Girls Soccer:Triton @ Newburyport
 
For the second time this season Newburyport defeated Triton in a close game. Following a 2-1 win in September, the Clippers claimed a 1-0 victory over the visiting Vikings yesterday. Abbie Bresnahan scored her 11th goal of the season in the 58th minute on a penalty kick.

Despite the outcome, Triton coach Mike Weisberg felt his team played well enough to win, with advantages in shots, corners, and time of possession. He credited the play of his captains Teresa Benoit and Cara Orlandi, along with Lily Dow, Alex Kennedy, Skyler Accomando, RyleeMcKay Culverwell, and Meredith Wilcox. Christine Ciccone made 4 saves in net for the Vikings.

Both teams are headed for the state tournament, so a third meeting between these two is a possibility. If they end up on opposite sides of the bracket, it could even be for the North title.

Girls Soccer:North Reading @ Hamilton-Wenham
 
The Hornets and the Generals fought another tough battle on Monday. Earlier in the season the two teams played to a scoreless tie. Yesterday, Hamilton-Wenham freshman Erin O'Shea scored her first varsity goal at the 30-minute mark, and it would prove to be the game winner as the Generals took the match, 1-0. O'Shea was assisted by Izzy Berthoud.

Playing well for the Generals at midfield was Saskia Leonard, whose decisions on the field allowed for the home team to create great scoring opportunities. On the back field, Grace Monahan had a great game tracking and controlling the speed of the visiting team.

North Reading will complete their regular season today at home against Pentucket, while Hamilton-Wenham travels to Pentucket on Wednesday. Both the Generals and the Hornets have qualified for the state tournament.

Golf:
 
The big story of the 2014 golf season was Amesbury's undefeated run through the league, compiling an 11-0 record to claim the Kinney Division crown and the best record for the entire league. The Indians finished the regular season a perfect 15-0 overall, and they even played a part in determining who would win the Baker Division title. On the final day of the season Amesbury hosted Hamilton-Wenham, who came into the match with an 8-2 record and a one-game lead over Triton in the loss column. A win would give the Generals the outright title, however Amesbury would win the day, dropping H-W into a tie with the Vikings.

The Cape Ann League Open was held on October 16th at Far Corner Golf Course in Boxford. Pentucket's Krystal Knight became the first female golfer to win the event, and she was also selected as the Kinney Division Player of the Year. Other First Team All-Stars, based on their finishes at the Open, were Ryan Delaney from North Reading, John Seward (Triton), Tyler Stansbury (N.R.), Mike Waisnor (Lynnfield), Brock Reardon (Masconomet), Nick Eliopoulos (Lynf), Kyle Nelson (Georgetown), Ben Bichet (M-E), and Paddy Flahardy (Amesbury.) Bichet was named the Baker Division Player of the Year.

Hamilton-Wenham's Billy Corley and Amesbury's George Dodier were named Coaches of the Year for the Kinney and Baker Divisions, respectively. North Reading and Pentucket shared the Sportmanship Award for the Kinney Division, while Ipswich earned the award for the Baker.

Six of the twelve Cape Ann League teams qualified for the state tournament this fall, with a seventh falling just short. Amesbury, Hamilton-Wenham, and Triton were joined by Lynnfield, Manchester-Essex, and North Reading in the Division 3 North tournament, held at Hillview Golf Course on October 21st. With only the top three teams moving on, Amesbury grabbed the third spot with a team score of 308. The Generals and Vikings were not far off the pace, each finishing at 313. Manchester-Essex came in at 320, with Lynnfield and North Reading finishing at 322.

Amesbury played in the Division 3 Finals on Monday, October 27th at the Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown, finishing 6th in the state. While the Indians played for the team title, there were several CAL players who were there playing for the state individual title. Among those was Manchester-Essex's Ben Bichet, who was the top finisher in the North sectional, along with Triton's Brad Small and North Reading's Ryan Delaney.

While the Masconomet and Pentucket teams did not qualify for the tournament, each sent a player to the Division 2 North sectional round. The Chieftain's George May and the Sachems' Dan Beaton each played for the chance to move on to the individual state finals at the Glen Ellen Country Club in Millis. Beaton finished with a respectable 82, but the cut for the finals was 80. May shot a 77, good for a second place tie and a trip to the finals on October 27th.

Field Hockey:Ipswich @ Peabody
 
Ipswich coach Sarah Merullo brought her team to Peabody on Wednesday afternoon needing a single point to qualify for the state tournament. Pam Grant, who coached Sarah at Manchester-Essex several years ago, and the Tanners were in a little more desperate situation, needing 9 points over their final 6 games to extend their season.

The teams were scoreless with nine minutes left in the game, when McKinley Karpa scored off an assist by Julia Glavin. Kelsey Daly started the play by intercepting a ball and passing up to Delaney Whooley, who found Glavin. Karpa would add an insurance goal with three minutes remaining, scoring off a corner, with the assist coming from Lauren Gallant. The Tigers surrendered no defensive corners and put forth exceptional midfield play, team defense, and passing.

So the Tigers have clinched their tournament berth, while Peabody still needs those nine points. The two teams will meet once more on October 24th, the final game of the regular season for both teams.

Field Hockey:Hamilton-Wenham @ Masconomet
