#3 Duxbury (10-0-1) racked up two more impressive wins, knocking off Canton (5-2) and Notre Dame (3-2) to officially qualify for the post-season. The Dragons are scheduled to face Marshfield (Monday) and Barnstable (Saturday). They have a Division best 67 goals for, led by Molly Duvall and Delaney Williams, each with 11.

#4 Andover (11-0-1) drilled Central Catholic 7-1 Saturday behind three goals from Emma Gilmartin. The Warriors are off until a Saturday date with Hanover (NH).
