The Lady Anchors were led by senior captains Allison Caloggero and Kristina Ofoedu (Methuen), the Anchors came out with defensive intensity. A hard fought battle, the game was close all the way to the final minutes, when Amanda Andre (Somerville) came off the bench with the score tied to draw an offensive foul and have a put back on the other end to give the Anchors the room they needed to pull out the victory.
