The St. Mary’s girls hockey team opened the season with a win Wednesday night, taking down Peabody 4-1 at Connery Rink.

The Spartans had four different goal scorers on the night in Sam Porazinski, Felicia D’Alessandro, Marina DiBiasio and Mady Hentosh. DiBiasio dished two assists while Hentosh, Porazinski, Jenna Chaplain, Skylar Davis, Jill Kirby and Kate Grey each dished one assist. Goalie Lauren Vaccaro made 14 saves.

“It was a good team win,” St. Mary’s coach Frank Pagliuca said. “We fell behind after one period, we were down 1-0. It was good for us to respond. We took advantage of power play opportunities in the second and third periods. Jill, Felicia and Marina really sparked us tonight. They used their speed and created a lot of opportunities tonight.

“Overall it was a good win for the first game. We have Arlington Catholic Saturday and that’s always a tough (CCL) game.”

Paige Thibodeau scored Peabody’s goal on assists from Sammie Mirasolo and Sadie Gearn. Goalie Abby Buckley made 42 saves.
