Codi Butt surpassed the 400-career point mark Friday night as the St. Mary’s girls lacrosse team defeated Essex Tech 16-9 at Manning Field.

Codi Butt finished her night with nine goals and two assists.

“Codi works hard,” Spartans coach K.C. Butt, Codi’s mother, said. “She plays hard from start to finish. (Reaching) 400 points shows that.”

Mady Hentosh (four goals, assist), Jenna Chaplain (goal), Meg Parthum (goal) and Makayla McGrath (goal) also scored. Kelsey Sullivan and Rylee Flannery each dished an assist.

Goalie Lauren Vaccaro made eight saves.

“I have to give a shoutout to Nicole Callahan on defense,” K.C. Butt said. “She really had an outstanding game.”

St. Mary’s (12-2) travels to Fenwick Monday (4). The Spartans defeated Fenwick earlier this season.

“They played us really tough,” K.C. Butt said. “They always get fired up and ready to play St. Mary’s. It’s a rivalry and I think it’ll be quite a game. Fenwick’s moving in the right direction. We have to step up and show up ready to play.”

GIRLS LACROSSE

Revere 19, Gloucester 11

The Patriots were led by Kiana Napolitano’s eight points and Taylor Sujko’s five goals. Sujko surpassed the 150-career points mark in the win.

BASEBALL

Gloucester 5, Peabody 4

In a back-and-forth game, the Fishermen grabbed their sixth consecutive win and Peabody dropped back under .500 at 5-6. Peabody led 5-4 going into the seventh before Gloucester scored twice to seal the deal.

“It was a classic NEC battle,” Peabody coach Mark Bettencourt said. “We went up two, they tied it up. They went up one, we put up two in the sixth. We were three outs away from an upset but they hit. Eddie Campbell was on the mound and they beat my best. They deserved to win. They’re a good hitting team. They did what they needed to do.”

Jordan Anzuoni got the start for Peabody and pitched four innings. Campbell came on in relief and tossed two innings.

Mike Tasney singled with two outs in the bottom of the seventh but Peabody couldn’t string together a rally.

The Tanners hope back to bounce back Monday (6:30) against Swampscott.

SOFTBALL

Saugus 2, Danvers 0 (F/8)

Kirby Dalton came up with the big hit in an extra-inning victory Friday, knocking a RBI triple in the top of the eighth to give Saugus the lead before scoring on a passed ball. Caitlyn Wood went 2-for-3 in the win, while Emma Howard, Ashley Shaw and Kat Schena each had one hit. Wood also earned the win in the circle, tossing a complete game and allowing just three hits with one walk and eight strikeouts.

Saugus (7-6) travels to Winthrop Monday (4:45).

Lynnfield 12, Ipswich 0 (F/6)

The Pioneers (9-5) qualified for the tournament with a six-inning mercy rule win. Reilly Ganter tossed a three-hitter with five strikeouts and did not walk a batter. She helped herself at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two RBI. Chloe Shapleigh was 3-for-4 with two triples and two runs scored, while Sadie Gearan was 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored. Allie Wing tripled and drove in two runs.

Revere 5, Salem 3

The Patriots improved to 7-4.
