Mansfield defeats the Warriors 3-0.
The Mansfield boys ice hockey team beat Foxborough on Saturday 3-0. While the score was a bit lopsided in Mansfield’s favor, it did not reflect the entirety of the game. Offensively, Mansfield dominated the ice. They had a total of 33 shots on goal, out shooting Foxborough by 26. They also kept the puck primarily on the Warrior’s side of play, not giving Foxborough many chances to shoot. "I got a chance to play everybody," Mansfield head coach Rick Anastos said. "That was what I had hoped to accomplish. Everybody goes to practice and they work hard. This was their oppertunity to play and they played." Mansfield did however give Foxborough two powerplays in the first and second periods, but did not allow any scoring. "We just got to keep …

MHS in the process of self evaluation.
Mansfield High School is in the process of readying for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges evaluation for accreditation evaluation. "Colleges may not accept your students [if the school is not accredited]," MHS Principal Michael Connolly said. "I'm putting it very simple terms, but that means a lot.

Mansfield is currently already accreditated, but the accreditation goes through a 10 year cycle, during which both the NEASC and accreditated schools update and refine their …

Mansfield beats Foxboro with a 1-0 win after scoring on a 5 minute power play.
Foxborough coach Melissa Bordieri is going to have to wait at least a few more days for win number 100. A tight game between two rivals ended in one of the rarest ways as far as field hockey goes. Scoring on a late power play, the Hornets broke a scoreless tie to walk away with a 1-0 win. The lone goal was not without controversy. After Katie Ennis did not give Mansfield seven yards on a free hit, the official penalized Ennis with a yellow card and a 5-minute penalty to give the Hornets a power play with 8:24 left in the game. “That hurt us no doubt,” said Bordieri The harsh penalty, which was given after Ennis received a green card as a warning for the same infraction in the first half, was seen as a very strict ruling. “It seemed like …
