Division 2’s last two undefeated teams in Massachusetts Girls HS hockey met Saturday when Duxbury (14-0-1) travelled to the Canton Sportsplex to take on Archbishop Williams (11-0-1) as the division’s two top teams squared off.

And it would be Duxbury that would take the upper hand. Scoring a goal in each period, the Dragons came away with a 4-1 win.

Duxbury and D1 Winthrop are the lone two girls teams that have yet to lose.

Sophomore Megan Carney scored two goals, including the game-winner in the second period, while Maddie Greenwood had the other two goals. She opened the scoring in the first period and then sealed it with a shorthanded empty net goal with just over a minute to play.

Hear what Meghan Carney had to say after the win:

The Bishops came out strong, but Duxbury held, and then controlled most of the rest of the period. Late in the frame, Greenwood moved out from the right faceoff circle and fired a high shot that beat ABW goalie Evelyn Lacey.

Archbishop Williams goalie Evelyn Lacey looks for shot as Duxbury’s Maeve Gallagher screens in front. Dragons won the showdown, 4-1.

During a second period power play, Carney expanded Duxbury’s lead to 2-0 when she tapped home a loose puck in front.

Archbishop Williams got some life early in the third on a goal by Caroline Batchelder off a nice individual move.

But Carney would squelch any chance of a comeback, one-timing a shot from the top of the crease off a pass from behind the net by Martine Van Arum.

Late in the third period, the Bishops got a power play and pulled Lacey for a sixth attacker, but the Dragons got the puck out of their zone and Greenwood slide the puck into the emtpy net for the 4-1 final.
