BF Softball team drops two at Corning tourney


The Bishop Fenwick softball team ended its season with losses to Beverly and Danvers last Saturday in the annual Courtney Corning Tournament at Endicott College. The Crusaders could have qualified for the playoffs by winning both of their games. But they struggled, losing, 16-6, to Beverly in the first round and 13-6 to Danvers in the consolation game.


Boys’ lax team defeated in 1st round

The Bishop Fenwick boys’ lacrosse team saw its season end with a 10-3 loss at Newburyport on Tuesday in the first round of the Div. III North playoffs. The Crusaders got two scores from Brian Harrington and single tally from Derek DelVecchio. Goalie Deven Fiandaca played well and kept BF within striking distance for much of the game. Head coach Steve Driscoll also credited the effort of seniors Chris Terry and Matt Gorman.

BF finished the season 10-11.



Baseball team makes playoffs

Bishop Fenwick needed a win last weekend to qualify for the post-season and got it last Saturday with a 3-0 shutout of Everett in the first round of the annual Geanoulis Tournament at Peabody High School. Pitcher David Furtado went the distance for the shutout, and Dan Mastromatteo drove in a run with a single. The other two scores came across on sacrifice flies from Rob Murphy and Jimmy Moore. Nick Fowler also scored twice and had two steals.

The Crusaders were blanked, 4-0, by Andover in the tourney title game on Sunday. They enter the Div. III North tournament at 10-10 and seeded 16th. BF hosts a preliminary round contest against 17th-seeded Bedford this Friday.


Boys’ lacrosse team closes with victory



With 10 seniors being honored last Wednesday, May 24, at home, the Peabody High School boys’ lacrosse team concluded 2017 on a bright note with a convincing 19-4 win over Salem. Three Peabody players scored three or more goals in the win, which left the Tanners with a final record of 6-12 for the season. They did not qualify for the post-season.

Nick Patturelli tallied four times; seniors Ben Cohen and Tim January scored three goals each. Junior Stephen Ell dented the net twice to finish with 43 goals on the season and 62 points overall. He ranked among the top scorers in the North Shore. Meanwhile, Devon Jacques collected the first two goals of his varsity career. Also contributing offensively were Ryan Vinagro, Colby Therrien, Josh Tanzer, James Nicholson and freshman Trevor Smith. Goalie Jake DeStefano helped the cause by stopping 10 shots.

Girls open playoffs at home

After closing out the regular season with a solid 15-2 Senior Night victory over Gloucester last Wednesday, May 24, the Peabody girls’ lacrosse team hosted a first round playoff contest this week. The Tanners, who compiled a 16-4 regular season mark, earned the sixth seed in Div. I North and took on 11th-seeded Lowell on Wednesday.

Due to numerous postponements during a rainy spring, the Tanners ended up having to play seven games in nine days to close out the campaign. But it concluded well as six seniors scored in last Wednesday’s regular-season finale.

Lauren Wolff highlighted the proceedings by notching seven points (six of them goals) in the contest and finishing with 100 points for the season. She became the school’s all-time leading scorer the week before.

Also contributing were seniors Jillian Amirault with three scores, Kirsten Bradley and Chloe Gizzi with two each and Kelly Crotty and Alyssa Shashaty with one each.

Head coach Dennis Desroches credited senior goalkeeper Gianna Denisco with a “monster” game – she made 10 saves. He also cited Ali Demeo, Carla Patania, Emily Bouchard, Jillian McCormick and Teanna Prince with “strong all-around games.”
