Before diving into the Prep school championships, let's recap what happened last night in the first round of the Hockey East playoffs. Merrimack fired home a short handed goal to defeat Northeastern in overtime, UVM scored with 2 minutes left to beat Maine, UNH rolled by UConn, and most notably, UMass topped Notre Dame in the longest game in college hockey history (5 overtimes). If those four teams win again tonight, Boston College will host UNH next weekend in a best of three series. 

As for the New England prep school championships, here is how some of BC's recruits performed.

Dexter 1 @ Cushing 0- Luke McInnis' Dexter squad ended the season for David Cotton's Cushing team. Dexter plays Gunnery today @ 2 while Cotton's terrific season comes to end. 

Gunnery 6 Nobles 1- In perhaps the most shocking result of the day, The Gunnery scored three straight goals in the second period and added a pair of empty netters and a garbage time goal to end the prep hockey career of BC recruit Miles Wood who recorded Nobles' only goal.

Thayer 5 @ Brunswick 4- Tony's Tigers, the #8 seed in the large school division, pulled off the upset of #1 Brunswick on Wednesday afternoon. Monte Graham recorded one assist. Thayer will face Belmont Hill today. 

Brooks 2 St Sebs 1 OT- In one of the best high school hockey games I have watched in a long time, Connor Moore's Brooks squad upended St Sebastian's in overtime. Of all BC's recruits, I don't think anyone, with perhaps the exception of Cotton, has improved as much as Moore has this year. He looked absolutely tremendous. Brooks plays @ Choate today.
