Kent wins NEPSAC hockey tournament


CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Kent School boys hockey reached glory March 3.

Seeded fifth in the New England Prep School Athletic Conference (NEPSAC) Martin/Earl Large Tournament, Kent overcame the odds and took home the trophy.

The championship game against Dexter Southfield School was played at Harvard’s Bright Landry Hockey Center March 3. In a game that was tied nearly the entire match, Kent scored the winning goal with just 47 seconds remaining to claim a 3-2 victory. 

Kent’s star senior Gio DiGiulian scored twice, including the game-winner. Owen Mahar scored as well for the Lions. 

Goalie Aiden Hopewell was a brick wall in the net and kept Kent in the game despite a relentless barrage of shots-on-goal for Dexter. 

Kent’s tournament run began with a 5-1 win over Deerfield Academy on the road. The Lions then had home court advantage in the second round against Berkshire School. Kent defeated Berkshire 5-4.

Kent last won the NEPSAC title in 2019.
