The Panthers are looking to bounce back after yesterday’s 4-1 loss to Chelmsford snapped their school and area record 18-game unbeaten streak to start the season.
“We just didn’t have the jump. We’ll throw it out the window and we’ll be back,” said Beverly coach :Brian Seabury:. “We were a little sloppy so we’ll get back to basics.”
Senior :Livvy Konaxis: recently became the program’s all-time leading scorer, hiking her career total to 114 to pass older sister Rachel, who had 110 in just three seasons. Livvy’s 43 points this season are a Beverly single-season record.
Regardless of what happens today, Beverly looks like it will earn the No. 2 seed in the Division 1 girls state tourmnament, which should be worth at least two homes game should they advance.
“In hindsight, (the Chelmsford loss) might not be so bad. We got it out of the way. It is hard to run the table,” said Seabury.
If you thought you hit the jackpot after Peabody’s 8-6 loss to Everett last week, it was probably because eight of the 14 goals in the game were scored by players wearing No. 7. Peabody’s No. 7, Sophia Post, scored four goals and had an assist, and Everett’s Gabrielle Ramuno added four of her own.
The Tanners, who finisehd the season 5-13, trailed the Crimson Tide 4-0 before making a run and nearly stealing the game. :Kaydee Purcell:, :Ciara DiSalvo: and :Waverly Cohen :had excellent seasons for improving Peabody.
Post’s 19 goals rank second on Peabody’s all-time single season list and :Courtney Smith: had 17 goals of her own. The duo tied for the team lead with 27 points each.
Congratulations to Masconomet goalie :Alex Jones:, who was named GEMIHL NEC/CAL Division MVP. Jones had six of her 21 shutouts this season and had arguably her best game in a 37-save, 1-1 tie against Beverly.
