Led by two Sean Kyne goals, the Tigers outplayed Dennis-Yarmouth Wednesday in Bourne.
The Oliver Ames boys' hockey team may have only been hitting on all cylinders during the first and third periods, but that was more than enough Wednesday afternoon at the Gallo Arena in Bourne. "We’ve been having trouble in the second period all year long," OA coach Jim Sullivan said. "I don’t know what it is but we just can’t play three periods. But, we took the first period, started it off and then finished it off in the third so I’m happy." The No. 4 Tigers scored twice in the first and twice in the third to beat No. 13 Dennis-Yarmouth in the Div. 2 South Sectional First Round game, 4-1. With the win, OA will move on to play Coyle Cassidy in the South Sectional Quarterfinals Saturday. The Tigers overpowered the Dolphins offensively with…

The Tigers defeated Stoughton, 9-0 Wednesday night.
The Oliver Ames hockey team soundly defeated Davenport Division foe Stoughton Wednesday night at the Asiaf Arena in Brockton. The Tigers scored more goals than they had in a game all season to beat the Black Knights, 9-0. With the win, Oliver Ames improved to 6-4-1. Stoughton dropped to 1-9-2. While OA came away with an easy victory, it had trouble finding the net in the early minutes. The Tigers out-shot the Black Knights in the first period, 29-3, but were only able to find the back of the net twice: A goal from senior Jimmy Waitz with an assist from junior Colin Lozzi and a Thomas McNeely (SR) goal with an assist from senior Justin Davinder. "We were all over them but could not put the puck home," OA coach Jim Sullivan said. "We are …

OA suffered their first loss of the season.
Patience and defense were key for the King Philip boys' hockey team Saturday evening at the Asiaf Arena in Brockton in a Hockomock League clash against Oliver Ames. Despite being out-shot by the Tigers, 37-23, the Warriors managed to put together a 3-0 victory against a solid Tigers team. With the win, KP improved to 1-3-2 (the Warriors beat Milton in overtime during Quincy Holiday Tournament). "We’ve been battling up until this point," King Philip coach Mark Homer said. "This is a real first actual win. Getting that first win is great and then coming over here and beating a team like Oliver Ames - they’re undefeated." The Tigers finished the game with their first loss, falling to 4-1-1. Coming off a great win against perennial power …

Tigers record one of their best seasons since the 1980's.
Last season, the Oliver Ames hockey team did something that hadn’t been done since the 1980’s – advance to the Division 2 South sectional semifinal. One year later, under interim head coach Jim Sullivan, the Tigers made a return trip to the South semis where they fell to Franklin for the second year in a row back on March 9 in Bourne. With a record of 13-5-4 (8-2-3 Hockomock League, 5-0-1 Davenport Division) OA earned a second place finish in the Davenport Division behind perennial Hock power Canton and recorded one of its best seasons in recent memory. Much of that success is contributed to this year’s senior class – Derek Johnson, Alex Weibler, Dylan Burns, Matt Carroll, Nate Studholme and captains Ryan McGrath and Drew Koeppel – who …

The Tigers were out-shot, 40-13 in the loss.
For the second year in a row, Hockomock foe Franklin (18-2-3) knocked off the Oliver Ames hockey team (13-5-4) in the South Sectional Semi-Finals, ending the season for the Tigers. Franklin can thank two quick goals and a dominant first round for setting the tone in the 4-1 win. "I think we were a little over confident when we came out, but they just handed it right to us and we weren’t ready for it," Oliver Ames coach Jim Sullivan said. Franklin's Evan Stawarz, a senior, was assisted by senior Adam Hall with 5:28 left to play in the first period. A short time later, with 2:29 left, Senior Ryan Garland was assisted by freshman Justin Miller to make the score 2-0 after a period. Franklin was also able to hold the Tigers scoreless throughout…

The Tigers beat the Hornets, 4-2 Saturday.
The Oliver Ames hockey team won one for the Davenport Division Saturday afternoon at Foxborough Sports Center. The Tigers beat Kelly-Rex Division Mansfield, 4-2 in the Hockomock Crossver game. The win also created strong momentum for the 12-4-3 Tigers as they prepare for the State Tournament. "People were saying we get no respect," OA coach Jim Sullivan said. "Well, you don’t get respect unless you play well. If you lose to teams that you should have beaten it comes back to haunt you, so today was a good win" The Tigers came out firing in the first period. After Mansfield Captain Mike Blackman put the Hornets ahead at the 9:07 mark off an assist from fellow Captain Steve Folan, OA's Ryan McGrath answered with a goal 17 seconds later. …
