Fire on ice

The incomparable Conway, and other memories from the 2013-14 high school hockey season

(Continued)

5. Curtis Harper and Erik Coburn, Londonderry — The dynamic duo were a huge reason for the Lancers’ unprecedented success. Harper scored a team-best 19 goals while captain Coburn led the team with 50 points, including 13 goals.

6. Veronica Alois, Andover — It was a brilliant season for the sophomore, who netted a stellar 31 goals, including four games of at least three goals and a last-second game winner against Billerica. She scored in 14 of the Warriors’ final 16 games.

The Puck Stops Here

1. Colin Soucy, Central Catholic — Defending Eagle-Tribune Player of the Year led the Raiders to another Super 8 berth with a 1.87 goals-against average and .899 save percentage. He had one shutout and saved 29 shots against Austin Prep at yjr TD Garden.

2. Sam MacDonald, Salem — The first-year starter was a rock for the Blue Devils, finishing with three shutouts, a 1.34 goals-against average and .936 save percentage in 21 games.

3. Keith Linnane, North Reading — Four-year starter was a stalwart in net for the Hornets, with a 1.36 goals-against average and .943 save percentage in 24 games. He notched five shutouts and earned CAL MVP honors.

4. Mike Gleason, Haverhill — Sophomore stepped into the starting job and delivered a 1.88 GAA and .931 save percentage with a shutout. Allowed three goals total in the final three games to clinch tourney berth.

5. Joe McGrath, Londonderry — Senior’s regular season numbers weren’t spectacular, but he was when it counted. Made 26 saves in an upset of Salem, 24 saves in a state semifinal win over Pinkerton (the goal allowed was controversial) and made 21 stops in the final. He had two shutouts.

Senior superlatives:

Lloyd Hayes, Central Catholic — “King of the Clutch Award” for a captain who started his career with a huge Super 8 goal as a freshman, and always seemed to star in the toughest spots.

Tom Maguire, Haverhill — “Way Back Machine Award” for the co-captain who could have been content standing out in one sport, but dedicates himself to starring in hockey, football and baseball.
