Tuesday's soccer: Pittsfield, Lenox boys tie; McCann girls hang on

Wednesday September 26, 2012

LENOX -- Pittsfield High School and Lenox's boys traded first-half goals in a 1-1 tie on Tuesday night.

"We gave up a really early goal to them," said Lenox coach Scott Chadwick. "And although we outplayed them over the next 10 minutes or so, we couldn't score. We finally ot a goal late in the half."

Chadwick said the second half was "a lot of back-and-forth. We wasted a couple of good chances."

The Millionaires outshot Pittsfield 17-10.


Pittsfield 1 0 -- 1

Lenox 1 0 -- 1

P -- Darrien Chambers (Claudio Velez) 4:06

L -- Andrew Vickery (Alex Pratt) 3;31

Saves: Lenox -- Trevor Hathaway 6, Pittsfield -- Harrison Rapant 9.

Westfield 7, Taconic 0

WESTFIELD -- The Braves fell behind and never recovered.

"We didn't show up," said Taconic coach John Flynn. "They're a decent team, but we played very poorly. We started the game with bus legs and never lost them."

Christina Walser had five saves for the Braves (1-3). Julianna Sharon had three goals for the hosts (3-2-1), who led 3-0 at intermission.

McCann 4, St. Mary's 3

WESTFIELD -- After an emotional game Monday, the Hornets fell behind midway through the first half to St. Mary's. Then Mary Nguyen scored a pair of goals to take her team into halftime with a one-goal lead, which it ran out to three before winning 4-3.

"We played very well," coach Mike Dowling said. "The defense is starting to come along."

Nguyen, who scored her 100th point in Monday's win, tallied her 101st and 102nd on goals just eight minutes apart in the first half. On the backside of the break, the Hornets were ready to remain unbeaten and proved it. They scored two more goals, the second coming with 13 minutes to play gave the Hornets a comfortable lead.

It was almost a little too comfortable. Dowling used the lead as a chance to give his starters a break because of the team's four games this week. St. Mary's responded with two goals with less than five minutes to play to close within one. The starters went back in and shut the door.
