Hanover — Fifth-seeded Hanover High opened the NHIAA Division II girls soccer tournament on an authoritative note, rolling over 12th-ranked Coe-Brown, 5-0 at Merriman-Branch Field on Thursday afternoon.

“We came out really strong and dominated throughout with a really good team effort,” Hanover coach Doug Kennedy said.

Bryn Kable led the way for Hanover with a goal and two assists. Caroline Adams, Sage McGinley-Smith, Casey McGuire and Riley Craft each added one goal. Pepper Joseph added two assists. Charlotte Johnson and Casey McGuire each added one. Bella Bardeles made three saves in net.

The Marauders were able to get much-needed rest prior to playoffs after playing three games in four days to close the regular season.

“Last week was a drain, it was too much; no team should have to play three games in four days.” Kennedy said. “Regathering ourselves and some good practice allowed us to come out with a real positive frame of mind.”

The Marauders (12-3-2) travel to face the fourth-ranked Oyster River on Sunday.

Woodsville 1, Lisbon 0 (ot)

Woodsville — It took Olivia Sarkis only 1 minute, 56 seconds into overtime to score the game-winner for the Engineers.

Leah Krull started the play as she stole it from the Libson defender and poked it through to Sarkis, who scored. McKenzie Dennis recorded two saves for the shutout.

The sixth-seed Engineers travel to face third-seed Profile on Sunday.

Sharon 0, Twinfield 0(Sharon advances on PKs)

Plainfield, Vt. — Sophia DiGuiseppe, Jasmin Johnson and Mary Gage Donohue converted in a penalty-kick tiebreaker as the ninth-ranked Phoenix (2-9-4) nipped the eighth-ranked Trojans in a VPA Division IV first-round match on Wednesday.

After a pair of scoreless regular-season draws, the two squads again couldn’t put a shot in the net through 100 minutes of regulation and overtime play in their tournament contest. That sent the match to penalties, where DiGuiseppe, Johnson and Donohue scored en route to a 3-1 decision. Sharon goalkeeper Rory Livingston denied Twinfield’s first two attempts to all but secure the Phoenix’s advance.

Sharon visits No. 1 Proctor in a quarterfinal on Saturday at 1 p.m. The two teams didn’t meet during the regular season.
