The hockey program at Somersworth High School was nearly cut before the season. It was a self-funded team. They had never made the title game prior to this season, let alone won a title before. Yet this season they went undefeated en route to the Division III boys hockey state championship. What a terrific story.
The team recently made an appearance on the High School All-Star Sports Show. It was the final show of the 2010-2011 high school sports season, and aired live at the Loft at Strafford Farms restaurant in Dover. The other teams who appeared on the show were the Dover boys hockey team (D-II state champs) and the Somersworth boys basketball team (D-III champs).
Joining us on the show were head coach Jamie Canney and players Austin Siering, Doug Wentworth and Jaret Canney. Here's what they had to say.
