Super … Friday?!?

WESTFIELD – Forget Super Bowl Sunday. We’ve got Fantastic Friday.
All 600 presale tickets for Friday night’ showdown between the Westfield and Agawam high school hockey teams sold out more than 24 hours before face-off at Amelia Park Ice Arena at 7, promising a spectacular atmosphere in store.
According to Westfield High School athletic director Karen Gomez, only 400 tickets will be available at the door Friday night.
The game will also be streamed live at
Since Agawam joined the division, the two teams have quickly become rivals and have produced some memorable games.
In last year’s Western Massachusetts Division III championship, Westfield rallied from an early deficit to win yet another crown. The Bombers rallied from a 4-goal deficit this season against the Agawam Brownies to force a stunning tie.
While the local ice will be quite a “cool” scene Friday night, another contest figures to draw quite a crowd.
The Westfield High School boys’ basketball team travels to Chicopee to take on arguably one of the area’s top five teams. The Pacers boast a 9-3 record, and are 1-1 in the Valley Wheel.
Westfield, while just 0-1 in conference play, has shown marked improvement over the last two seasons, and now figures to make a realistic run at the playoffs. The Bombers (7-4) need to win three of its final nine games to earn a tournament berth.
CHAMPIONSHIP SWIM NOTES: Tickets for the west sectional swim championships Feb. 7 at Springfield College are now available online at The boys’ portion of the swim meet begins at 2:30, with the girls’ squad taking place at 6:30.
