A loss, but not without positives.

Shawsheen’s girls hockey team may have escaped with a 3-1 victory on home ice Tuesday, but the visiting Lady Headers didn’t make it easy. Madi Graber scored a crucial goal in the third period, assisted by Madi Reno and Teyah Fleming.

Freshman goalkeeper Scarlet Lee played fantastic with 29 saves – yes, 29 – while Marblehead’s “overall defensive unit played well,” according to first-year coach Hadley Woodfin.
