Swampscott hockey faces tough bout against South champion Medway tonight

(Continued)

Senior captain Corey Carmody leads the Big Blue in both overall (32 points) and playoff (6 goals, 8 points) scoring. Morretti is second in both categories (30 and 7, respectively), while senior defenseman Trevor Massey (27 points) and freshman winger Noah Maercklein (26 points) both have five points in three playoff games.

While he didn’t catch all of Monday’s game, Faia came away impressed with Medway’s possession of the puck, as well as with Mustangs senior goaltender Mike Narducci (7 shutouts this season).

Likewise, Swampscott has relied on freshman goaltender Tristan Bradley, who stopped 19 shots in Saturday’s North final. Bradley has allowed just four goals in the first three playoff games with a 1.33 goals against average.

“He’s a freshman, but only in name,” Faia said of Bradley. “He’s never fazed or rattled; he’s actually a pretty laid-back kid who shows great composure and welcomes the challenge.”
