Amanda Conway and the Tewksbury/Methuen girls’ hockey team skated not only into the postseason with their 7-3 victory over Wayland/Weston, but into the record books, too.
Conway, a junior forward, scored five goals to give her 60 on the season — a Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association girls’ record, according to stats kept by masshshockey.com. The previous record was Andrea Ciarletta’s mark of 56 for Watertown/Melrose in 2002-03.
“It’s amazing,” Conway said. “But I can only thank my team for being there for me.”
Conway’s record coincided with a significant team accomplishment: finishing a 12-0 season in Merrimack Valley/Dual County Small play. The only game in which Conway didn’t score was the only game the Red Rangers (18-1) lost — a 4-3 decision to Gardner/St. Bernard’s Jan. 29.
“That goes to show how important she is,” said coach Arianna Rigano. “Obviously, we’re a team, and a lot of goals she’s scored wouldn’t have happened without the other girls on the ice. But also a lot of time she’s able to take it up the ice on her own, unassisted.”
