Shrewsbury boys’ hockey not taking success for granted as they make playoff push

February 10th, 2017

Shrewsbury — Not always do numbers paint an accurate picture of a high school sports team’s success, but for the Shrewsbury High School (SHS) boys’ varsity ice hockey team they do.

An astonishing overall record of 93-25-4 covering the past six seasons makes a good start. A State championship three years ago and District finals two seasons ago and District semifinals in 2016 stand out. This 2016-2017 squad lists three of the top seven scorers in the Quinn Conference (Matt Ward, Anthony Quinlivan, Liam Quinlivan). There is goaltender Patrick Shaughnessy, who has played the bulk of the season between the pipes with a goals-against-average of a meager 1.43 and save-percentage of 0.902. The team is riding a streak of four consecutive Quinn Conference titles and five Christmas tournament championships.
