CM, BC High Set to Take on Frozen Field of Dreams Saturday at Fenway

by Danny Jaillet

BOSTON — In less than three days, two high school hockey powerhouses will have the opportunity many boys only dreamed about. Boston College High School and Catholic Memorial High Schools will play at “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark” on Saturday at 1 p.m. This game is the first game of the Sun Life Frozen Fenway “Boston Rivalries Day” doubleheader.

In the U.S. High School Hockey Massachusetts rankings published on Monday, BC High is ranked second in the state with a 5-1-0 record. Their counterparts from West Roxbury are ranked sixth at 4-3-0.

On Saturday, the Eagles lost to Malden Catholic, 7-4, at Valley Forum II. Moe Regan, a senior from West Roxbury, is the Knights’ leading scorer with four tallies on the season.

The points leader for BC High is Ryan McDonough, a junior from Dorchester. We could see either Garrison Norton or Peter Cronin in the net for BC High. The Eagles have scored a whopping 32 goals while their net minders have only given up ten.

In the meantime, the Knights also fell in their last game — a 4-0 shutout on Saturday night at Hingham. CM scored 13 goals so far this year, while giving up seven.

In the Catholic Conference, Memorial is ranked second and BC High is ranked third. The Eagles are 3-0 at home and will look to keep that record unblemished as they will be the designated hosts. Catholic Memorial looks to add a second victory to their road record as they currently stand at 1-1.

On paper, this looks to be a great game. I think both teams will come out firing, wanting to impress all the watching eyes. On the other hand, will the aforementioned “watching eyes” and outdoor weather affect their play? It will be interesting to see and is sure to be a game for the ages.

Following Saturday’s tilt, the Knights battle St. John’s on Monday afternoon at Boston University’s Walter Brown Arena. The Eagles will tussle with another league rival, Xaverian, on Jan. 18 at the Clark Athletic Center on the campus of UMass-Boston.
