North Shore Tech/Essex Aggie 1, Greater Lowell 1: Keeper Sarah Cantwell made nine saves in a tremendous effort as the Hawks (6-2-4) kept pace in the Commonwealth Conference with a draw. Keely Gallagher had North Shore’s goal, assisted by Stefany Campbell, and sweeper Ava Swiniarski also played well.


Manchester Essex 5, Lynnfield 3: Brittany Smith had three goals to help the Hornets (11-0-2) remain unbeaten. Paige Zaval also notched a pair of goals for Manchester.

Hamilton-Wenham 1, Triton 0: Taylor Ward lifted the Generals (4-8-1) when she scored on a stroke with 12 minutes to play. Sophomore mid Morgan Tilson and MacKenzie Plante played well for Hamilton and Maddie Werner did a fantastic job in net while earning the shutout.

Notre Dame 1, Bishop Fenwick 0: Defender Rachel Connolly and mid Caroline Crawford has strong games for Fenwick (7-5), which fell victim to a second half Notre Dame goal and couldn’t find the net to draw even.
