QUITE THE PUCK STOPPER!  Stoughton High varsity hockey team goaltender P.J. Sheehan must be shell-shocked by now.  He made 37 saves on February 18 in a Hockomock Crossover loss to North Attleboro. 

On February 22, he made 48 saves against Dennis-Yarmouth in the opener of the Bourne Tournament.  Then, the next day, he stopped 31 more against Bourne, and was named to the All-Tournament team. 

Sheehan made nearly 700 saves in 20 games this season, including a whopping 62 against Oliver Ames in January.

And, as Coach Dan Mark says, "He's only a sophomore!"

CONGRATULATIONS to John Sawyer, who graduated from Porter and Chester Institute from their Automotive Technology program. That should come in handy, as his dad is “Big” John Sawyer, owner of Classic Limousines of New England, a Stoughton company.  Prom season is just around the corner!
