Athlete of the week: Marlborough hockey goalie Erik Carlson
Marlborough – This week’s Athlete of the Week is Marlborough High School’s hockey goalie, Erik Carlson, who was recently named MVP of the Boro’s Cup after the Marlborough Panthers beat Wachusett, 4-3, in double overtime. Carlson, a senior, stopped 32 out of 35 shots in the game. The hardest thing about playing goalie, he said, is “keeping your head up after letting one get by you. You can’t let it get to you.” Carlson, also a golfer with a 0.2 handicap, has a brother Kyle who is a starting defenseman for the team.
