WAKEFIELD - Central Catholic ran unfazed up and down a muddy Northeast Tech field Sunday afternoon.

Behind a strong defensive performance and seven saves from goalie Justin Dansereau, the Raiders scored a goal in each half to beat Northeast 2-0 in the first round of the Division 2 North soccer playoffs.

Lukas Blythe got Central going with a goal in the first half off a nice throw in pass from Eric Roderick. In the second frame, Roderick took a pass from Corey Sarkis and was able to bury it to give the Raiders a solid cushion down the stretch.

Central also got a great game out of sophomore midfielder Bailey Coco, who was getting his first glimpse of postseason soccer.

The No. 11 seeded Raiders will be at No. 3 Beverly Tuesday at 2 p.m.
