They don’t have their own rink.
They’ve added a couple of players from Weston and Shelton.
But the Staples co-op boys ice hockey team is headed to the state finals.
The team — almost all of whom are legit Westporters, and who wear a big “S” on their jerseys — won a wild, sudden-death overtime game Tuesday night, 6-5 over Woodstock Academy.
That put them in the Division III championship of the Big Dance — er, the Big Skate — on Saturday. The puck drops at 10 a.m., at Yale’s Ingalls Rink (aka The Whale).
As they’ve made their march to the title game — playing at rinks far from home — the Wreckers have picked up a large corps of enthusiastic fans.
They’ll be out in force Saturday morning. Let’s hope they’re joined by plenty of other Westporters.
If you’ve never seen a high school hockey game, you’re in for a treat.
And — hopefully — a championship.
