Medford came into the came with a 12-5-3 record as the bracket's No. 6 seed while Acton-Boxborough was the No. 11 team in the tournament following a 10-6-4 regular season.

The seedings held true as Medford skated to a 4-2 victory on Wednesday night thanks to third period goals from Paul Zizzo and Sean Allen. Those tallies broke a 2-2 tie late in the game and helped Medford advance.
