The Final Score

Reagan steps up

When coach Ryan Richards shifted Whittier from a zone to a man-to-man defense, Nick Reagan drew the assignment of covering Minuteman’s top scorer. The sophomore came through big-time, shutting down his opponent as the Wildcats prevailed, 16-5. Mike Nicholas scored a season-high eight goals in the victory.

Sachems finish strong

Pentucket lost its first two boys tennis matches then saw its second doubles team fall behind 3-0 in the third and deciding set. Both times the Sachems rebounded as Logan Sherwood and Will Kopaciewicz fought back for a 6-4 final-set victory to knock off Newburyport, 3-2.

Hornets make playoffs

With its final six lacrosse games on the road, North Reading took advantage of an early Senior Night to clinch a postseason berth, defeating Pentucket, 12-5. Mike O’Brien led the way for the Hornets with four goals and three assists.

Yaratz dominant

Josh Yaratz dominated on the mound with a two-hit shutout, striking out eight as Sanborn scraped out a 3-0 win over Hollis-Brookline.

Now at 68 goals

Kristy Robertson scored eight more goals, giving her 68 for the year, as Haverhill whipped Tewksbury 18-7. She also added four assists.

Ready for rematch

In a tuneup for tomorrow’s baseball rematch against Goffstown — the only team to defeat Windham so far — the Jaguars humbled Milford, 14-4. Junior Josh Gallagher, a first-year varsity player, rapped a pair of two-run doubles and added a run-scoring single while captain Matt Carbonello used three hits to drive in four runs.

What a debut!

In her first varsity at-bat, Salem freshman Holly Peterson stroked a two-run single with two outs in the sixth for what proved to be the winning runs in a 7-4 victory over Londonderry.

Freshman fantastic

Andover freshman Owen Plourde battled Lawrence standout Chen Chen for well over two hours before rallying back for a brutal 2-6, 7-5, 12-10 win at No. 1 singles to help the Golden Warriors best the Lancers 5-0.
