Not serious ones of course. When I express a love of cosmic horror, the link between horror and comedy, dark and angry surrealism, nihilism, and all of the other things I over-analyse, it’s an expression of interest and fascination that is – at its core – what geekiness is all about: an open expression of […]

This did not result in any sort of calls for the entire system to be […]

Very little separated BC High and Pope Francis at the end of the 2017-18 high school hockey season. Pope Francis was just 52 seconds away from its first Super Eight championship when BC High tied the game to force overtime, then notched the winning goal 1:30 into the extra session. Now BC High enters a season as defending champion for the first time since 2007-08 and should remain one of the favorites. Dream Teamer Thomas Kramer returns for his senior season to lead the Eagles and will be joined by his younger brothers, sophomores Peter and Joseph Kramer. Matt Lakus is another veteran up front with P.J. Donahue back on the blue line. Senior Chase Congdon saw action in net a year ago. As always, it will be a grind for BC High just to get through the Catholic Conference race. Xaverian is poised for a big season with a solid returning group, sparked by the top line of All-Scholastic Josh Barton, Ryan Pomposelli and Matty Ryan. “It is no secret we bring back a potent line, which will draw everyone’s top D pair and defenders,” Hawks coach Dave Spinale said, “We hope to be in the mix and compete every night.” Catholic Memorial will be led by senior captains Chris Rooney at forward and Thomas Larson on defense. St. John’s Prep suffered heavy losses during the offseason, but always is a team to watch. Senior Tyler Raposa and juniors Jack Gilligan and Patrick Moran will captain the Eagles. Malden Catholic, under new coach Michael Collett, will try to get back to the postseason after missing for the first time in 12 years. As for Pope Francis, the Western Mass. power has a dynamic first line of its own with Makem Demers, Max Cocchi and Jon Tavella, along with top blueliner Joe Salvon. Makem Demers (right) will try to lead Pope Francis to its first Super Eight title after the Cardinals fell just short in 2017-18. “We should be strong with 12 seniors returning from last year’s team,” Cardinals coach Brian Foley said. “We will be four lines deep (with) eight D and two very good goalies (Victor Larssen, Ben Zaranek).” Pope Francis is one of several teams skating as Division 1 independents this season, along with former Catholic West foes St. John’s (Shrewsbury) and St. Peter-Marian – the latter of which now gets players from St. Bernard’s as part of a co-op. Hingham has the longest track record as a successful Div. 1 independent and the Harbormen should be strong again with a veteran group led by Dream Team defenseman Jake Higgins. Perhaps the most intriguing addition to that group is Shrewsbury. Winners of the last two Div. 3 state titles, the Colonials officially made the jump in September after controlling Central Mass. for much of the last decade. Brockton also will be independent this season with the Big Three (down to just two teams with Div. 2 Durfee) no longer recognized by the MIAA for hockey. The Catholic Central League could be a two-team race again. Austin Prep lost some top-line talent, but should have enough experience led by senior goalie Robbie Farrell and forward Max Pineo. St. Mary’s has an interesting mix of youth and experience, and will follow senior captains Colin Reddy, Nicholas Napolitano and Kyle Ouellette. Archbishop Williams will push for a top spot in the CCL, while Matignon rebuilds under new coach Derek Edgerly. Waltham skated away with the Div. 1 state title last March, and the Hawks will be one of the contenders out of the Dual Valley/Merrimack Valley. Senior JT Logue at forward and Mikey Burke on defense return for the Hawks. Andover, off its first Super Eight appearance, will have a bit of a different look this season with a strong cast of veteran forwards. “With the top three forward lines returning … we are a team that will be focused on having our offense take a larger role in the team’s success,” Golden Warriors coach Chris Kuchar said. Central Catholic was the top seed in last year’s Super Eight, but the Raiders not only suffered heavy losses over the offseason, but will adjust to a third different coach in four years with D.J. Conte taking the reins. Senior defenseman Steven Birch is the top returning player. Arlington, just two years removed from a Super Eight title, could be ready to make another run at it behind senior forward Dara Conneely and defenseman Jack Simon. We have some holes we have to fill,” Spy Ponders coach John Messuri said. “If we figure them out then we could be really competitive.” Arlington will be pushed in the Middlesex Liberty by Winchester, which reached the Div. 1 North final last winter, as well as a veteran Reading squad. Belmont also can’t be counted out after a surprising run to last year’s North semifinals, in which they pushed Waltham to overtime. On the Freedom side, Burlington remains a favorite but many coaches expect Melrose to challenge for the league title. The Bay State Conference has realigned its 10 teams. Framingham returns all-star forward Mikey Tersoni and Wellesley brings back goalie Drew Hubbard, and both should be strong in the Carey Divison along with Natick. Braintree, coming off another Div. 1 South final appearance, is the favorite in the Herget with 12 veterans led by defenseman Kyle Roche, but rising Needham, Walpole, Milton and Weymouth all will be solid. Marshfield won the Div. 1 South championship a year ago and the Rams could have designs on even bigger things this season. They return their top six scorers and five defensemen with experience. Jack Gatie also split time in net a year ago. The Rams will be pushed by Falmouth and top returnee Nick Champani in the Atlantic Coast League. Barnstable, led by one of the top players on Cape Cod in Jac Cordeiro, will try to fend off Bridgewater-Raynham in the Old Colony League. Franklin has another veteran group and is a favorite again in the Hockomock League, followed by Mansfield and King Philip. Look for Duxbury once again to be a favorite in the Patriot League, while Newburyport will try to defend its Cape Ann League crown in what should be a wide-open race. Medford is another perennial tournament team, now in its second season playing out of the Northeastern Conference.
