Marblehead, Winthrop boys hockey split weekend series
Anyone who was lucky enough to take in this weekend’s home-and-home series between the Marblehead and Winthrop boys hockey teams was in for a treat, as the two Northeastern Conference foes went back and forth to each earn a win. Marblehead earned a 3-2 win Saturday on the road at Larsen Arena in Winthrop, then Winthrop came right back and won 3-2 in a road game at Cronin Memorial Rink in Revere.
“It was a pretty cool experience to play two games like this back to back, it kind of took me back to my college playing days where we would do this because of travel considerations,” said Marblehead coach Chris Wells. “I honestly wish we could have more weekend series like this, I think it really adds to the competitiveness and turns these into mini rivalry games.”
