(Jan. 3, 2013) The varsity hockey team lost 4-2 to Mashpee in the finals of the Judy Kostas Memorial Tournament in Orleans Saturday after beating Cape Tech last Wednesday 2-1 in a shootout to reach the championship game.
The 0-2-1 Whalers – the shootout win counts as a tie in the record books – entered the tournament coming off a 2-1 seasonopening loss to Sacred Heart Dec. 22 on the road, after their home opener Dec. 19 against Blue Hills was postponed due to inclement weather.
Nantucket was scheduled to host Southeastern yesterday, too late for this edition of Sports, and Martha’s Vineyard Saturday, both at Nantucket Ice.
