D1 girls: Woburn 3, Billerica 2

STONEHAM, Mass. -- Emily Lissner has proven to be more than just a complementary piece on Woburn's top line. She's shown that she is a perfect fit as someone who can be the focal point of the game-plan as well.

Lissner struck for three goals and linemates Kayla Smith and Ashley Moran each recorded assists on two of them as the to-ranked Tanners advanced to the Div. 1 semifinals with a 3-2 victory over No. 9 Billerica last night at Stoneham Arena.

Woburn (19-0-3) takes on nonleague rival and No. 4 seed St. Mary's in Saturday's semifinal round.

"Emily [Lissner] has turned into a big-time player," Woburn head coach Bob MacCurtain said. "To watch her develop since grade nine has been pretty fun. From a coaching perspective, she's been terrific. She had a great night tonight. Sometimes I think the other two [Smith and Moran] get a lot of the attention on that first line, but she's every bit as smart as either one of them."

One thing is for certain, the three talented Tanner forwards have clicked together as a unit. Despite Billerica (16-6-1) grabbing the early courtesy of standout Christie Caliendo, Woburn was able to quickly assume command and maintain it through the remainder of the game.

Lissner got her first goal thanks to a terrific feed from Smith behind the Indians net, and Lissner was able to stick the one-timer home despite having a pair of defenders draped across her back. In the second period, the junior got the go-ahead goal after Smith and Moran cycled the puck in her direction, and then added a power play goal off another feed from Moran at 6:40.

"We've been playing together all fall and summer and we've finally hit a point where we don't have those kids of miustakes," Lissner said of her emergence on the Tanners' top line. "In the fall, we were still trying to figure each other out so I think we got those games out of the way before we got here. Now, after 22 games, we don't have those mistakes any more that we used to make. I think it's working well."

Billerica's freshman goalie Amanda Burns may have been the co-star of the game, keeping her team close and making a number of spectacular stops among her 30 saves. The Indians did manage to get one late as Rachel Peacock pushed one through a scramble with 26 seconds left, but the Tanners were able to hold on.
