Peabody 8, Brookline 3: Hat tricks by Sophia Post and Laura Miele powered the Tanners (2-6) to their second win of the season. Peabody led 5-0 after two and also got scoring from Hannah Travers (goal, two assists) and Courtney Smith (goal, assist).

Jillian McCormick played the first period in net and didn’t allow a goal and senior Joanna Ambeliotis played the final two periods. Ciara DiSalvo had an excellent game on the win for Peabody, and Smith made a smooth transition to a defensive position.

Beverly 1, Winthrop 0: The Panthers (5-0) handed Winthrop its first loss of the season as Ami Thompson made 21 saves to earn her second shutout. Kristen McCarthy’s power play goal 3:55 into the first period stood up as Beverly’s defensive backcheck and faceoff work from centers Livvy Konaxis and Nicole Kamens helped keep Winthrop scoreless. Konaxis and defenseman Caitlin McBride earned assists on McCarthy’s goal.

Chelmsford 8, Marblehead 4: The Lady Headers (3-3) scored three straight goals to tie it 4-4 but the Lions netted the last four of the game to come away with the win.
