Boston Latin Wolfpack Girls Ice Hockey '14-'15

Methuen's Conway breaks own state scoring mark

Tewksbury-Methuen's Amanda Conway scored seven goals Wednesday in an 8-2 win over Boston Latin to break her own single-season state girls hockey record.
The Methuen High senior now has 67 goals, one more than last winter.  And she has at least four games left ... 3 regular season then the state tourney.
The Red Rangers improved to 11-3-1.
Conway has one more major record in her sights. The state career record, according to masshshockey.com, is 206 by Colleen Sanborn, a 2005 Woburn High grad. Of course, she did it in four years while the Tewksbury-Methuen coop team has only been around for three years. Still, Conway has 185 goals (52, 66, 67).
Third-year assistant coach Dan Merry filled in last night for head coach Arianna Rigano, who had to work at her school's parent-teacher conference.
Merry said of Conway, "She has tremendous hands to go along with tremendous speed. Her third attribute is her battery. Her energy. She could almost play the entire game."
When you put up those improbable scoring numbers, she couldn't be playing defense, right?
Merry quickly shot down that theory.
"She makes a concerted effort to play defense, too. Absolutely she plays defense."
When asked if Conway showed anything new Wednesday, Merry said, "Pretty much every game she's done something I've never seen before from here. Every game she does something a little different, a little new."
Merry said don't overlook her leadership either.
"The coaches would agree is the best thing is how she has grown as a person," said Merry. "She's a two-year captain. And it's a very, very young team with a lot of 6th graders and 7th graders."

One is enough

Katherine Capobianco broke up a play at center ice, took it into the zone and passed off to Amanda Regan. She then fired a pass threw three defenders to Tess Higgins, who finished the goal midway through the second to give HPNA a 1-0 win over Boston Latin.
