Amesbury's promising season comes to sudden end


“He’s a senior getting his first varsity goal in his last varsity game,” Kuchar said of Irving. “I’m real happy for him.”

Travis Motsis scored the Indians’ second goal of the night with two and a half minutes to go, assisted by Clifford and Irving. That would be all she wrote for the season.

“I think that, after some of the wins we had this year, Amesbury is back,” Kuchar said after he and his players had a moment to reflect. “We have a real young hockey team. A lot of our kids just got a taste of varsity hockey for the first time.”

At the end of his third season as Indians head coach, Kuchar thanked each of his seniors individually and says the Amesbury system has a lot to thank them for as well.

“Our seniors that are here, they’ve seen the 1-19 season,” Kuchar said. “They helped to build the program back to where it is.

“I’m proud to be the coach here,” concluded Kuchar. “I’m proud to know that Amesbury is back on the map. The end result wasn’t what we wanted it to be. But honestly, who thought we’d be this far in our third year?”
