Canton and Natick moved on to the semifinal found of the Girls Division 2 tournament with regulation wins Saturday, while Medfield and Algonquin advanced with overtime victories.
– Canton took down top-seeded Duxbury, 3-0, at the Bog. It was the second time that the Bulldogs defeated the Dragons this season.
Allie McCabe scored the only goal Canton would need in the second period, and Tess Khoury added the insurance with a pair of third period goals, the second into an empty net. Carolyn Durand was solid in the Canton nets.
– Natick may have advanced in regulation, but the Redhawks certainly had a flair for the dramatic, scoring two goals in the final minute to pull out a 3-2 win over Archbishop Williams. Emma Tavilla scored with 52.7 seconds remaining from on the doorstep to tie it 2-2, and then scored again on a tip-in with 27 seconds left to give Natick the win.
In the first period, Colleen Quirk scored to give Natick a 1-0 lead, her 28th goal of the season setting a new school record. Karaline O’Toole then scored twice for the Bishops, the second giving ABW a 2-1 lead early in the third period. Natick will face Canton in a semifinal contest.
– Medfield captain Grenne Campbell took a pass from Cassie Donovan and fired home a shot high into the far corner to give the Warriors a 3-2 win over Malden Catholic. Lily Shaughnessy had staked Medfield to a 1-0 lead and after the Lancers tied it, Cassie McDonald made it 2-1. MC tied it again to send the game to overtime.
– In aother overtime game, #10 Algonquin/Hudson and #15 Winchester battled to 45 minutes of scoreless hockey before the T-Hawks would prevail. Mallory Farrell, who scored both goals in a Round of 16 2-0 win over Westwood, proved to be the hero once again, firing home the game-winner on a wrister from the high slot.
