Sluggish start to the new year for the Everett boys’ co-op hockey team

Tide looks to bounce back with games against East Bridgewater Saturday, Timberlane Monday 

They will have better days, but maybe the Everett High School boys’ co-op hockey team (2-2) can chalk this loss up to the schedule maker, who had them playing pretty much only once a week since the season got underway midway through last month.

The Crimson Tide ended up losing to host Somerville Wednesday night (Jan. 4), 4-1. It was the type of game that coach Craig Richards and his players would soon rather forget, and turn that proverbial page to the next game on Saturday afternoon versus non-league host East Bridgewater, starting at 5:30 p.m. They will then return home to the Veterans Rink on Elm Street to take on Timberlane Regional, another non-league foe, two days later on Jan. 9, beginning at 4 p.m.

“We got outplayed, outhustled and outworked,” said Richards bluntly after the Somerville debacle. “There are no bright spots tonight.”

Jake Simpson of Malden was credited with the team’s lone lamplighter assisted by Everett’s David Saia. Malden goaltender Ben Rosa was manning the net in this game.

The Tide boys hope to bounce back quickly against aforementioned East Bridgewater on Saturday, and Timberlane at home two days later.
