Seamlessly weaving her way through a number of Concord-Carlisle skaters all afternoon, Amanda Conway made things look easy.

Playing with a game speed visibly at another level, the junior forward for the Methuen/Tewksbury co-op program routinely flew by Patriots skaters up and down the full length of the ice.

She kick-started breakaways, made nifty must-see feeds to teammates, and dropped back defensively on power-play kills.

In her team’s 6-4 victory, she also scored five goals.

“She’s just unbelievable sometimes,” said eighth-grade teammate Kelly Golini said of Conway’s play on the ice. “Sometimes I just can’t even describe it.”

Thus far, in powering Methuen/Tewksbury to a 7-0 start, the returning Globe All-Scholastic has found the back of the net 24 times, accounting for more than half of her team’s 40 goals.
