Friday Musings: Co-op hockey is on fire

This week’s theme is the cold.

Conor Scharlop had a highlight reel goal in Fairfield's 5-0 win over Milford co-op on Monday.

Yet Fairfield co-op hockey is white-hot.

The team is in the midst of a six-game streak it deems essential to its state playoff hopes. Fairfield, thus far, is 4-for-6. The co-op squad pitched back-to-back shutouts this week.

Conor Scharlop and Kevin Robinson each deposited highlight-reel goals. Robinson’s line of him, Matthew Larouche and Charlie Meder had a huge week, compiling 10 points in the two games.

Fairfield Prep hockey and basketball stayed hot, as well. Prep’s pucksters beat New Jersey’s No. 3 team, Don Bosco Prep, 4-2 Thursday. The Jesuits’ basketball team won by 30 against West Haven on Thursday as well.

ND-Fairfield boys basketball faced Bethel, Thursday, in what could be an SWC tournament preview. But the Wildcats won round one in Bethel, 69-61.

Warde’s basketball teams fell to Westhill. The Mustangs have a bye Friday before taking on arch-rival Ludlowe Tuesday. I’ll have a preview of those games in this space coming Monday.
