Freshmen lead North Andover into tourney

(Continued)

“She’s very aggressive,” Rogato said about Johns. “She has no problem bumping you and letting you know that she’s there. And that’s a very important skill to have on defense.”

Rogato and her young North Andover team are excited about playing in the tournament.

“I think it’s very possible that we could make one of the longest runs (in program history),” Rogato said.

“It all depends on how much heart we have. We’re a very skilled and talented team. And we do play with a lot of heart. But we’ve got to keep that up and make sure because like any team we can come out flat.”

Timberlane remains positive

Timberlane senior attacker Mike Canniff has remained positive despite a difficult season.

The Owls entered their season finale yesterday with a 0-13 record.

“We definitely lost some big guys from last year,” Canniff said.

“And we’ve had a couple of injuries this year. We’ve kept motivated and we all want to be there.”

Canniff will play club lacrosse at the University of Maine next year.

He also enjoys fishing and camping and hopes to take part in those activities during some free time in Maine.

He will be studying forestry and minoring in criminal justice.

Weeks on D

Andover senior defender Tyler Weeks has committed to play at UMass Amherst and he has been anchoring a strong Andover defense all year, coach Wayne Puglisi said.

“He’s aggressive, strong, he has a great stick and he’s the whole package,” Puglisi said. “He’s a major contributor to the whole field, moving the ball and clearing it.”

Comeau in control

The game of the week happened last Thursday when Haverhill battled back from four goals down with 2 minutes left in regulation to beat Pentucket 17-16 in a sudden death overtime.
