The Final Score

Stout defense

Especially in an influential first half, Michaela Mello and Danielle Koskran provided quality defense as North Andover held off Central Catholic in lacrosse, 10-6. The Knights shackled the Raiders to just a pair of goals in the first half, taking a four-goal lead that stood up.

Sachems Frei(ermuth) Amesbury

Tim Freiermuth won the shot put (45-3) and discus (141-0) to help lead Pentucket to a 98-47 win over Amesbury.

Picture perfect

Cam Hastings won the pole vault, 200 and ran the anchor of the 4x100 relay as North Reading beat Lynnfield 100-45 to finish the dual meet season 8-0 and take home the Cape Ann League team title for the first time in school history, according to coach Ryan Spinney.

Winning comeback

The second doubles team of Jose Matos and Hector Reynoso regrouped in the second set, using aggressive net play and hustle to take a three-set victory, the deciding point for Lawrence in a 3-2 win over Haverhill.

Antczak ends it

Central Catholic pitcher Olivia Antczak wasn’t at the top of her game offensively or defensively, but she delivered in the clutch with a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the ninth for an 8-7 win over Methuen. Leslie Moore had a solo homer, three hits and three RBIs for the Raiders and Madison Borrelli was 3 for 4 and scored twice. Kat LeFebre had a grand slam for the Rangers.

Terrific Thompson

Freshman Erin Thompson was 5 for 5, including a double and triple, and played outstanding defense as Sanborn had 18 hits in an 11-6 victory over St. Thomas.

Hitting the cycle

Greater Lawrence freshman Pamela Castro hit for the cycle and scored four runs as Greater Lawrence outlasted Lawrence 15-12.

Hit squad returns

After a couple of strong efforts but minimal offense in recent games, John Parsons’ bases-loaded double in the first inning signalled a positive change for Central Catholic in a 9-0 whitewashing of Methuen. Brady Abraham cracked a solo homer in the fifth inning and leadoff hitter Anthony Licari kickstarted the attack by getting on base three times.
