The Final Score

Deloury grand again

Andrew Deloury broke open a close game with a grand slam as part of a six-run sixth inning in Andover’s 14-9 win over North Andover. It came exactly one week after Deloury’s slam against Methuen.

Much closer than shutout

The final score had North Andover girls tennis handing Chelmsford its first loss, 5-0, but the match was far from cut and dried as the shutout score shows. Four of the five matches went to three sets and two of those matches involved tiebreakers.

11 goals too little

Kristy Robertson fired in 11 goals for Haverhill, but it wasn’t quite enough as the Hillies fell to Methuen in a scorefest, 22-21. Ktisti Coutu scored seven goals for Methuen (5-1).

Twin killing

Twin brothers Anibal Henriquez and Jeyson Henriquez each notched 11 kills and a pair of Christians, Christian Mayi and Christian Tavares, each had seven blocks as Lawrence rallied from a two-game deficit to beat Chelmsford 27-29, 20-25, 25-21, 25-18, 15-13.

Grundy unbeatable

Zach Grundy turned in 16 saves and allowed just a single goal as Haverhill bested Methuen 8-1. Matt Serra, Austin Phillips and John Papachriston each scored twice for the Hillies.

Sudden death

In a battle of once-beaten girls lacrosse teams, Pinkerton won a barnburner from North Andover in sudden death, 14-13. Kennedy Daziel, Erin Coutts, Maggie McCarthy and Amanda Szostak all had hat tricks for the Astros. For the Knights Audrey Samuelman returned from a two-week absence with four goals and two assists and Leah Chittick added four goals.

Combined effort

Windham defeated Lebanon 6-0 in softball as Rachel Vafides and Jaime Cleasby combined for 13 strikeouts in the shutout. Michaela Hatem had three hits for the Jaguars (7-2).

First for freshman

Shaking off Chelsea’s initial offensive charge, freshman Olivia Michaud earned her first varsity win as an offense led by sophomore Kasandra Ayala (two-run homer) and senior Desiray Caracoglia (double, two RBIs) delivered her and Greater Lawrence a 14-7 triumph.
