For the first two and a half periods fourth-ranked Hingham held a 1-0 lead on No. 1 Malden Catholic, but the Harbormen fatigued late and the Lancers took advantage. Ara Nazarian scored a pair of goals, both off rebounds near the net, to boost the Lancers to the championship game of the Christie Serino Christmas Classic. "Our kids dug down and did what they had to do in the third," said MC coach John McLean. "We outworked our opponent late and when you jump on rebounds good things happen."
