Maurer, Wyner sacrifice to lead Sachems

The big scorers almost always get the headlines but it's impossible to overlook the contributions Thursday of Pentucket's Anna Wyner and Greta Maurer.

Their combined offensive output? Zero points. Their impact on the game? Off the charts. The two guards face-guarded Tewksbury's talented 6-foot senior Allie Wild and held her to two points. That was the difference as Pentucket pounded the Redmen, 41-25. The score was misleading as it was 30-11 at the half and the 22-2 Sachems cruised from there in the Division 2 North quartefinal matchup at Pentucket's Hardy Gym. "They (Anna, Greta) sadrificed their games," said coach John McNamara.  Wild was just chosen to the 13-player All-Merrimack Valley Conference team.  It was yet another easy win for the Sachems, but that doesn't tell the story. Not even close. Tewksbury is a tough club from the Division 1 MVC. The two played late in the season and Pentucket won 36-34 on a Jelly Hurley hoop at the buzzer. "Tewksbury (12-10) is one of the top three times in this sectional," said McNamara, himself a former Tewksbury High great. His Sachems had never played Tewksbury prior to last year's North title game at the Tsongas Arena.
