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

High 5

Keely Corscadden , Wellesley: The junior captain/forward one-upped classmate Cecily Docktor’s heroics — Docktor netted a third-period game-winner in a 3-2 win over Braintree earlier in the week. In another one-goal game, this time 4-3 over Norwood Saturday, Corscadden scored the game-tying and game-winning goals to reach the 20-point threshold and give the Raiders their third win of the week.

Danielle Hamilton , King Philip: A four-goal performance in a 4-3 triumph over Martha’s Vineyard Sunday — the Warriors’ third win in four games — was just the most recent in a season’s worth of impressive performances. Hamilton, a senior listed as a forward/defenseman, is one of the state’s leaders with 38 points (32 goals).


Jack Kelly , Arlington: Kelly helped the Spy Ponders rebound from a loss to Winchester — just Arlington’s third of the season — with a four-point effort in a 5-1 win over Belmont. The junior forward’s two goals raised his total to 25, ranking him No. 1 on the team and among the leaders in the Middlesex League.

Game of the Week

St. John’s (Shrewsbury) (9-4-3) vs. Boston College High (11-1-3), New England Sports Center, Marlborough, Friday, 7:30

You can thank last week’s snowstorm for this lovely Valentine’s Day matchup, which was originally scheduled for Feb. 5. The Pioneers have one point against a Super 8-type opponent — that coming in a 3-3 tie with Springfield Cathedral in the season opener — and will be seeking retribution for a 5-2 loss to the Eagles Jan. 29. Senior defenseman Bryan Nelson (Upton) and junior forward Patrick Storer (Shrewsbury) are St. John’s top scoring threats, though BC High sophomore Brandon Payzant (.929 save percentage, 1.23 goals-against average) is a tough stone to crack. The Pioneers have not beaten the Eagles in more than five years.
