Game of the Week

Fontbonne girls (7-4) at Duxbury (8-1),
Saturday, 6

Aside from a 1-0 loss to Falmouth, the Dragons have been unstoppable. But don’t be so quick to dismiss the Ducks. Fontbonne lost to Archbishop Williams, 4-3, in its season opener and owns a pair of shutout losses to Arlington Catholic. But the Ducks topped Hingham, 3-1, on Saturday night, and feature four players with double-digit points, including freshman forward Katherine Nolan (three goals, eight assists).
