNBoston.com with his thoughts on his standout players:



Joey Glynn (Cardinal Spellman) -- leading scorer and rebounder for the Magic in 13 games in Orlando (showcase and nationals). Joey Glynn is a division I athlete who played high above the rim for the Magic throughout their entire Summer run. Glynn showed his relentless work on the glass on both ends of the floor, his ability to defend multiple positions, and his versatile ability to score the ball. His endless motor and amazing upside are qualities that college coaches can not ignore.

Connor Mahoney (Brooks) -- Connor was the leader of the team and he stepped up on both ends of the court this entire Summer. In Orlando, in particular, he has back to back 25 point scoring outbursts where he showed his terrific 3 point shooting range, but also the ability to score driving the ball to the rim, in the post, and a deadly pullup jumper. His rebounding sometimes goes less noticed, but he was the team's second leading rebounder and he also defended wings and big with great effectiveness. In addition to his great basketball IQ and leadership, you get one of the most reliable players and people I have ever had the chance to be around. He is an instant positive addition to any college program on and off the court.

Kyle Reardon (Rivers) -- Kyle Reardon has the reputation of a terrific shooter and he is that. What people who watched him this Summer also learned is just how amazingly smart and unbelievably tough a basketball player he is. He became as invaluable a player as the Middlesex Magic had, as he played shooting guard-power forward doing whatever was asked and consistently creating match-up problems for whoever guarded him. Reardon can score in a variety of ways with a great long range jumper, ability to drive to the rim, and a tough back to the basket game. His toughness willed our team to many victories this Summer, and he will be a fantastic college player.

Anthony Barry (Brooks) -- Barry continued to show his fantastic athleticism on both ends of the court all Summer long. A bona fide D2 prospect with multiple scholarship offers in hand, Barry continued to impress as he shut down many heralded wings from all over the country. His ability to defend at such a high level, paired with his great ability to finish and make the mid-range jump shot have Anthony in a great spot in terms of his recruitment. He is also one of the best rebounding 2 guards I have ever had the pleasure to be around, and he possesses fantastic leadership qualities.

Aaron Davis (Brooks) -- The Middlesex Magic point guard battled an ankle sprain throughout the Summer, but he showed signs of exactly the type of player he is when healthy. Simply put, Davis is a throw-back point guard who sees the floor and creates for his teammates unlike any other point guard I have ever coached. He has tremendous ball handling skills, is a terrific passer, sees the floor, and is incredibly unselfish. On top of that he is a tremendous shooter, deceptive athlete who pressures the ball extremely well, and he is a natural born leader. I feel strongly that this young man will take the ball for some Coach's program and he will lead them for four years.

Michael Thorpe (Newton North) -- Thorpe emerged as a terrific combo guard for the Magic all season long. He has blazing speed and quickness which he uses to bother opposing guards and to create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. He has a very good shooting touch from deep and a great ability to finish in traffic. Thorpe will provide a versatile guard with great scoring ability at the next level.

Peter Miller (Northfield-Mt. Hermon) -- Peter Miller stood out for the Magic this Summer as he emerged as one of New England's best 2013 prospects. The 6'10 center can run the floor, has great back to the basket post game, and he is a terrific weak side shot blocker. He continues to improve in all aspects of his game including his jump shot and post defense, and he drew a variety of division 1 programs to come watch him put his skills on display.

Cooper Ainge (Wellesley) -- Cooper started off the Summer by showing that he might be the Magic's most versatile offensive guard. Ainge has a great stroke from deep, an excellent pullup jump shot, and he can get to the rim to finish and create for others. Defensively he has great lateral quickness and terrific instincts. Cooper is one of the smartest players on the Magic team, and his well rounded abilities will allow him to be a great college player.

Chris O'Keefe (Lexington) -- O'Keefe is one of the most hard-nosed players the Magic has ever had. He defends and rebounds his position extremely well, and he is as tough a player as there is on the floor. He is an efficient scorer who can make open shots and drive to the rim to score. His work ethic and competitiveness will make him an immediate value add to a college program.

Mike Corcoran (BC High) -- Corcoran consistently stepped in and showed his speed, amazing motor, and tremendous ability to defend. His ball pressure frustrated each opponent he faced, and his ability to manage a two tempo offense of transition and half court motion was invaluable to the team. The BC High Captain will return to the Catholic conference with a wealth of experience under his belt and poised for a big senior season. He is seeing interest from a variety of Division III schools.

John Mullane (King Philip) -- Mullane is a jack of all trades player who scores in a variety of ways and has the ability to defend both guards and forwards. Mullane is a tenacious rebounder and a consistent three point shooter who played multiple positions all year for the Magic. He is seeing recruitment from many Division III schools as he heads into a promising senior season.
