Masconomet 3, Austin Prep 1 — Senior Izzy Sarra scored on a breakaway with 1:48 left in the second period to lead the 18th-seeded Chieftains over seventh-seeded and reigning Division 1 champion Austin Prep at O’Brien Arena in a Division 1 state quarterfinal.
“I told them, if we score first, we’re going to win it. That’s it,” Masconomet coach Ryan Sugar said. “They came out flying in the second period, and it all happened from there.”
Junior Kate Irons opened the scoring less than four minutes into the second period for Masconomet (12-8-3). Senior Madison Brooke extended the lead to 3-0 34 seconds into the third period.
Annie Richards scored for Austin Prep (14-3-2).
“All we expected was basically come out, try to win the first game of the tournament and go from there,” Sugar said. “The fact that we’re going to the semifinals to possibly go play in the Garden . . . is unbelievable right now.”
