The Panthers are searching for their first North title against the unbeaten Raiders (15-0-4). The last time Beverly was in the North final was Simpson’s sophomore year as a player 15 years ago, when they fell to Winchester.
“I remember the loss. It was at Bertram Field (in Salem). That was a great season with a great coach and a great group of girls,” said Simpson.
“We have a great group of girls here, too. They deserve this.”
