“We were a little slow in the beginning, but picked up speed in the second half” said veteran head coach Barb Damon. “The girls made the adjustments based on what they saw and it was great for them to get the win.”

The Falcons await their fate and will play the winner of the Acton-Boxboro/Central Catholic game on Monday.
