Peabody senior Victoria Digiacomo scored two goals in the Tanners’ 6-0 win over Lynn Classical, collecting the 100th and 101st points of her four-year varsity career.

Digiacomo is the sixth member of the 100-point club for Peabody girls soccer, joining teammate

Hayley Dowd, older sister Erika, Emily and Alyssa Manoogian and Justine Hartigan.

“I’ve been extremely fortunate to coach a lot of great athletes and soccer players and Victoria’s right up there,” said Peabody coach

Dennis Desroches. “She’s been so consistent throughout her four years and it’s been a pleasure to watch her play and coach her.”

Dowd, playing her first game of the season, scored three goals in yesterday’s win as the Tanners improved to 3-0. Madison Doherty also scored and Desroches was impressed with Classical’s aggressive approach and the play of his own defenders Cayla Bucci and Kara Digiacomo.
