Freshmen backstopped Fontbonne to state tourney

Hingham coach Tony Messina said his team is up for the challenge, though, led by senior John Grenier (.919 save percentage, 1.43 goals-against average) in net and junior Sam D’Antuono (17 goals, 13 assists) up front.
Messina said he could also sprinkle in shorter practices or days off, if need be, this time of year.
“It can be tough, but they’re high school kids,” Messina said. “They have endless amounts of energy. You just have to channel it in the right direction.”
Girls in a hurry, too
The Hingham girls also have a busy stretch, with five games in seven days starting Friday. All of them will be at home, with the final two a part of “The 8 Showcase” tournament, which Hingham is hosting. . . . Due to the weekend snowstorm, nearly all the teams in the region were only able to play one game last week.
