PITTSFIELD -- With a lineup down three regular starters due to injuries, Monument Mountain boys soccer coach Matt Naventi will take whatever points he can get.
"Any points we score in the North, we look at them as a good result," he said after the Spartans' 1-1 tie with Pittsfield at Kirvin Park on Wednesday.
Smit Mahida put the tying goal in the back of the net with 7 minutes, 18 seconds remaining in the match, scoring off a feed from Cam Powell.
"We were pressing before that," Naventi said. "We had a wide-open net and missed. It's just continuing the momentum. It was just a matter of time. If we put a guy in the right spot, we're going to get one."
It's the second time Monument and Pittsfield have tied this season, a result PHS coach Andrew Antil was hoping to avoid.
"We felt we could beat them. We wanted to prove it today," he said. "You have to give credit to them. Their defense was solid, and they kept pushing."
Cesar Miranda's goal in the 49th minute gave Pittsfield a 1-0 lead.

Wahconah 4, Drury 0
NORTH ADAMS -- Kevin Boino's first-half goal was just the beginning for the Warriors, who exploded for two more and assisted on another in the second half.
His second goal -- first of the second half -- gave the Warriors some much-needed breathing room five minutes in. Initially awarded an indirect kick at the top of the 18-yard box, it turned into a direct kick, catching Drury out of position and giving Boino a much easier time.
Wahconah then struck twice midway through the second half in about 30 seconds to put the game out of reach. Drury coach Greg Caproni said the two quick goals were deflating for his team.
"We could always use confidence on our team, especially when we're playing against these bigger [North Division] teams," he said.

Lenox 3, Mount Everett 1
SHEFFIELD -- Grace Fitzgerald's two goals led Lenox to victory Wednesday.
Brooke Morehouse tied the game at 1 for Lenox after her goal midway through the second half.
Tova Brown answered with the go-ahead goal five minutes later. Fitzgerald added her second goal with two minutes left in the game.
Everett coach Jess Tomich said her team played well.
"The scores doesn't really show how the game was played. It could have gone either way," Tomich said. "Up front, we couldn't do anything. We had control of the ball for a majority of the first half but we couldn't score."

Hoosac 6, St. Joe 1
CHESHIRE -- Courtney Hayer wasn't in her usual position on Wednesday, but it turned out just fine.
The captain typically plays sweeper, serving as the team's last line of defense, but played striker against St. Joseph and registered a hat trick in Hoosac's 6-1 Western Mass. berth-clinching win.
"It gets us pumped," coach Blair Mahar said of secruing a spot so early. "I think it's the earliest we've ever clinched. We get better and better every year."
