Alanna Moran, Marshfield: In three games — two wins — the sophomore left wing scored five goals for the SEMGHL East-leading Rams.

Hannah Murphy , Duxbury: Before the Dragons had their 34-game win streak snapped by 6-0 Falmouth, Murphy netted three goals and added an assist to hand Hingham its first loss of the season.

Jimmy Tierney , Oliver Ames: The sophomore goaltender turned in two strong performances in a 1-1 week for the Tigers, including a 41-save shutout of Canton on Jan. 2.

Game of the Week

Walpole boys at Norwood, Saturday, 6

At Canton’s Metropolis Rink it will be a battle of not just two tough Bay State Herget teams, but two stingy defenses as well. The host Mustangs, led by senior goaltender Jordan Davis and his 1.17 goals-against average, have given up nine goals in six games. The Rebels, though, are capable of putting up a big numbers, as they did against Brockton (Jan. 2, 7-3 win) and Brookline (Dec. 19, 8-0 win).
