Peabody 1, Beverly 0: The Tanners got a second half goal from All-Conference selection Ben Manoogian, his 15th of the season, to clinch the Northeastern Conference championship at 11-0-4. C.J. Almonti and Joao Correia picked up assists as Rob Smith (9 saves) pitched his ninth shutout of the season for Peabody (12-1-5 overall).

For Beverly (10-8-1), junior midfielder Savio Polini had his best game of the year and produced several strong offensive opportunities during the contest. Ryan Santo, a senior center midfielder, also had an excellent game for the Orange-and-Black.

Cardinal Spellman 2, Bishop Fenwick 1: Junior Jim Brophy’s goal with 15 minutes left in the first half tied things up for Fenwick (8-8-5) before the hosts netted the game-winning goal midway through the second half. The assist on Brophy’s tally went to Istimy Arapi.

Masconomet 3, Hamilton-Wenham 2: Senior Edison Forbes’ goal with just a minute-and-a-half remaining capped a scoring binge over the game’s final six minutes and send the Chieftains (17-1-1) to yet another win. Adam Grammer’s goal with six minutes to go gave Masco a 2-1 lead before Hamilton-Wenham tied it on a penalty kick with four minutes remaining. That’s when Forbes buried his shot for the win. Regan Charie also scored while center back Kevin Gilbert and Danny Raphael also played well for the winners, who got three saves from goalkeeper Willie Stewart.

The Generals (8-4-5) got two tallies from senior captain Russell Grigorian, with Drew Gallant assisting on the first.
