HANOVER — The Hanover High girls lacrosse team’s tour de force to begin the season continued Monday with a 17-4 defeat of John Stark.

Hanover has outscored its opponents, 55-6, thus far. McDonnell has committed to play at NCAA Division III Gettysburg (Pa.) College next year. The Bullets reached the national semifinals last spring.

Maggie Higgins had three goals and three assists for the visitors Monday. Sadie Higgins had three goals and an assist and Emily Perras had three goals. Hanover visits Timberlane (4-1) on Thursday.

BASEBALLHanover 7, Pembroke 4

PEMBROKE, N.H. — Sam Sacerdote’s two-run double during the fifth inning provided the winning run and the Bears improved to 4-0. Jackson McBride had two hits and an RBI.

Hanover’s four-run fifth inning was timely, as the NHIAA Division II contest was ended by rain during the top of the sixth. The visitors had scored twice during that frame and had the bases loaded with no outs when the umpires halted play and the final scored reverted to the previous completed inning.
