Beverly prevails in shootout victory over gritty Danvers


"You don't even have time to think in that situation," said Birarelli. "You just react."

"We all have faith in Timmy," added Albano. "That save there was just huge."

In the second overtime, a 4-on-4, 6-minute session, Taylor made the best — and last — of his 41 saves when Irving broke in all alone, but the junior netminder stonewalled Beverly's all-time leading scorer with his right pad.
