Final score

Salem wins the war

Nashua South ran off 31 points in the third quarter, but Salem girls basketball had already built a 25-point halftime lead en route to a comfortable 77-64 victory. Juniors Emily Hickey (20 points) and Brenna Blakslee (19 points) powered the Blue Devil offense in the win.

Agganis’ career high not enough

Senior Marisa Agganis netted a career-high 26 points but Georgetown girls basketball lost 53-48 to Hamilton-Wenham.

The Royals were leading entering the fourth, but then were outscored 11-0 in the final period.

Productive point guard

Point guard Pam Coufos recorded 10 points, seven rebounds, nine steals and six assists as North Andover girls basketball bashed Dracut 55-27.

Defensive trio

Pesky defense from Courtney Zacharias, Nicole Carroll and Molly Condon proved to be troublesome for Haverhill as Methuen rolled to a 59-25 victory in girls basketball. The trio also combined for 17 points while the Hillies were led by Molly Hoopes (11 points, 18 rebounds).

Doubling up

Justin Reyes netted 20 points and added 16 rebounds to lead Whittier boys basketball 61-45 over Greater Lawrence.

Ryan Grant also had a double-double, scoring 10 and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Andrew Wells poured in seven 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 22 points.

Keith’s on the case

Stepping up against Division 1 Bishop Fenwick, Division 2 North Reading boys hockey took home its third win in a row, 4-1. Goalie Keith Linnane did a great job handling Fenwick’s offensive pressure, turning aside 21 shots.

Big night for DeBaldo, Vaiknoras

Pelham almost saw a big lead disappear in the fourth quarter, but Becca DeBaldo (12 points) made a couple of big defensive stops down low with 15 seconds left to hold off St. Thomas Aquinas for a 53-51 victory in girls basketball.

Pelham boys basketball was down by 10 points in the second half but Jake Vaiknoras netted 16 of his 26 points in the second half to lead Pythons 56-54 over St. Thomas Aquinas, which missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
