Saturday’s storm wiped out all but a handful of weekend games:
On Sunday, Austin Prep turned back determined St. John’s of Shrewsbury, 5-2. Two late goals by Richard Lyons sealed it after SJS closed to within one on third-period strikes from Justin Storer and Nick Palermo. J.J. Harding also had two goals for AP and Dylan Regan finished with 26 saves.
On Sunday, all the scoring occurred in the first period of Waltham’s 3-1 win against Acton-Boxboro in MVC/DCL One play. Adam Becker netted the GWG for the Hawks. Andrew Miller and Steven Giardina also scored and Chris Egan had two assists.
On Saturday, junior Trevor Crawford’s goal midway through the third period earned Pope Francis a 3-3 tie with Rhode Island power Bishop Hendricken. Sophomore Makem Demers and junior Jacob King had power play goals for the Cardinals and senior Cam Peritz had two assists.
On Saturday, Newburyport spotted Lynnfield a 2-0 lead in the first four minutes but forged a 2-2 tie on third-period goals from senior Paul Federico and junior Matt Babcock.
