With a spot in the New England Tournament on the line, the girls stormed back from a 4-1 deficit in the first half to secure the crucial victory against a determined Hopkins squad. In the back-to-back game against Andover, the starters secured an early lead and turned the game over to the second line, and those players maintained defensive control throughout the final period.
The girls will play Sacred Heart next Saturday in the quarterfinals.
