Pingree 1, Lexington Chrisitan Academy 0: Sophomore Char Esty made a solo run and scored the game’s only game with two minutes remaining to lift the Highlanders (5-0). Pingree’s lone league loss a year ago came to LCA, the defending Eastern Independent League champs, but this year Pingree broke through thanks in part to strong play from the backline of June Kiely, Molly Smith and Abby Dirks.
Waring 8, Brimmer & May 0: Freshman Amanda Adams and senior Ayla Rauhala each scored three goals to help Waring remain unbeaten on the season at 7-0. Keeper Holland Stam made five saves to earn her sixth shutout.
North Shore Tech/Essex Aggie 2, Chelsea 0: Freshman Hailey Page had a goal and an assist and Sarah Powers also scored to help the Hawks move to 6-2-1. Keely Gallagher had an assist and a strong overall game, sweeper Ava Swiniarski played outstanding defense and keeper Sarah Cantwell earned her fifth shutout.
Bishop Fenwick 8, Matignon 0: Abbey Rocker scored twice for the Crusaders (5-4-1) while Colleen Corcoran, Jackie Edgett, Nicole Cambria, Cait Parrott, Mary Difilippo, and Bridget Corcoran each scored once. Emily Charette and Jenny Nasser had two assists apiece to help the Crusaders to victory.
St. John’s Prep 3, Malden Catholic 0: Mike Lanza had a goal and an assist and Greg French and Matt Clilton also scored as the Eagles (8-0-1 overall) stayed perfect in league play at 5-0. Paul Magazzu added two assist and keepers Bobby Holmes and Jared Costa split the shutout for St. John’s.
Pingree 2, Lexington Christian 1: Katie Shreenan scored a pair of goals, each rebounds off the goalie’s pads, including the winning goal in the second half. The entire defense played well for the Highlanders (5-1 in EIL play) and Parker Beatrice stood out.
Ipswich 2, Saugus 1: The resilient Tigers had the apparent winning goal disallowed with two minute to go and then scored the winner in the last minute as Maddi Hill struck assisted by Meghan Lindahl (who scored Ipswich’s first goal).
