The Scarlet Knights are one step closer to helping their coach reach that achievement after they toppled Wilmington in the North Division 2 semifinal by a 3-0 margin. “It’s the only way to go out,” said Tarbox. “Never plan this way, but if you’re going to retire there is no better way to go out than with hard working kids and skillful kids.” Following a defensive first half, North Andover and Wilmington appeared poised to enter halftime in a scoreless game.

Wilmington scores power play goal early, adds empty netter late to snag 2-0 North Division two semifinal win.
It may be of little consolation to North Andover boys hockey fans, but Scarlet Knights head coach Pete Marfione believes his team just lost to the Division 2 state champions.

Wilmington, meanwhile, advanced to Monday’s final against Winthrop with a berth in the state championship game on the line. “They’ll probably win the next two games I’d imagine,” said Marfione. “They’re the best team we’ve faced all year.

North Andover falls at Concord-Carlisle.
The North Andover boys lacrosse team fell to Concord-Carlisle 8-2 yesterday afternoon at White Field in a Division 2 first round game. The loss ends the Knights’ season with a record of 11-9.

They’re fast, athletic, and well-coached. They got a great team.” Concord scored midway through the first to take the early lead before exploding for four goals in the second to extend the lead…

It was a matter of five points that ended up keeping the North Andover Scarlet Knights boys team out of the All-State Meets, as they finished in fifth place in Division II at the MIAA Eastern Mass Divisional Championships on Nov. 13 at Franklin Park. "We were just out by seven spots and 20 seconds," said head coach Rick Dellechiaie, "it was close and we made it interesting. Overall I am very happy with the way we ran today." The Knights (179) were just edged out by fourth place Lincoln-Sudbury (172) and missed the wildcard entry as their team time (1:28.56) was behind Acton-Boxborough (1:26.02), the DI fifth place finisher. Leading the way for the boys, and qualifying for All-States as individuals, were seniors Tip Coppa (17:10) and …
