Amesbury, Newburyport may meet in semifinal

(Continued)

The perception is that Newburyport always gets better as the season progresses, routinely hitting its peak in the state tournament. But the numbers show Amesbury should be better prepared if the teams meet in the semifinal. Newburyport is 2-1-1 in its last four matches.

In Amesbury’s 5-2 victory over Arlington Catholic in the tourney opener Sunday evening, Cullen had three goals. Amanda Martin and Hayley Tagliente also scored goals. Hannah Zannini, Natalie Dawes and Madison MacLean had assists.

Pentucket to face off with Salem

The area’s other top-seeded tournament team, the Pentucket boys soccer squad, will host ninth-seed Salem tonight (7 p.m.) at Haverhill Stadium. Like Amesbury girls coach Cathy Berry, Pentucket boys coach Christian Langlois said he felt added pressure in the first round coaching a top-seeded team. It didn’t turn out to be a problem for the Sachems in a 4-0 victory over 16th-seed Dracut.

Matt Farrell deposited two goals for Pentucket. Trevor Collins and Connor Beaton also scored goals.

Crowther fourth at state championships

Newburyport golfer Brendan Crowther finished off his season yesterday by shooting a 77 in the Division 3 Championships at Red Tail Golf Club, placing fourth out of 117 players.

“Brendan has certainly made the postseason something special for Newburyport golf as a junior captain,” Newburyport coach Steve Malenfant said.

Morrissey has huge day on gridiron

Former Triton football coach Jim O’Leary, now the head coach at The Governor’s Academy, called The Daily News with some news about a local athlete following a victory over Milton Academy Saturday. Rowley’s Eli Morrissey led the Govs with 206 rushing yards and five touchdowns.
