Swampscott's state title chase falls short in Garden loss to Westfield (With Photo Slideshow)

(Continued)

The Big Blue, who got solid all-around defense from Carman, Chris Dandreo, Patrick Burkett and sophomore Joey Faia, sensed a momentum shift and tried to take advantage.

“We knew we had to get one — one goal and see what happens,” said Faia. “They feed off those goals, and we had some energy there ...but we also ran out of time.”

Westfield iced the game and the state title with an empty net goal by Anthony Cagliostro with 49 seconds left. Collier led the Bombers with two goals and one assist and Sean Spohr (a team-leading 53 points) added three assists.

So with a school record 19 wins in tow, plus the first Division 3 North championship and state final appearance in program history, the Big Blue say goodbye to eight seniors: Dandreo, Burkett, Carman, Serino, Carmody, forward Tyler Peterson, goalie Alex Powell and Massey.

“The seniors finished their career at Boston Garden,” said Faia. “What more can you ask for?”
