Dylan Sumner headed in a corner kick from Wally Esker in the 53rd minute to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the host Warriors (8-8-2) past the Bernardians (7-9-2) and into the Central Mass. Tournament in the regular-season finale for both teams. Both teams needed a victory to qualify for the postseason - a tie would have ended the season for both teams. T.J. Mulgrew broke a scoreless draw three minutes into the second half - Mulgrew also scored on a header off a corner from Esker. St. Bernard's answered just a minute later, with Shawn Bergeron scoring to make it 1-1. Brandon Esker scored an insurance goal in the 58th minute for the defending district champion Warriors, who won their last five games.
