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

High 5

Carly Boyle , Wellesley: After her Raiders were one of four teams to enjoy a preliminary-round bye in the Division 2 bracket, the sophomore center netted a hat trick and added an assist in a 6-0 win over Shawsheen Valley Tech. The big game gave Boyle 29 points (16 goals, 13 assists) this season.

Delaney Couture , Shrewsbury: Her team’s leading scorer, the seventh-grader showed off her offensive prowess with four goals and an assist in two games to help the Colonials reach the Division 2 quarterfinals against Westwood on Saturday. Her final goal against Dedham last weekend was the game-winner in double overtime, and gave her a hat trick.


Kathryn Hamer , Medway/Ashland: Thanks in part to back-to-back shutouts from the junior goalie, the Mustangs are into the Division 2 quarterfinals, deeper than they’ve ever been. They beat Mansfield/Oliver Ames, 2-0, and Whitman-Hanson/Pembroke, 1-0, as Hamer posted consecutive whitewashes for the first time all season.

Al Lynch , Framingham: The Flyers’ captain made 68 saves in two games to land his team a spot in the Division 1 South semifinals against Braintree. A 45-save effort helped Framingham oust fourth-seeded Marshfield, 5-2, before 23 more downed fifth-seeded Franklin, 4-1. Lynch’s .926 save percentage and 2.13 goals-against average faced a test Wednesday against the No. 1 Wamps, with whom the Flyers split the season series 1-1.

Jack Scannell , Medfield: As the Warriors moved past Quincy (6-2) and Martha’s Vineyard (3-1) to move into the Division 2 South semifinals, Scannell racked up three goals and an assist to improve his season point total to 28. The junior forward netted two goals and helped on another against the Presidents.
