Warriors lose first TVL decision to first-place Westwood.
FRANKLIN – The Medfield High School boys' hockey team committed too many mistakes in crucial areas of the ice and missed an opportunity to take over first place in the Tri-Valley League standings after a 3-2 loss to Westwood Saturday at Veteran's Arena in Franklin.

"In the third period, it's a one-goal game against a team that everyone says is the best team in the state, and our guys just didn't handle that pressure well." Despite the mental mistakes late in the game, Medfield applied plenty of pressure on Westwood, starting with a goal 45 seconds into the contest. Ben Cox controlled the rebound from a Jim Magrath shot and beat the Westwood goalie…
