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

High 5

Mike Carbone , Marshfield: The Division 1 championship game against Burlington Sunday did not play out the way the senior captain would have liked. But he was a difference-maker throughout. He netted the Rams’ first goal — 28 seconds after the Red Devils took the lead — and created a handful of other scoring chances, one of which hit the left post. He ended his season with 49 points.

Brandon Collett , Catholic Memorial: The five-spot he gave up to eventual Super 8 champion Malden Catholic in the Division 1A semifinals last Wednesday tied for the most he had yielded all season, but it doesn’t take much away from an overall strong season for the young goaltender from Easton. Just a freshman, Collett finished with an .898 save percentage while giving up a tick under 2½ goals per game.


Rachel Myette , Duxbury: For the last month of the season, the junior captain was statistically perfect between the pipes. She didn’t give up a single goal en route to the Dragons’ third straight Division 2 state title, a run that included 21 saves vs. Falmouth in the championship game Sunday, running her shutout streak to seven in a row. She finished her season with a 0.75 goals-against average and .959 save percentage.

Jimmy Tierney , Oliver Ames: The Tigers didn’t play on the final day of the season, but they made a spirited run to the South final behind the strength of their sophomore netminder. During an 11-0-1 run from Jan. 30 until the South final, a 3-1 loss to Franklin March 12, Tierney allowed 0.83 goals per game.

Kacie Smith , Norwood: A South quarterfinal matchup against Falmouth ended the Mustangs’ season, but the sophomore forward has a lot to hang her hat on going forward. With a team-high 50 points (32 goals, 18 assists), Smith finished as the No. 2 scorer in the Bay State Conference (behind Wellesley senior Molly Connolly ) and 12th in the state (third among sophomores).
