The Gloucester Fishermen hockey team had their season come to an end during their semifinal bout against Lincoln-Sudbury on Tuesday night. The Fishermen had a great season going 14-6-3 and winning their first playoff game in 8 years.

However on Tuesday night, the Fishermen were just outplayed by the Warriors in their 5-1 loss.

“We can’t be too disappointed,” said senior captain Eddie Mahoney. “Because overall the season, was one of our most successful in years.’

The Fishermen won the NEC South for the second consecutive year, and had three players with 35+points on the season. Salvatore Costanzo and Edward Mahoney had 37 points while Liam Lyons had 40 points. Lyons is the first player in ten years to amount to forty points. Both Costanzo and Lyons will be returning next year.

Leadership roles and the vast amount of minutes played by both senior captains, Alex Enes and Eddie Mahoney will need to be filled by next year’s team as both captains were all-stars and great leaders.

Next year the team is simply reloading, rather than rebuilding. Important returning players are Noah Poliskey, Sal Costanzo, Liam Lyons, Robbie Horne, and Derek Hopkins will look to continue their successful play into next season.
