Alumni Hockey Game 2011: In Memory of Brendan Burke ’06

Leave a comment

This year’s Alumni Hockey Game was played at the Foxboro Sports Center last Saturday in Memory of Brendan Burke ’06 who tragically passed away in 2010. More than 40 alumni came out for the event, which began with a pregame ceremony with Brendan’s family.

The gold team defeated the blue squad in a thrilling, energetic contest that featured breakaways, highlight-reel saves, and an interesting “powerplay” goal in the game’s final seconds.

Following the action, there was a post-game gathering with pizza and refreshments. Many stayed to watch the Varsity hockey game. Alumni, coaches, family and friends then visited Waxy O’Connor’s in Foxboro for a post game reception.
