Thursday's schools roundup

Lila Chamoun solid in net for Milton girls’ hockey team in shutout victory

Milton girls’ hockey goaltender Lila Chamoun didn’t need much time to settle into the new season.

Chamoun racked up 21 saves in a stellar shutout on Thursday, giving the Wildcats a solid foundation as they picked up a 2-0 win against Fontbonne/Latin Academy at Quincy’s Shea Rink.

“We rely on her on a daily basis,” Milton coach Matt Lodi said. “She pushes her teammates to be strong players and she works hard in practice. That translated really well tonight.”

A junior captain, Chamoun rose from splitting time in net as a freshman during the COVID-impacted 2020-21 season to Bay State Conference All-Star status as a sophomore. She kicked off her junior year by making some critical third-period saves to stop opposing breakaway chances.


“She squares the puck up and moves so well in the net that she is able to make those big saves when we need her the most,” Lodi said.

Molly Murphy and Ellie McConville each scored to lead the Wildcats offense, which continuously applied pressure and notched 28 shots on goal.

Lodi believes his squad can make some noise in the league and wants to see his team iron out consistency throughout a full contest.

“If we can play complete games in all three zones of the ice for 45 minutes, we’ll have a lot of success this year,” he said.

Peabody 2, Gloucester 0 — Penny Spack and Catie Kampersal each tallied a goal in the No. 13 Tanners’ (1-0) Northeast conference win over the Fishermen (0-1). Alyse Mutti was tremendous in goal and earned her first shutout of the season.
