Monday's lacrosse: Pittsfield boys beat Hoosac Valley


CHESHIRE -- The Pittsfield High School boys lacrosse team needed an awakening against Hoosac Valley on Monday.

Nursing a three-goal halftime lead, Pittsfield exploded for five goals in less than six minutes to run away from the Hurricanes 14-6. A timeout and some words in the third quarter from coach Scott Aitken seemed to ignite Pittsfield.

"They started realizing that moving the ball, little bit of patience and they would find the open guys and then take advantage of those chances," Aitken said. "When they were just forcing it and rushing it, it was just too sloppy."

Dan Tagliaferro had five goals and two assists for the Generals while Ryan Jacoby had five assists -- including on three straight goals in the third.

Hoosac was led by five goals from Stephin Wallace.

"We're going to get there," said Hurricanes coach John Duval. "We just got to work harder, come together as a team. There's no question that we can compete with this team."
