Senior Captain Terrance Concannon looked to get the Harbormen off to a fast start. Hingham had multiple chances in the first period to score, but just couldn't capitalize.
Senior Will Ham also had a chance on a break away early one, but Falmouth's goalie stood tall. Ham ended up scoring late in the game.
Senior Tim Carroll puts Hingham up 1-0 in the second period on a tip in from a Bobby Falvey shot. Falmouth ended up tying it up 1-1 with under 2 minutes in the second period.
Junior Paul Forbes had missed a point blank shot late in the 3rd period. Hingham was down 3-1 and Ham's goal with :34 seconds left cut the Harbormen's deficit to just 1, but it was a little too late. Congratulations to all the seniors on a great season and career - Captain Terrance Concannon, Captain Joe Sullivan, Captain Danny Packard, Dom Iaria, Jonathan Fasoli, Colin Gannon, Zach Mallett, Tim Carroll, Cam Tedeschi, Grady Harrington, James Eustace, and Jack Muse.
Girls Hockey: Duxbury 3 - Hingham 0 (Quarter Finals Div 1 )
Senior Delia Dwan fires the puck on net in the first period. The play was pretty evenly matched and the first period ended in a 0-0 tie.
Junior Captain Coco Hernberg fights for the puck against the boards. This was Hingham's second time playing Duxbury this year. Both games have been competitive, but the Harborwomen just fall short against the Lady Dragons.
Sophomore Ryan Maguire is one of many productive underclassmen coming back next year. The team is loaded with talented Freshman and Sophomores who will learn and build from the experiences they faced this year.

Boys Basketball: Scituate 74 - Hingham 58 (Quarter Finals Div 2 South)
In an atmosphere that rivaled an NBA playoff game, this contest between Hingham and Scituate lived up to the hype. The gym was filled to capacity 30 minutes before tip off. And once the game started, it was deafening. Both teams had some great plays to start the game, including this block by Senior Luke Mashburn early in the game. Scituate had a 17-10 lead after 1.
The Harbormen came back to tie it up in the second quarter with the help of Sophomore Curtis Murphy. The Sailors weathered the storm and came right back with 2 quick threes and a couple of baskets extending their lead to 10 at halftime. Murphy finished with a team high 19 points with five 3-pointers.
For the second straight game, Sophomore Nick Johannes came in off the bench and gave Hingham the offense spark they need. Unfortunately, Scituate answered every Hingham surge with big baskets of their own, never allowing Hingham to cut too much into their lead. They maintained their 10 point lead at the end of 3. Johannes had another 10 point game.
The Harbormen never gave up even managing to cut the lead down to 6 half way through the 4th, but today was not their day. Scituate pulled away late and secured the win. Congratulations to the seniors on a great season and 4 exciting years - Captain CJ Julian (pictured), Captain Will O'Connoll, Nick Lynch, Luke Mashburn, and Thomas Koenen.
