– No. 5 Arlington fortified its Division 1A resume with Sunday’s 3-0 win against No. 8 Hingham in the Catherine Malatesta Scholarship Game played at Northeastern University’s Matthews Arena. Jack Pinard had the shutout. John Pigott scored the game-winner in the first period, Sean Tomaszewski created separation early in the third and Kevin Ouellette had an empty-netter.

– Duxbury celebrated Senior Night in a big way, pumping in four first-period goals in a 7-0 whitewash of Barnstable. Fittingly, senior Jack Demio notched a hat trick while staking the Green Dragons to a quick 2-0 lead.

 – Jared Grier’s hat trick included a shorthanded strike as No. 18 Xaverian knocked off Westford Academy, 5-1. Egor Boraschev and Tommy Dugan both had a power play goal and assist each for the Hawks.
