By Nate Weitzer @nweitzer7  ACTON -- Acton-Boxboro's infamous zone defense can give even the best offensive teams fits. Lincoln-Sudbury had struggled to unlock the Colonials zone at crucial times during one-goal overtime losses to A-B in the 2018 state tournament (7-6) and 2019 regular season (9-8), but the Warriors solved A-B's defense when it mattered most recently in Tuesday's D1 North semifinal. They did it by remaining patient and feeding their most dangerous shooter, Johnny Herlihy, who whipped in six goals in a narrow 12-10 victory. The third-seeded Warriors will take on top-seeded St. John's Prep (18-3) at Prep this Friday at 5 p.m.
