McCann 2, Franklin Tech 0

NORTH ADAMS -- Playing 35-minute halves against a team that fielded just nine players, Hornets coach Adam Kozik played all 23 available players in each half.

It was difficult for players to find rhythm, but Shane Fuller scored and assisted on the other in a 2-0 Tri-County II win for McCann.

Chad Raimer opened the scoring 17:18 into the game off a feed from Fuller. Fuller then gave McCann some breathing room with 2:01 remaining, with the assist going to Chris Gajda. P.J. Laliberte made five saves in net. The four defenders and Laliberte saw the most action.

Greylock 4, Hampden 0

WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Mounties swept the season series with Hampden Charter with a 4-0 win on their home field.

Again, the game provided Greylock’s youth a chance to play some varsity minutes. Felix Kershaw, an eighth grader, made good use of his time, scoring two first-half goals to stake the Mounties to a 3-0 lead through the first 40 minutes.

"Felix is a talented young player, and his skill was on display throughout the game," coach Blair Dils wrote in an email. "For an eighth grader, he’s an extremely polished player whose knowledge of the game is excellent. He had two very smooth finishes today."
