But Binghamton Senators head coach Luke Richardson told WBNG recently that he hopes to have Da Costa back by the end of the season, in time for the AHL playoffs.
“That was one of the worst most breaks I’ve seen,” Richardson said, “It looks like a car accident. It’s basically crushed in.”
Eagle becomes an Eagle
Lynnfield resident Jake Burt will go from being an Eagle at St. John’s Prep to a Boston College Eagle. The junior tight end from Lynnfield had plenty of great offers to choose from and made a verbal commitment to play college football at the Heights late yesterday afternoon.
“It all happened pretty fast this week,” said Burt, who also played a key role for the basketball team. “BC had made me an offer on March 15, and I decided I was ready to commit. I am so excited to be an Eagle, and I’m glad the whole process is behind me. I really didn’t think I was going to make my choice so soon, and hadn’t set a time table.”
Burt was a key performer on the SJP basketball team. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder is no relation to North Andover resident, Max Burt.
Walsh starring in dual role
North Andover resident Brandon Walsh continues to wow everyone at UMass Amherst in several roles. He is the squad’s top catcher, part-time starter, part-time reliever and designated hitter. He went seven inning allowing one earned in a big 5-4 win over Dayton recently. In the next game, a 5-3 win over Northeastern on Wednesday (Beanpot) he had an RBI on a fielder’s choice in a big three-run inning that eventually won the game.
