Returning superstar Lauren Adams scored her second hat trick in two games as Andover rolled past state power Methuen/Tewksbury 7-1 last Wednesday. Brooke Cedorchuk, Amy Pinkham, Abby Murnane and Lilly Reeves each added a goal for the winners, who scored 14 combined goals in their first two games of the season.
“It’s looking really good,” said Adams. “We have a lot of new players to go with a lot of returning good players. We all work together well in practices and games, so it’s going real good so far.
“We didn’t expect this (against Methuen/Tewksbury). It was good to have a good first period, and then keep that momentum going through the game.”
Andover also beat Central Catholic 7-2 in its opener on Jan. 11.
Eliza O’Sullivan and Rose MacLean each scored twice and Lauren Adams had four assists as Andover continued to roll, whipping Haverhill-Pentucket-North Andover 8-2 on Saturday.
Abby Murnane, Kelley Ross, Rose Memmolo and Kaitlyn Cormier each scored once for the Golden Warriors (3-0). Lillian Jagger (16 saves) and Maggie Mullin (5 saves) combined on the win in net.
Logan Satlow, the emerging 6-foot-6 junior center, erupted for a game-high 18 points, nine in the fourth quarter, as Andover opened its season by edging archrival Central Catholic 60-57 last Tuesday.
“I love playing Central. Love it,” said Satlow. “I was on the bench last year. I didn’t play much. I wasn’t very good. I was really looking forward to this year and to open with Central was the best news. The rivalry is great. I couldn’t sleep last night.”
Golden Warriors head coach Dave Fazio added, “(Satlow) is a worker and didn’t surprise me at all. It wasn’t our best game. I think we have to get tougher. But Central is scary, like they always are. We played well when we had to.”
Returning Andover star Aidan Cammann added 14 points and seven rebounds despite battling foul trouble.
“Let me make this clear: Aidan is the best player in the state,” said Satlow. “I face him every day in practice and he destroys me. I can’t stop him.”
Andover beat Central Catholic for the second time in a week, 61-54 on Saturday. Aidan Cammann scored a game-high 19 points, while and Logan Satlow had 12 points for the winners.
