 A late season loss to Andover hurt Central Catholic's Super 8 chances but the Raiders may have thrust themselves back in the mix by upsetting No. 4 Weymouth last night.

Trailing 3-2 after two periods, the Raiders owned the final period en route to a 6-3 win. The loss was just the second of the season for the Wildcats (16-2-2).

"The tourney started for us tonight and we really answered the call," said Raiders coach Mike Jankowski, whose team improved to 16-5-1. "It gives us a great opportunity for some (Super 8) consideration. We compete with the best. You have to play those teams. "

 Tommy Evangelista and Ryan Daigle each scored twice, with Evangelista's second an empty-netter. Alex Lester and Mike Kelleher (2 assists) also scored. Nick Leonard, who recently went over 100 career points, shows no signs of slowing down. He added three assists.

Kyle Williams stopped 22 Wildcat shots.

Of the third period dominance, Jankowski said, "We showed a lot of character and resiliency. We played some great hockey. Kyle made some nice stops and it gave us some momentum."

The Super 8 and play-in game pairings will be decided on Saturday. In the previous four seasons, Central has made the Super 8 twice and the play-in round on another occasion.
