The Mustangs lost to a Weymouth team (3-2) in the tournament, who eventually advanced to the South Sectional Finals. Despite losing nine seniors, many of this year's returning players come with valuable experience, some learned on the ice, but much of the lessons and wisdom come from off the ice. Fellow teammate and classmate Matt Brown suffered a traumatic injury during a game on January 23, that forever changed all of their lives in an emotional year no one will ever forget. Brown returns to the team this season as a junior, and Head Coach Bill Clifford said…
