    Wish the Branford coach had enough class to let all his seniors finish their last high school game. Just another disappointing season for all the hard working players.

      “Hi, I’m a whiny Branford parent who decides to take my personal, petty gripes against my child’s coach out to the internet in the hopes that someone will finally listen to me” Guess what? No one cares. Guess what else? This article is about Amity and New Milford, not Branford.

        In his defense, he posted when this originally an article that included Branford, Hand and Amity wins, but we shortened it every time when seperate stories (we didn’t know were coming) were posted on the Branford and Hand games.

          Congratulations to the winners And about the Branford Coach not playing all his seniors , It is about winning and doing it with teamwork He cares about his entire team. I have 3 boys all played Hockey since they were 4 yrs old all played HS Hockey at NDWH one of my hardest working son never got the chance to play his senior year 3 yrs JV and didn’t make Varsty his senior year and could play JV so be glad and teach your son to respect his coach.

    Congrats to Johnny D he earned it tonight. Too bad Branford coaches didn’t have enough respect for senior players to let them finish their last game together. Just another disappointing finish for all the hard working PLAYERS sometimes you need to do the right thing!
