Playoffs Update!



Our League season looks to conclude on February 11th with the Playoffs commencing on February 24th. The top four teams in each division will make the playoffs with the 1 seed playing the 4 seed and the 2 seed playing the 3 seed, winners to go to the championship, with all series are best of 3. Tiebreakers for seeding will be as follows and in this order 1. Head to head, 2. Point Differential, 3. Points Allowed, 4. Points Scored.

For the Pee Wee Division - Acushnet Federal Credit Union has locked up the top spot, with VFW locking up the number 2 seed. Bristol Dental has secured the 3 seed and the 4 seed is still up for grabs with Shawmut Auto, Elf's Landscaping and Acushnet Firefighters all in the mix.

In the hotly contested Junior Division - Acushnet Company, The Flower House and Dunkin Donuts have all qualified for the playoffs and locked up the top three seeds, although where they will fall is still up for grabs and anyone's guess. Mass Auto, Lazzaro Construction, and Lions Club are battling it out for the 4th and final spot, although Lions Club will need a little help and effectively run the table in order to qualify.

  For the Senior Division - The Joey Jason fund has a stranglehold on the top spot with a perfect record, while Jason's Variety has secured the number 2 spot. The 3rd and the 4th seeds are still up for grabs with Reebok Classic and DW White holding the current edge, with a loss by Tilecraft effectively eliminating them from contention.

4th and 5th graders compete in the Freetown / Lakeville tournament



The Acushnet 4th and 5th grade boys travel teams recently wrapped up their participation in the Freetown / Lakeville tournament by going a combined 5 and 1 on the weekend.  

The Acushnet 4th graders posted a record of 3 wins and no loses in the Freetown/Lakeville Tournament.  In game one, Acushnet defeated Bridgewater 15 to 13.  A combination of solid defense and timely scoring helped Acushnet edge out Bridgewater for its first win of the season.  In game two, after being ahead by only 2 points heading into the second half,  a late offensive run helped Acushnet outlast Freetown/Lakeville with a hard fought 27 to 17 victory.  In game three, Acushnet beat a pesky Raynham team 23 to 18.  After a tight first half, Acushnet came out in the second and played strong team defense holding Raynham to only one second half point. 

In their 1st game the Acushnet 5th Graders defeated Raynhan 29 to 23, the Acushnet offense was paced by Ryan Deslauriers Logan Berube and Brady Coppa .  Jason Motta,  Aidan Milton and Alex DeAlmeida helped to round out the team effort on the defensive side of the ball.  In the 5th Graders 2nd contest they defeated a tough Bridgewater team 32 to 21, the Acushnet scoring was led by Logan Berube , Ryan Deslauriers and Reece Antunes.  Nathan Spellman and Ben Davignon came up big with key plays during a tight contest.  In their final game the 5th graders squared off with the other undefeated team in Freetown/Lakeville.  Acushnet lost a nail biter 35 to 33 with Logan Berube and Ryan Deslauriers leading the scoring.  Colby Medeiros provided the spark off the bench coming up big with a few defensive stops and key rebounds.   

Congratulations to all the boys for an impressive showing in the Freetown Lakeville tournament.
