Woburn bounced back from an early Wildcat push and went on to a 10-6 victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Ken Blaszka will be on the sidelines for the Woburn High School boys lacrosse team. But for the last week of the season, he knows there’s not much coaching he has left to do. “At this point we aren’t putting anything new in the game plan. It’s take it to the cooker, score, and stop them,” said Blaszka, whose team needs two victories in its final four regular season contests to earn a playoff berth. “There’s no coaching at this point. It’s just who wants it. Hopefully we want it and we’ll make the tournament.” Woburn improved its playoff chances on Thursday when it took a lead into halftime and dominated the time of possession in the final two periods for a 10-6 victory. It was just Wilmington’s third loss of the season, while the victory …

Woburn tied the game, lost the lead and tied the game again within the final two minutes of the game before losing in the 10th round of the shootout to St. Mary's on Sunday.
Sunday's Division 1 girls hockey semifinal was a 10-round slugfest. So was the shootout that eventually ended the Woburn High School season. Though the top-seeded Lady Tanners twice tied the game during a wild final minute-plus of regulation, St. Mary's of Lynn eventually came out on top of a 10-round shootout to advance with a 4-3 win. Trailing 2-1, standout forward Kayla Smith evened things up with a goal with 1:31 left to play. But St. Mary's recaptured the lead just 18 seconds later, seemingly sealing a berth in the state final. Erica Lissner, however, had other ideas as she extended the Woburn season thanks to the tying tally with 33.5 seconds to go. After a scoreless overtime, the teams went to a shootout. Regulation wasn't enough …

The Lady Tanners entered the final period versus Billerica tied on Tuesday, but used a pair of late goals to advance into the Division 1 semifinal round.
Woburn High School junior Emily Lissner netted three goals on Tuesday night, and the top-seeded Lady Tanners needed every one of them to escape upstart Billerica in the Division 1 girls quarterfinals. The locals earned the victory despite falling behind 1-0 early on and entering the third period tied at 1-1. Lissner's second goal gave Woburn a 2-1 edge with 10 minutes to play, and she added her final tally with just over eight minutes to go. Though Billerica scored with less than one minute remaining, it was too late and the Tanners survived. As a result, Woburn will take on St. Mary's of Lynn on Sunday at Chelmsford Forum with a berth in the state championship game at TD Garden on the line. Are you a big fan of the Tanners? You'll also …

The quest to bring a state championship banner home to Woburn High School during the winter season comes down to one team.

Woburn takes on Middlesex rival Burlington in the North Division 1 opening round.
The Woburn High School boys hockey team has proven itself to be among the best teams in Division 1. Starting Sunday, they'll have the chance to prove just how good they are. Following a 10-6-4 regular season, the Tanners snagged the No. 4 seed when the North Division 1 brackets were released earlier this week.
