With a 4-2 win over Quincy and a 3-1 win over Scituate, Coach John Tocci now finds his team at 9-4 and a lock for post-season play with five games left in the regular season.

First-half goals by junior midfielder Bernardo Neves and junior forward Jimmy Landry gave Duxbury a comfortable 2-0 halftime lead early in last week’s game in Quincy, while Landry’s second of the game and a Tommy Drummy score in the first ten minutes of the second half left little doubt that the Dragons were headed home with a victory.

On Thursday afternoon the Dragons had a chance to qualify for the tournament and they didn’t squander it, as they exploded for three second-half goals after a scoreless first half.

Drummy had some serious scoring bids midway through the first half, along with junior midfielder Morgan Dwinnell, but Duxbury couldn’t seem to get one past Scituate goalie Paul Falaro.

Scituate broke the ice in the second half when Sean Finnegan beat Duxbury goalie Justin Marino in the first two minutes, but Duxbury’s Dan Sangster tied it up with 15:46 left in the half when he beat Falaro to a ball and redirected it past the stunned goalie into the top left corner.

Sangster would be involved in the go-ahead goal five minutes later when he slid a pass through to Drummy, who touched it over to Landry where the junior fired it past Falaro’s left for the game-winner.

Sangster would notch his second of the game later in the half for an insurance tally.

The Dragons will travel to Whitman-Hanson on Thursday and play in the first game of a double-header starting at 4:45 p.m.
