Please see the USA Hockey YouTube video (about 4 minutes in length) via this link to review 'Heads Up Hockey' principles.

Excerpt From The Valley Hockey League Website - 2013/14 Season
 
The 2014 Valley Hockey League (VHL) championships were a culmination of a fun and exciting season that began nearly eight months ago.  During that time, teams competed valiantly and parity was maintained in order to provide the most competitive experience for all.  At the end of the championship run, the tally was taken and a total of 156 medals were given out to a total of 67 VHL programs. Leading the overall medal charge was Natick with seven medals (two golds and five silvers). It was an impressive performance by the 15 Natick teams in the VHL. This year’s total medal count was four more than Natick earned in 2013.
 
One of the Natick program highlights was no doubt delivered by the Natick Squirt - "A1" team which captured the top spot in the Squirt Central National – AA Division. The seventh-seeded team entering the championship rounds, the Comets squad not only captured its divisional title but it went on to win the Squirt "AA" overall championship against Newton Squirt AA2 by a score of 3-1.

Comets Bantam A Team Wins Nauset Cup
posted 11/12/2013
 
The Natick Bantam A team went down to Orleans, MA to play in the Nauset Cup. This tournament had a few town teams but also had select and state teams in it so the competition was excellent . In the first game against the Hurricanes of Hyannis, Natick put themselves in a bad position in the tournament by loosing 4-1. In the second game, the Natick boys buckled down and beat the local Barstable team 2-0 .

"We out skated the local guys in the second game" said coach Dan O'Connell. "We had energy which is something we were missing in the first game."

In the third game, the Comets faced a hard-hitting Breakers team and Natick used speed, passing, and riding a hot goalie Nick Ricardi to win the game. The team netted 5 goals en route to shutting out the Breakers.

In the final game of the tournament, Natick played Yarmouth-Dennis' state play down team.  The team comprised Bantam and Midget level skaters. Yarmouth-Dennis had not lost a game yet in the tournament and was stingy with allowing only 3 goals against them. The championship game was hard hitting and fast paced.  Natick's defense, offense, and goal keeper did what they had to do to win, shutting out a good Yarmouth-Dennis team 2-0 to win the championship and the cup.

Comets Travel Teams Ice Schedule Information
posted 10/27/2013
 
In an effort to alleviate some frustration with the timing of the posting of the practice schedule, we would like to provide some background information.  To make sure that the practice schedule is fair to all teams, the Valley Hockey League (Boys) and Middlesex Yankee Conference League (Girls) leagues must first post their game schedules.  This season the Comets (and other programs) have seen delays in posting these schedules, especially for Mites and Midgets.    
 
This season’s schedule also incorporates more specialized practices such as skills, goalie clinics, and checking/body positioning clinics which, while beneficial, cannot be adjusted.  In addition, we try to rotate teams through the least desirable practice hours as best we can.  Lastly, playdown games have started and the receipt of these schedules also needs to be taken into consideration prior to committing to a practice schedule for Comets teams.
 
The conclusion of the parity round for the Valley Hockey League and the posting of the remaining Midget games should help streamline the flow of information.  While we strive to post practices as far ahead of time as possible, we are also aware that posting without all the needed information would later result in date/time changes for multiple teams and cause confusion.  Every effort is made to quickly post the practice schedule as soon as all the information is available to us.

Comets U10 Girls Mass. State Champion Runner Up
posted 03/24/2013
 
Congratulations to the Comets U10 girls team on a spectacular showing in the Mass. state tournament the weekend of March 22. 

Claire Maxwell was the star of game one in the tournament, scoring all 4 goals in a 4-2 victory over Westwood.

Arlington was the next opponent for the second game and they proved to be a tough team.  Claire got us going early in the game with her 5th goal of the tournament but Arlington answered in the second period. The game was locked at 1-1 until Jacqui Poulack netted what would be the game winner with 5 minutes remaining in the third period.

The Comets girls broke it open against Canton with a decisive 8-0 win in the third game of the tournament. Jacqui wore the hat with three goals, while single goals were scored by Krista Anderson, Nina Christof, Caroline Gates and Soobin Lee.

The semi-final game against Andover was one for the record books. An epic battle ensued! Natick went down 1-0 in the second period but never quit in the game. Halfway through the third period, Jacqui knotted things up at 1 apiece.  Ava Kaplan then scored what looked to be the go-ahead goal but the referees did not see the puck go over the line and called it "no goal". At the end of regulation, the score remained 1-1.  Five over time periods later (6 minutes each), Erin Quirk slammed in a Krista Anderson rebound for the victory.  

In the state championship game against Melrose, the Comets girls gave all they could. They played their hearts out and were awesome. Ali Joseph was incredible in goal helping to keep it only a 1-0 game going into the third period. The Comets girls had their chances but just couldn't convert and in the end. Melrose prevailed in the championship game 2-0.

Every girl on the Comets team gave their all and made the Natick Comets proud! Congratulations to whole team; Claire Maxwell, Jacqui Poulack, Krista Anderson, Nina Christof, Caroline Gates, Soobin Lee, Erin Quirck, Ali Joseph, Caitlin Ryder , Colleen Quirk, Katie Crews, Heidi Gallenberger, Sarah Manning, Melanie Cotta, Caroline O'Connell, Caitlin Collins, Ava Kaplan and Kaitlyn Dempsey.

Bill Chase Girls Tournament Summary ::: Two Great Final Games
posted 01/20/2013
 
On Sunday, January 20, the Bill Chase Girls Tournament witnessed two great championship hockey games.  

In the first championship game of the afternoon, U10 teams Natick and Walpole did battle on the ice. After three periods of regulation play, the score was 0-0. Overtime play ensued and the score remained 0-0 after the three overtime periods (overtime play had skaters 4 on 4, 3 on 3, and then 2 on 2). After the 2 on 2 third overtime period the game went to a shootout. Walpole prevailed in the shootout and the final score was 1-0. Both goalies played a fantastic game with many saves and all the girls on both teams left everything on the ice over the hour plus it took to complete the game.

In the second championship game of the afternoon, U12 teams Natick and Newton went head-to-head in a high-energy and intense game. After Newton went up in the game 2-0, Natick fought back to tie the game 2-2. In the third period Newton scored on a rebound to make the score 3-2. With under two minutes left in the game Natick pulled its goalie and skated 6 on 5 and had a few good scoring chances in the final two minutes. The game ended with a 3-2 victory for Newton. Like the U10 championship game, the goaltending for both teams was great and both teams skated aggressively with a lot of passion in their respective efforts.

Congratulations to U10 Walpole and U12 Newton on their tournament victories.

Thank you to Bill Jackson and Lisa Landon for coordinating the logistics of the tournament and ensuring everything ran well.
