Swampscott 4, Revere/Malden 2

The No. 8 Big Blue (10-5-6) picked up a big win in the North first round: the first for this year’s crew in their career in the playoffs. It’s Swampscott’s first postseason win since the state-championship appearance run in 2013, and they now get a crack at top-seed No. 1 Lowell (15-3-2), which beat Swampscott last year when the Big Blue was a No. 1 seed. That game is slated for Sunday at Stoneham Arena (8 p.m.). Brett Benoit led the way for Swampscott with a pair of goals, each coming in the second period as the Big Blue took a 4-1 lead. Linemates Thomas O’Keefe (goal, assist) and Stevie Santanello (goal, two assists) had fine nights, and goalie Dan Johnson got the win in net and faced less than 15 shots. Drew Olivieri, Tim Farley and Jack Poska earned assists.  Wayne Cintolo and Mike Goroshko scored for Revere/Malden.
