The two top lacrosse teams in the area as well as one of the better baseball teams all kept their seasons alive on Saturday.

Play on Bishop Guertin and Campbell boys lacrosse, but say farewell for this season to the Merrimack boys lacrosse and Hollis Brookline softball teams.

Here’s your Super Saturday rundown:

BOYS LACROSSE

BG will now face No. 3 Exeter in Wednesday’s semifinals at Exeter’s Bill Ball Stadium at 5 p.m.

NO. 4 PINKERTON 13, NO. 5 MERRIMACK 5

The Tomahawks season came to a close but that didn’t stop Conor Dunn from setting the school record in points for a season with 70, thanks to his two goals. It surpassed his brother Kyle’s record of 69 a year ago.
