ella quinto catches a pop up

Ella Quinto and Wahconah dispatched Chicopee 12-0 on Tuesday in a Western Mass quarterfinal game.

DALTON — The scoreboard recorded a run-rule victory. Wahconah softball coach Dustin Belcher and his team knew, however, that it wasn't quite as easy as the final score indicates.

"You've got to find all different ways to win in the tournament," Belcher said after the second-seeded Warriors eliminated Chicopee from the Western Massachusetts Class B Tournament, with a 12-0 quarterfinal win Tuesday night at Pine Grove Park.
