Garden party set for high school hockey

TD Garden has a full day of high school hockey on Sunday starting at 9 a.m. The rundown:

Super 8 (Division 1A): Austin Prep (16-1-6) vs. Malden Catholic (15-6-3), 6 p.m.

Austin Prep made the championship not by dominating the field, but rather by finding a way to win, led by sophomore goalie Elijah Harris. The Cougars have five goals in their three Super 8 games. That’s one more than Malden Catholic sophomore Ara Nazarian has scored shorthanded in this tournament. The Lancers, winners of the last two Super 8 crowns, have beaten Archbishop Williams, Springfield Cathedral, and Catholic Memorial by a combined 21-6.

Division 1: Marshfield (20-6) vs. Burlington (13-6-5), 8:15 p.m.

A meeting of the past two Division 1 state champions. Marshfield (2011 winner) defeated a Hingham team that went to the Super 8 play-in round, and thumped the Rams, 10-1, in the last regular-season game. The Rams are led by seniors Mike Carbone and Trevor Salmon. Burlington (2012 winner) won the North title, beating Middlesex rival Winchester in a shootout. Senior goalie Derek DeCastro will be a key figure for the Red Devils.

Division 2: Wilmington (20-3-2) vs. Franklin (17-7-2), 1:30 p.m.

A rematch of last year’s Division 2 final. Wilmington has had too much offense for most opponents to handle this season. Cam Owens and Brendan McDonough have helped the team average more than five goals per game in the postseason, including a 7-2 win over Danvers in the North final.

Division 3: Swampscott (19-5-0) vs. Westfield (18-3-2), 3:30 p.m.

Swampscott has won some tough battles to get to the final, most recently besting Jack Kilty and Medway, 4-3 in overtime. Westfield has simply overpowered its competition, defeating East Longmeadow, 7-0, in the West finals, then defeating Wachusett, 6-4 in the state semifinals. This season, Westfield has an astounding 127 goals and has surrendered just 34. Swampscott has had a solid season, but four of the past five state champions have come from outside EMass.


Division 1: Arlington Catholic (17-4-2) vs. St. Mary’s (18-3-4), 9 a.m.

St. Mary’s top scoring threat is 2012 Super Team member Alison Butler. The St. Anselm commit doubled her goal count from last season for a team-high 35. The senior has been a powerhouse for the four-time state champion Spartans, whose last title was in 2010. Defending state champion Arlington Catholic has Adrieanna Rossini, who has scored in overtime to send the Cougars to the title game the past two seasons.

Division 2: Duxbury (21-1-2) vs. Falmouth (19-1-2)

This contest features two of the state’s best goalies: Duxbury’s Rachel Myette and Falmouth’s Madison Scavotto. Myette is on a six-game shutout streak. Sca­votto made a name as a freshman in last year’s state final, stopping 29 shots to keep her Clippers in the game against Duxbury. This season, her 28-save effort handed Duxbury its only loss of the season, one that ended the Green Dragons’ 34-game unbeaten streak.
