Newton North used an early goal to beat Dedham 1-0 at Fairbanks Park on Wednesday.

The Dedham girl's soccer team tied 1-1 Braintree Tuesday afternoon.
It didn't downpour for long Tuesday afternoon, but when it did the Dedham High School Marauders quickly saw the disadvantage of playing on grass. At the 30-minute mark Braintree scored the game's first goal as Dedham keeper Ellen Masalsky slipped on a mud patch in front of the goal. "The field conditions were tough for both teams," Dedham coach Don Savi said following the match. "Unfortunately it rained after the match started.

The Wamps lead didn't last long as a minute later, Dedham sophomore Emily Pike scored the game-tying goal for the Marauders. Dedham (9-1-2) was without senior captain Sarah Warjas, who will return for Thursday's …

After facing 'powerhouse' Norwood, Dedham beats up on Brookline on Wednesday.
Dedham softball continued with their roller coaster ride through the rain and their Bay State League schedule Wednesday afternoon, with a lofty 26-1 win over Brookline. The game was played at Sugrue Field at Parks and Recreation due to the inclement weather and the Marauders responded by jumping out to an early 14-0 lead after one inning against a troubled Brookline team. One bright spot for Dedham (10-6) was freshman, and hockey sensation, Colleen Downing’s first inning home run that cleared the short left field porch for her first career home run. When asked whether this was as big as scoring a goal for the Marauder hockey team, Downing responded, "I think this is bigger than scoring a goal. You don’t get them as often." That might be …
