Jaclyn Torres , Andover: The reigning Merrimack Valley Conference field hockey MVP, she pumped in five goals in a 12-9 victory over North Andover, avenging an early-season loss to the Scarlet Knights.

Game of the week:


Marblehead girls at Ipswich, Monday, 4

With just four underclassmen on the roster, Marblehead ripped off 11 straight wins after a season-opening loss to Acton-Boxborough (8-2). A matchup against Ipswich, which suffered its only losses to Wayland (8-1 record) and Lexington (9-2), will be a tough test.
