Peabody certainly has had Danvers’ number this season.
One number the Tanners no longer have is 32, which is how many consecutive winless games they had played entering Wednesday night. But a run of five unanswered goals in the second and third periods allowed Peabody to rally and stun Danvers, 6-5, in a Northeastern Conference battle.
Peabody also had played Danvers to a 2-2 tie on Dec. 15. Aside from that, it was all losses dating back to a 7-1 victory against Beverly on Feb. 15, 2017.
“Danvers has always been a big rival and we seem to play them tough,” Peabody coach Mark Leonard said.

Michael Zarro and McCarron then scored in the third to give Peabody a 6-4 lead, and they held on from there behind goalie Lucas DeMild (31 saves).
“The kids played great and showed a lot of character after being down 4-1,” Leonard said. “Hopefully they can build off that and win a few games down the stretch.”
Jared Mscisz scored twice and Cody Plaza, Tyler Puska and Tyler Robinson scored the Falcons.
