With the sting of losing in the previous years 2017-2018 Championship game in mind, this years 2018-2019 Varsity Boys team is doubling their efforts. With 9 seniors and good depth, Marty Myers is looking to return to the title game, but competition is shaping up, and familiar teams are showing up in the mix. 

Forward past tryouts, a pre-season jamboree, and a close game with Malden Catholic, Bedford looked ready, and by all indications like winning the Christmas tournament over familiar foes like Trinity(6-0), Concord(5-1) and Hanover(5-3), and beating Goffstown(4-3) in the Finals. The regular season was highly contested, with more parity than ever before.  Bedford finished 3rd behind Concord who had a equivalent Win/Loss/Tie record, but playing Div 2 Massachusetts Marblehead and winning, only netted 3 points instead of 4. It was no doubt that losong to Pinkerton, St. Thomas and most of all Trinity would be forefront in their minds during State Finals.

Bedford's first test during Quarter Finals against Exeter proved to be a game for the ages.  At a packed Sullivan Arena, Bedford battled for 5 periods to win 3-2 on a last second faceoff buzzer beater on a hattrick completing goal from Jack Sylvain, assisted by Parker Roberto.

Semi-Final play would be no different with second seed Concord.  The Concord/Bedford rivalry is long known, with Bedford besting Concord 7-0 in 2016 finals and many other games. At a packed JFK Colliseum, Owen Roberto, with the help of linemates Alex Lobdell and Will Scott, burried one goal in the second, and the game winner in overtime to push Bedford into it's 8th Championship appearence in its 10 years of existence.

With a history of 5 rings, Bedford, like this years 2019 Patriots Squad was on the hunt for it's 6th ring. A hunt along a path would lead through Trinity, who beat 2nd seed Hanover and 8th seed Salem on their 8 game win streak to get to the Finals.  Bedford came to play with a vengeance, especially Parker Roberto who netted a hat-trick in the 7-0 rout over the Pioneers to claim it's 6th title. Goals like the game opening tip by Quinlan Kerr, and shots by Alex Lobdell, Cam Wasylak and Jack Sylvain rounded out the one sided assault.  Shea Guimont having seen 17 quality shots and at least 3 highlight reel saves was solid in net, but Trinity could not keep up with Bedfords 42 shots game pace and drive.
