WESTFIELD – The Wachusett High School boys ice hockey team led 1-0 after one period, and, after scoring two more goals in the second, cruised to a 3-0 win over Westfield Saturday on Senior Night at Amelia Park Ice Arena.
It was close early as both teams had ample scoring chances, but it was one of Central Massachusetts’ top-ranked teams, Wachusett, that came away with the lead … and in the end, the victory.
