PITTSFIELD — Matt Miller’s goal off a set play with 15 minutes left in the first half was the game’s only goal, as Pittsfield beat Mount Greylock 1-0 Thursday night at Berkshire Community College, handing the Mounties (3-1-1) their first loss of the season.
Luke Peplowski started the play for PHS (3-0-0), chipping past the Mount Greylock wall toward Miller, who ran on the ball and put a low shot through goalkeeper Oscar Low’s legs.
The indirect free kick was set up when Greylock defender Josh Polumbo was whistled for a headball. Under the Covid-19 rules adjustments for soccer, players are not allowed to use their heads to play the ball. That’s why the indirect free kick was awarded.
Pittsfield goalkeeper Will Kinne made two saves, recording his second shutout in three games. The Mounties turned up the pressure in the second half, but the Generals’ back line didn’t allow Kinne to be that busy.
Low had six saves for Greylock. He has given up two goals in four games.
