Game to watch


Beverly boys (9-1) at Westford (9-2), Saturday, 7: While Westford Academy packs a punch with junior Jay Drapeau — who leads Eastern Massachusetts in scoring with 59 points (40 goals, 19 assists) — Beverly has its own trio of scorers who need defending. Seniors Ryan Schipp and Brendan Flaherty and sophomore Nick Albano have combined for 100 points this season.
