READING — A gallant effort fell short for Pentucket Thursday afternoon in the Division 3 North semifinals.

The Sachems gave favored Lynnfield all it could handle before falling 2-0. One of Lynnfield's goals was kicked in accidentally by a Pentucket player in the first half.

Lynnfield (16-2-2), which beat Pentucket 4-0 and 3-1 in the regular season, got an insurance goal in the second half from standout senior Jonathan Luders, who also was given credit for the first goal.

The Sachems (13-5-3) did have a pair of scoring chances but twice the ball hit the cross bar and bounced back. Freshman goalie Tyler Correnti was superb in defeat, making 12 saves, and head coach Christian Langlois lauded the play of senior Trevor Blanchard.

"We played pretty well but just couldn't get the offense going," said Langlois.
