Drury earns first win
NORTH ADAMS -- Ryan Ouimet scored two second-half goals to fuel the Drury's first win of the season, a 4-2 victory over Mount Everett.
Ouimet scored in the 47th minute off a pass from Cam Lesure (who scored the next goal) and again 25 minutes later for some extra insurance with the assist credited to Jacob Groves (who scored the game's first goal).
"The kids are really starting to come together," coach Greg Caproni said.
He added that his message to the team before the game was to put its efforts from the last three games together. It did and it proved successful.

SPRINGFIELD -- The Wildcats (4-3-1) rebounded from a pair of tough losses with a big road win, thanks to a pair of goals from Victoria Murphy.
"We had a great practice [Tuesday] and turned a lot of things around," Lee coach Lauren Finnegan said. ‘We needed this win."
The Wildcats tied the score on the first of Murphy's goals. The Lee striker took a nice pass from right wing Stephanie Young four minutes into the second half and scored the game-winning goal. Murphy was just inside the box and tucked the ball inside the lower-left post.
