Danvers 4, Amesbury 2

Amesbury’s season came to a disappointing end on Tuesday night after Danvers rallied from a late 2-1 deficit by scoring three unanswered goals to advance to the Division II North quarterfinal game.

Danvers defenseman Jon Milne scored with 10:45 to go and tied the game at 2-2 before captains Kevin Hodgkins and Matt Flynn each had unassisted goals in the final five minutes to give the No. 8 seed Falcons the win in dramatic fashion.

Amesbury led 2-0 after the first period thanks to a pair of goals by JT Chamberlain and Austin Toohey, but Danvers got back into the game in the second thanks to a goal by Steven Ganley, setting up the eventual rally in the third.

Amesbury goalie Jake Harlow finished the game with 31 saves, compared to Danvers goalie Alex Taylor’s 13. With the win, Danvers will face top seeded Beverly in Saturday’s quarterfinal, while Amesbury finishes the season with an 8-9-4 record.
