The Marauders will play Norton out of the Tri-Valley League on Monday.
The Dedham girl's soccer team will enter the South Division 2 playoffs as a five seed and face Tri-Valley League opponent Norton Monday evening at 5 p.m. at Dedham High School. Coach Don Savi's squad enters winners of five in a row and will face a 10-5-3 Lancer team. "We're just happy to have a home game right now," coach Don Savi said.

A look back at some of the stories we covered the week of May 30.
The unofficial start to summer brought beautiful weather and a moving ceremony Monday at Brookdale Cemetery as 10 members of the armed services that died in action were honored at the annual Memorial Day gathering. Dedham dedicated 10 street signs to "Fallen Heroes." The signs will be placed on the streets the men grew up on. On Wednesday, the skies turned a bit gray as a tornado watch - and eventually warning - was issued for most of Massachusetts, including Dedham. Despite the weather forecasts, Dedham school officials stuck with the plan to hold graduation outdoors at the Endicott Estate. Lightning forced many spectators and students inside, as the ceremony continued in a break from tradition. The school will hold another ceremony on …

The Marauders fell on the road to Fairhaven High School on a bloop hit to center field in the first inning - the game's only run.
The 2011 season came to a close for the Dedham High School softball team Friday afternoon as they dropped a heart-breaking 1-0 game to Fairhaven High School in the second round of the MIAA South Division 2 playoffs. Junior pitcher Brooke Sheehan walked Kayli Moniz, the first batter of the game, and she eventually came around to score. That would be the only offense either team would put across home plate. "Brooke pitched really well for us," Dedham coach Erika Eisenhut said. "Early on maybe a little bit of nerves getting worked out there, but then once they were, she pulled through when we needed big outs." Sheehan settled down quite well after the first as she finished the game with six strikeouts and allowed eight hits. The sixth-seeded…
Dedham baseball loses 7-3 to Wolverines Friday afternoon in opening game of the MIAA playoffs.
Tournament baseball is alive and well within the town lines of both Westwood and Dedham as the two battled it out in their first round bout in the Division 3 South Sectionals at Russell E. Downes field in Westwood Friday. Westwood jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, thanks to the bat of Brett Egizi who launched a grand slam to right field to open the scoring in the first, while the arms of Will Smith and Brendan Skeghill held Dedham in check for the 7-3 Wolverine win. "We got out to a nice lead," said Westwood skipper Brian Whelan, "and we sustained it." The win quickly moves Westwood (12-9) into a second round match-up against Abington Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. in Abington. Dedham, who finished their tough Division 1 schedule going (9-12…

Bears hockey falls 2-1 following a quick whistle.
Ursuline’s girl’s hockey team’s cinderella dance through the MIAA Division 2 South tournament ended Sunday afternoon as 11th-seeded Concord-Carlisle came from behind to win 2-1 in front of a packed house in Foxboro. After a scoreless first period with no penalties and equal action in each zone, Ursuline’s goalie Erica Ragazzo came up with numerous saves to keep her opposition off the board. Ursuline sophomore Delia O’Malley moved the puck beautifully in and out of Concord-Carlisle’s zone throughout the game but was denied on numerous occasions by sophomore counterpart and goalie Michaela Haller, who boasted a 12-8-1 record and 2.37 GAA per game coming into this contest. In the second period, Ursuline (10-8-4) went to the net to what …

5th-seeded team ends Dedham's season with a 67-43 win.
In the opening minutes of Saturday's quarterfinal game between Dedham and Bishop Feehan, the Shamrocks showed they were the quicker and bigger team. They quickly ran up a 15-0 lead and never looked back. The Marauders began competing at that point, but the damage was done, and they fell 67-43 in the quarterfinal round of the MIAA Division 3 playoffs. “We had a tough time making shots, and I really have to credit their defense,” said Dedham coach Ed Hickey. “We didn’t bring our best game today, and Bishop Feeham played extremely well.” Feehan did an excellent job of shutting down the Marauders in those first minutes, and even when the visitors got a look at the net their shots just were not falling. The first quarter was nearly over …

Girls Hockey drops MIAA Tourney match to Sandwich 5-4 in OT.
The Dedham Marauders girls hockey team got wrapped up in a shootout Friday night in Dedham against a Sandwich team that was missing their starting goalie. Despite holding two-goal leads on two occasions, the Marauders couldn’t hold off the barrage of over 40 shots on net by Sandwich, who defeated Dedham 5-4 in overtime in the second round of the MIAA Division 2 South tournament. “I didn’t expect them to get that many shots,” said Dedham star goaltender Emily Mosca after the game. The Marauders jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first period thanks to the stick of freshman and Bay State leading scorer Colleen Downing. Downing’s first goal came in the first 30 seconds of the game, when she landed a wrist shot just inside the left circle…
