Game of the Week

Westwood girls vs. Medway/Ashland, Friday, 5:30 p.m., Canton

The top two teams in SEMGHL West were slated to play last Wednesday before the game was snowed out. The matchup has not lost its luster since then though, as both teams still entered the week undefeated in league play after tying in their first matchup. Junior Kat Heidelberger and sophomore Allie Damren have emerged to provide the Wildcats depth behind the top line of seniors Kim Egizi, Ela Hazar, and Kelly Healey. Westwood’s young players will have to come up big if they are going to bounce back from two losses last week (the team’s first two losses of the year) and take another step toward a division title.
