The event will be held on Saturday, January 16 from 11 a.m.  to 2 p.m. at Anthony’s of Malden. The other five honorees are Marcus Darbouze, journalist;  Arthur Kahn, gemologist; Keith Knight, Jr., cartoonist; Maria Luise, Assistant to Mayor Gary Christensen and Dorothy Martin Long, community activist.

It’s a goal for the H4H hockey tournament

The morning began as a wet, drizzly, raw November day but once the various teams arrived from almost every neighborhood in Malden, the day took on a remarkable change. The grey mist turned into a parade of bright and colorful hockey jerseys worn by old-school buddies coming together to remember a friend and play some old fashion street hockey for a good cause. It was the fourth time the annual “Home for the Holidays Street Hockey Tournament” was being held and this year, according to one of the organizers Chris Rosa, what started out as a small group of pals playing some pickup games turned into a 10-team tournament that raised over $4,000. The money is going to the Malden/East Boston Youth Hockey organization and this year the event honored the memory of Joe Vaitkevicious aka ”Bones,” who just a few months ago at the age of 41, lost his life to cancer. His old hockey number “92” was painted on the boards of the rink located outside the Linden School. The rain made the […]

NCAA Spring LAX Tournaments Include Malden Athletes Pt. 1 of 2

So it’s time for the NCAA spring tournaments. For those who don’t know, NCAA stands for the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which is the athletic arm of colleges all over the country. That of course begs the question “Erik, why do I care? Malden doesn’t have a college.” While this is true, Malden does have sons and daughters playing in NCAA tournaments. First Up: Men’s Lacrosse DIII Malden has two sons playing in the NCAA Division III tournament: Dom Roberto, who was the 2010 captain of the Malden Catholic Lancers boy’s lacrosse team and a Boston Globe 2009-2010 Catholic Conference All-Scholastic, will play for his Springfield Pride when they host Western New England at home at Springfield College in Springfield MA on May 7th.  Roberto is a Senior Midfielder with 11 goals and 5 assists this season, standing 5’9” and majoring in Sports Management.

Put Me in Coach Interview with Martin Horkan

Put Me in Coach goes beyond the weekly scores of high school and youth sports in the city of Malden and focuses on the coach who drives that group, team or individual. That leader who brings out the best the player has to offer their sport. This month we sit down with Coach Martin “Marty” Horkan of the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School Boys Varsity Lacrosse program, or the MVRCS boys LAX coach for short. A little background on lacrosse for those who haven’t had an opportunity to see it. It’s been called the “fastest game on two feet.” It’s an outdoor contact sport played on a field 110 yards long and 60 yards wide. There are two teams composed of 10 players plus a goalie on the field per team. The players wear protective gear consisting of a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, and an athletic protector. There are no leg pads. The stick, or “crosse” is a metal shaft of varying lengths with a head consisting of a woven net. The 5 oz. […]
