The Barrington High School boys hockey team reached the championship game of the Cape Ann Savings Bank Holiday Tournament in Gloucester, Massachusetts on Monday, but fell in the finals to the Gloucester Fishermen 7-5.

But the Eagles came alive in the third period, with two additional goals, first by Watts (unassisted) and then Faulkner, assisted by Gazeryan and Watts. Sophomore Goalkeeper Cam Siwik made a number of critical saves (34 in total) to keep the Eagles in contention. Final score: Hendricken 4, Eagles 3.
The Eagles played again on Thursday evening, this time against East Greenwich. The back and forth match was scoreless after two periods, with both teams afforded significant chances but unable to capitalize.
