While the Catholic Conference and private schools have recently had both the Pete Frates Winter Classic and Catholic Conference showcase of late, it’s time for the public schools to get the spotlight.
On Sunday, Jan. 29, the 2023 Ed Burns Classic, also known as the Coffee Pot, begins as 16 public schools battle it out. The semifinals were played Feb. 5 and the final will be on Feb. 12.
The 16 teams are separated into two divisions: the Brinn Division and the Doherty Division.
Last year’s Ed Burns Classic championship game was an actual classic. Marshfield and Hingham ended regulation in a 5-5 tie. In overtime, Marshfield scored to win the title.
