Final Score: Andover stuns No. 1 Arlington Catholic

Andover topples No. 1 AC

Andover stunned Arlington Catholic, the top-ranked team in the ESPNBoston statewide poll, 2-1. With the score deadlocked at 1-1, Veronica Alois’ unassisted goal in the third period won it for the Golden Warriors (4-1). Brianna Deloury scored in the first period. Meagan Johnson (22 saves) stymied the potent Cougar attack.

Busy keeper

Andover defensemen Jack Wilkie and Andrew Soucy made the all-tourney team. They and goalie Pat Schena (35 saves) starred in a 4-0 loss yesterday to powerhouse Arlington Catholic.

Hogan’s Heroes

Pentucket managed to cut a 17-point lead down to two in the final minute, but Derek Hogan went 4 for 4 from the charity stripe in the final 12 seconds to seal the victory for North Reading. Colby Maiola led the way for the Hornets with a season-high 18 points

.

Sachem Power

Kelsi McNamara netted a season-high 22 points and McKenna Kilian had eight points and 10 rebounds as Pentucket downed North Reading 52-38.

On the Ball

Cody Ball made three of Londonderry’s nine 3-pointers and tallied 21 points as the Lancers held off Westford 51-46. Londonderry did a nice job spreading the ball around, with six different players hitting from beyond the arc.
