If things work as planned for Bourdeau and the Clippers this year, far greater accomplishments will be had than just a league title.
“We want to take the program to where it’s never been before,” Bourdeau said. “We have all the guys to do it. We have an amazing goalie, great defenders and a strong offense. We would love to get to the state championship game and bring the school to where it’s never been before.”
Newburyport has eight games remaining on the regular season schedule, beginning with Friday’s rivalry meeting with Triton. While the Vikings are just .500 on the year, the Clippers know that the school from the town next door can never be taken lightly.
“Friday is a huge game against Triton,” Bourdeau said. “They always give us their best and they have been rolling as well and have a winning streak of their own built up. They have a few kids that can score so we are looking forward to them before anything else. We aren’t going to overlook any team.”
The Vikings have won five of their previous seven games, each by at least five points. The two teams will collide on Friday at 4 p.m. at Newburyport.
