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.
