The Everett High girls hockey team continued their winning ways, skating to a 5-2 win over Cambridge with a solid two way effort.

Meghan Pride, assisted by Sam Rebello and Michelle Zullo, put the Lady Crimson Tide on the scoreboard in the first period, but Cambridge responded to knot matters at 1-1 by the first intermission.

However, Everett asserted control of the contest in the second frame with two unanswered goals. Krystina Hogan, assisted by Nikki Martinelli and Alex Arvanaitis, lit the lamp to give Everett the lead for good and then Arvanaitis gave Everett a two goal bulge. Interestingly, Lady Crimson Tide goalie Christy Welch was credited with the assist on Alex’s goal, an unusual stat for a goalie.

Junior Nicole Flores then put the game away in the final period , first with an end to end rush for an unassisted goal and then with another lamplighter, assisted by Hogan and Arvanaitis.

"Our seniors stepped up to lead us in this game," said EHS head coach Joe McLaughlin. "Their experience really came to the forefront."

McLaughlin and his crew improved to 4-2-1 on the season which is good for nine points, almost halfway to the 20 points needed for a berth in the post season state tournament.

The girls were set t take on Chelmsford on the holiday and will host Masconomet Saturday with a 3:00 face off.
