GlobeWest: Players of the Week, Top 10 boys’ and girls’ hockey teams

Ben Boschetto , Wayland: The Warriors earned a trip to Wednesday’s Division 3 state semifinals after the senior goaltender posted an 18-save shutout of top-seeded Watertown in the North semifinals, foiling a breakaway seconds before Joe Christakis netted the game’s only goal, followed by a 20-save effort in a 3-2 victory over Newton South in the final.

Justin Hirschfeld , Medfield: With three goals in two games, the senior forward helped lift the Warriors into Sunday’s Division 2 championship game. Hirschfeld’s first was an empty-netter in a 3-0 win over Oliver Ames in the South semifinals, while the latter two staked Medfield to a two-goal lead in an eventual 3-2 win over Canton in the sectional final.

Meghan King , Wellesley: The junior goalie made 18 saves as the Raiders collected their third win over Milton this season, a 3-1 decision in the Division 2 quarterfinals. King has limited opponents to one goal or fewer on 12 occasions, five of them shutouts.


Tyler O’Keefe , Shrewsbury: An 11-day layoff made no difference for the Colonials and their junior forward. He netted a pair as Shrewsbury ran over Leominster, 7-2, in the Division 3 Central semifinals, then opened the scoring in a 4-1 win against Wachusett Regional for the Central title.

Rossini’s tally, her 30th of the season, gave the Cougars their third state championship berth in as many years.
