Algonquin hockey wins in overtime to take Boro’s Cup from Wachusett

December 21st, 2015

Algonquin’s Justin O’Connell (#22) celebrates after scoring the game winning goal as teammate Joe Sullivan looks on.

Northborough/Southborough – It may seem to be one of the most unusual idiosyncrasies in high school sports where a victory is recorded as a tie, but for the Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) varsity ice hockey team, it’s all just fine.

The tenacious Tomahawk skaters battled Wachusett Regional High School into a scoreless double overtime for the much-coveted Boro’s Cup championship at the North Star Youth Forum in Westborough Dec. 19, before clinching at the 9:47 mark when co-captain forward Justin O’Connell ended it all in dramatic fashion scoring the only goal of the contest to seal the title. The game is officially a tie as OT is only used to determine outcomes of tournament games in regular season, but all that is a formality. Algonquin (1-0-1) deservedly claims bragging rights as the 2015 Boro’s Cup champions, the team’s first crown since 1997, ending a streak of four consecutive cups won by Wachusett.
