Two players battle for the ball

Lenox's Sam Schnopp tries to get the ball from Monument's Jackson Potoski during a game earlier this season. Both the Millionaires and Spartans advanced in the Western Mass. tournaments on Monday.

WESTFIELD — The Spartans didn’t exactly play the part of No. 6 seeds in an opening-round road match at third-seeded St. Mary’s on Monday night.

Instead, Monument Mountain dominated play and rolled over the Saints 9-0 to advance into the semifinal round of the Western Mass. Class B tournament.

Jackson Potoski scored twice, while Eddie Boyko, Tyler Sprague and Will Curtiss all notched a goal and an assist each. Sam Higa had two helpers, and Luke Arienti needed to make just one save in the Spartans net for a postseason clean sheet.

Things will get exponentially more difficult for coach Matt Naventi’s club on Wednesday, however, as they will have to hit the road against to face No. 2 Hampshire. Hampshire is coming off a shutout of its own, 5-0 over a Wahconah team that recently battled the Spartans to a draw.
