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.

Navigation Update:
 
To avoid confusion in navigating between school based pages and sport based pages, I have consolidated the School Menu (mascot icons along the top) and the Sports Menu (sport icons along the left side) into a drop down menu, which is accessed by clicking anywhere on the rectangular header that indicates what page you are. For example, right now it probably says 'Front Page'.

When you want to find a schedule for a team or information about a school, open this menu and select the school you would like. This will bring you to the 'Schedules' page for that school, where you can use the buttons to select the sport and level you are looking for. You will not find scores or standings here, just the schedules. You will also find links to other information specific to the selected school.

When you are looking for scores, records, and standings, that is the time to use the Sport links. Drop down the main menu and select the sport you are interested in. Please note, scores and standings are only available for varsity sports. Here you can still view schedules for all teams that play that sport, but you will only find the varsity schedules. As with the 'School' pages, there will be buttons connecting you to other information pertaining to the current sport.

Clicking the 'Front Page' button, or clicking on the MAScores logo in the top left corner of the site, will bring you back to the 'Front Page.'

As always, I welcome feedback, whether it be about the new menu system or any other part of the site. I can be reached by e-mail here.

Boys Tennis:Winthrop @ Danvers
 
The Danvers Falcons defeated Winthrop Wednesday in an NEC South conference match. The final score was 4-1, as the Falcons dealt with the windy conditions slightly better than the Vikings.

The Falcons raced out to a quick 2-0 lead when Nick Lisichonok took the first singles flight for Danvers 6-0, 6-0 over Winthrop's Robbie Miles. A few moments later Jim Cunningham defeated Matt Sennot 6-2, 6-2 to extend the Danvers' lead to 2-0.

With only one point away from clinching the match, Danvers' first doubles tandem of Matt Kiddny and Chris Shalkoski defeated Winthrop's Nick Miller and Brian Perrin 6-2, 6-2. Moments later, Danvers jumped to a 4-0 lead in the match, when Emmill Piorro beat Jake Lafratta in a tough 3 setter 0-6, 6-1, 6-2.

The last match to finish for the day was the second doubles flight which saw Ryan Duyon and Mike Gennaco of Winthrop salvage one point for the Vikings in the match. They topped Dan Bonson and Erick McCay 6-2, 2-6, (7-5).

The Vikings host Marblehead next Wednesday, while the Falcons travel to Swampscott on Friday.

Girls Lacrosse:Marblehead @ Peabody
 
Marblehead improved to 2-3 with a victory on the road at Peabody. After the teams played to a 7-7 tie at the half, the Magicians picked it up in the second half on their way to a 16-12 win.

Offensively, Marblehead was paced by Adrienne Ciccone and Corinne Mayle with 4 goals each, along with hat-tricks from Amanda Gregory and Lucie Poulin. Single goals were tallied by Emily Freedland and Sydney Cayen. Ball control was a strength for the Magicians, as they recovered many groundballs and won many of the draw controls, led by Cayen (7 DC) and Kelsey Detels (5 DC).

Marblehead coach Annie Pugh was happy with her team's performance. "Today we played a strong fifty minutes. Offense is settling and learning how to work off of each other and defense was aggressive and took advantages of opportunities."

The Magicians travel to Martha's Vineyard this Saturday (12:30 PM), while Peabody (1-1) will play at Beverly on Friday at 4:00 PM.
