#6 Foxboro, 8 vs. #3 Bromfield, 9 – Final – Foxboro had one last chance in the closing moments, forcing a turnover and getting a good look at goal, but the Bromfield goalie came through with a clutch save to deny the Warriors a spot in the Final Four. Val Beigel was the top scorer for Foxboro on Tuesday, finishing with a hat trick. Mya Waryas had two goals, Cate Noone and Paige Curran each had a goal and an assist, and Mary Collins had a pair of helpers. Kate Collins also found the back of the net and Grace Riley added an assist. Audrey Campbell made five saves in the Foxboro goal.
The sixth-seeded Rocketeers blanked #3 Walpole, 3-0, on the campus of Bird Middle School, securing their spot in the Division 2 Final Four for the first time in program history. North previously reached this point back in 2014 when the state was formatted by sections, then in the Division 1 South Final.
Now in a statewide format, North is just one of four teams left in the state in Division 2 after junior Kelly Colleran tossed a shutout with 12 strikeouts, Mandi Hanewich clubbed four hits and scored two runs, and the Rocketeers handed the Timberwolves just their third loss of the season.
“I’m so happy for them, it’s so awesome,” said longtime North Attleboro head coach Bill Wallace, who has been at the helm for 21 seasons over two stints. “They’ve done a great job, they’ve bought in, and it’s really fun. I need Lewis and Clark, I’ve never been this far.
“It’s been such a fun ride because I don’t think in our heart of hearts going into this season and even during the middle of the season, we were wondering if we could win three games in the tournament? But as the season has progressed, they believe they can beat anyone and that’s awesome. That’s all you want.”
The last time the program reached this point in the tournament, they fell behind in the first inning. This time, the Rocketeers got off to a great start with two runs in the top of the first inning, putting the pressure on the hosts.
Hanewich smacked a leadoff single and took second after a bunt from Ally Levine was misplayed in the infield. A wild pitch pushed both runners ahead and Hanewich came home to score as Levine beat the throw to third on an infield grounder from Zoey McDonough for a 1-0 lead just four at-bats into the game.
“That was huge,” Wallace said. “I will tell you…if Mandi Hanewich is not the best leadoff batter in the state, she’s gotta be in the top three. She just gets on and the best thing about her, she did a lot of that with two strikes. She takes that monster cut on the first pitch and then next thing you know, she’s driving it out, and she’s so fast out of the box.”
That set the stage for senior Shaelyn Burns, who took the first pitch she saw into right field for an RBI single and a quick 2-0 lead.
“Our team was super excited on the bench, I could definitely feel our confidence [rise],” Hanewich said. “We were all riled up and we were so excited all week getting ready for today. We just wanted to get on them early and we did. We’ve never done this in program history so this is awesome. It just means a lot for me because it’s my senior year, and I’m super excited.
Colleran allowed a one-out single to Walpole’s Susie McAdams but quickly got two outs, including her first strikeout, to escape without any further harm. And that’s just about how each of the next five innings went as well.
After a leadoff walk in the second and a sac bunt put a runner in scoring position, Colleran got another strikeout and then Burns made a terrific diving play at third on a bunt attempt for the third out. The junior right-handed pitcher struck out the six in the third, and retired the side in order in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, getting a pair of strikeouts in each of the latter two.
“I’ve said this all along…when you have two kids that can back-to-back and keep pounding the strike zone, throw 12, 14, 16 strikeouts a game…it’s really hard to scout for, it’s really hard to defend,” Wallace said of Colleran and McDonough, who started in North’s win earlier this week. “I’m sure they knew Kelly was going to pitch today, but having the second option can create doubt.”
Walpole freshman pitcher Sharlotte Stazinski settled down after the first, working around a two-out bunt from Hanewich in the second, and getting the Rocketeers in order in back-to-back innings in the third and fourth.
North’s offense once again got a big spark from Hanewich, who orchestrated the insurance run with a one-out single in the top of the fifth. An error moved both runners forward and an infield single from Colleran loaded the bases for the Big Red.
McDonough got under one and sent it deep enough to the outfield to allow the speedy Hanewich to race home to make it 3-0.
Hanewich also had a one-out double in the top of the seventh but was stranded at third.
Walpole finally snapped Colleran’s streak at 15 batters in a row retired as Catie Powderly gave the hosts some life with a leadoff single in the bottom of the seventh, the Timberwolves’ first hit since the first inning. To add to the drama, Norah Broderick followed with another single before Colleran got back-to-back strikeouts. An infield error loaded the bases and brought the winning run to the plate but Colleran induced a grounder to second where Maddie Bailey was able to knock it down, collect the ball, and fire to first for the final out.
“I knew the heart of the order was coming up but I knew if I just trusted what I had been doing all season I could get it done,” Colleran said. “And Maddie made a great play for us sticking with it.”
North Attleboro softball (17-6) will play the winner of #2 Tewksbury and #9 Somerset Berkley in the D2 Semifinals on a date and time to be announced, with a location to be determined. Tewksbury and S-B are set to play on Saturday night at 7:00.

#31 Lynn Classical, 0 @ #2 King Philip, 15 – Final (5 Inn.) – King Philip senior Meg Sherwood clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning and junior Sarah Cullen blasted a two-run shot in the fourth as the Warriors rolled to a big win over Lynn Classical in their playoff opener. Sherwood’s homer and an RBI single from Maddie Paschke presented KP with a 3-0 lead after an inning, and an RBI single from Liv Petrillo in the second extended the lead to 4-0. After a scoreless third, the Warriors exploded for 11 runs in the fourth. Mia Bennett got the runs started with an RBI single and Paschke cleared the bases with a three-run double to right.

Sophomore Jordan Bennett (4IP, 3BB, 8K) and senior Emma Sheehan (1IP, 1BB, 3K) combined for the five-inning no-hitter for KP.
#10 Attleboro, 4 @ #7 Methuen, 5 – Final
#11 Bedford, 0 @ #6 North Attleboro, 8 – Final – For the second straight day, North got a standout pitching performance to advance to the Div. 2 quarterfinal. Zoey McDonough got the nod in the circle against Bedford and tossed a two-hitter, both infield singles, while striking out 12. McDonough and Kelly Colleran have combined to allow three hits and one run while striking out 31 in the opening two rounds. North’s offense got off to a quick start, putting the hosts up in the opening inning. Mandi Hanewich singled and Ally Levine followed with an RBI double, scoring herself after an overthrow. Levine got her second double in the third, Colleran followed with a walk, and Shaelyn Burns broke the game wide open with a three-run blast. In the fourth Levine reached with her third hit of the day and scored on a single by McDonough. Colleran, who followed Levine with a single, scored when Burns hit a ground-rule double (narrowly missing out on her second homer of the game). Courtesy runner Arianna McDavitt came in to make it 8-0 on a sac fly by Emma Hanwell. Grace Simmons capped the game with a great catch in right field and doubling a runner off at first.

#30 Danvers, 5 @ #3 Mansfield, 6 – Final – Mansfield senior Jimmy Gilleran led off the bottom of the sixth inning with a game-tying solo home run and then drove in the game-winner with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh as the Hornets walked off with a 6-5 win over upset-minded Danvers. A run in the top of the first presented the visiting Falcons with an early lead but Mansfield jumped ahead with three runs in the bottom of the third, first an RBI single from Brian Butler to tie the game followed by a two-run single from Gilleran to make it 3-1. The seesaw battle continued with Danvers scoring twice in the fifth and Mansfield scoring once (Matt DeShiro sac fly), and the same happening again in the sixth with Danvers taking a 5-4 lead before Gilleran’s solo shot in the bottom half. In the bottom of the seventh, Cian Goulet led off with a single and courtesy runner Caden Colby took second on a sac bunt from Butler.
