South: Players of the Week, Top 10 boys’ and girls’ teams

High 5

Peter Drowne , Bridgewater-Raynham: In the Trojans’ only game of the week, the senior goalie delivered 30 saves as the 3-5-3 Trojans stole a 3-2 win over 6-2-3 Barnstable.

Ela Hazar , Westwood: The junior forward netted four goals as the Wolverines earned a home-and-home split against Mansfield/Oliver Ames, scoring two goals in each game.

Brendan Murphy , Mansfield: In a pair of come-from-behind Hockomock League wins over King Philip and Attleboro, the junior forward tallied four goals and two assists.

Caroline Nichols , Norwell: The freshman forward scored her team’s only two goals in a 2-1 win over Scituate and added three assists in an 8-1 blowout of Quincy/North Quincy.

John White , Walpole: The senior captain led the Rebels to a 1-0-1 week — a commanding 5-1 win over Needham and a hard-fought 4-4 tie with Natick — with four goals, including a hat trick against the Rockets.

Game of the Week

Archbishop Williams boys (6-2-3) at Arlington Catholic (4-1-4), Saturday, 8

This tough Catholic Central matchup features two of the top teams in the state. The Archies, led by junior forwards Michael Sorenti (5 goals, 8 assists) and Michael Davis (5 goals, 4 assists), haven’t lost in two weeks. The Cougars have only fallen once all season, though, and have two 18-point scorers (senior captains Brendon O’Connell and Zach Blanch). Archies goalie Joe Vinay (1.99 goals-against average, .932 save percentage) and whichever of AC’s three netminders gets the start could give both offenses fits.
