    School roundup: Max Allen backstops D-Y

    Max Allen did it again for the Dennis-Yarmouth field hockey team.

    He shut down Falmouth Monday, making five saves in the No. 3 Dolphins’ 2-0 home win.

    Dennis-Yarmouth (2-0) beat No. 15 Hingham, 5-0, in a game that also featured five saves from Allen to open its season last Wednesday.


    “It’s not just him,” Dolphins coach Mary O’Connor said of her junior netminder. “The entire defense has done well. He had five saves, but our defense did a great job stopping Falmouth before they got to him.”
