Player of the Week - Liam Darcy

A couple weeks shy of his 16th birthday, defenseman Liam Darcy put up some big numbers for Berwick Academy (Maine) in the New England Prep Hockey League. On Wednesday, the Berwick Bulldogs (11W-10L-1T) travelled to Brookline, MA to battle Dexter Academy (18W-1L-5T) - the 5th-ranked team in the U.S. Hockey Report Prep Poll. Darcy, a 5'11", 170 lbs. sophomore, tied the game at 1-1 on a power play goal. It was his 4th goal of the season. In a see-saw contest, Berwick lost 4-5 on a Dexter goal midway through the third period.

Two days later, Berwick stormed past Worcester Academy 14-1 lead by Liam Darcy's hat trick, which included the game-winning goal. With 7 goals and 14 assists, Darcy is the leading scorer among defensemen on the Berwick squad. His 21 points in 22 games places him in a tie for 10th in scoring among all defensemen in the New England Prep League.

With a record of 3 points over .500, Berwick Academy is in the fight for a playoff berth in the New England Prep Small School Tournament. Their three remaining games are home against Pingree on Wednesday and on the road against Governor's on Friday and the big finale against 10th-ranked Cushing Academy on Saturday. Liam Darcy is committed to UNH for either 2015 or 2016. Wildcat fans interested in seeing him play can make the 11-mile drive from the Whittemore Center up Route 108 to South Berwick.
