Amanda Conway and the Tewksbury/Methuen girls’ hockey team skated not only into postseason with their 7-3 victory over Wayland/Weston, but into the record books too.

Conway, a junior forward, scored five goals to give her 60 on the season — a Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association girls’ hockey record, according to stats kept by masshshockey.com. The previous record was Andrea Ciarletta’s mark of 56 for Watertown/Melrose in 2002-03.

“It’s amazing,” Conway said. “But I can only thank my team for being there for me.”

Conway’s record coincided with a significant team accomplishment: finishing a 12-0 season in Merrimack Valley/Dual County Small play. The only game in which Conway didn’t score this season was the only game the Red Rangers (18-1) lost — a 4-3 decision to Gardner/St. Bernard’s Jan. 29.
