Parents behaving badly...

Blocker will probably appreciate this:


In a head-shaking display of parental misconduct, the father of a Winthrop High School hockey player shined a laser pointer on the ice at a girls playoff game Wednesday night, in a bizarre attempt to distract players on the opposing team, state hockey officials and fans say.

Kurt Carter, Medway-Ashland’s coach, said the light bothered his goaltender in the minutes before Winthrop scored the tying goal.

“After they scored, our defensemen came over to tell me that our goaltender was complaining that bright lights were flashing in her eyes,’’ Carter said. “The whole thing is absolutely crazy.’’

Pam O’Sullivan, the mother of a Medway-Ashland player who attended the game, said the quarter-sized beam of light bounced quickly around the goal area and often came to rest right on the goalie’s mask.

“You could see the green flickering off the metal of her mask,’’ she said. “After we scored that first goal it really intensified. It was moving all over.’’
