It was wet, dreary and downright miserable day — not a great day for offense.
Greenfield High School and Pioneer Valley Regional School battled for 80 minutes and couldn’t find the net on any of their shots as the teams settled for a scoreless draw in a Franklin County League girls’ soccer match Wednesday in Northfield.
The Panthers (0-9-4 overall, 0-4-3 FCL) dominated territorial play and held a 12-1 edge in shots but Green Wave keeper Allie Roe kept them off the board by making five saves.
Jocelyn Carney didn’t need to make a save in the Pioneer net for her shutout.
Greenfield is now 1-9-1 (1-6-1 FCL.)

Turners 7, Mahar 2 — Melvin Moreno’s natural hat trick in the first half propelled Turners Falls to a 7-2 McGrath Division North win over Mahar Regional School in boys’ soccer play Wednesday on the FieldTurf in Orange.
Moreno’s three markers were offset only by Pedro Matos’ tally for the Senators, giving the Indains a 3-1 halftime advantage.
Dennis Gheorghita, Wyatt Bourbeau, Emmett Turn and Luca Garavaglia scored second-half goals for Turners (10-3-0, 5-0-0 FCL).
Cam Marshall, who assisted on Matos’ goal, tallied in the second half for Mahar (1-10-0, 0-5-0).
Athol 6, Easthampton 0 — Bradley Bousquet continued his torrid scoring pace of late by scoring four times in Athol High School’s 6-0 Schmid Division victory over Easthampton High School in boys’ soccer action Wednesday in Easthampton.
Alex Page’s goal in the 17th minute set the stage for Bousquet, who scored two goals before intermission and twice more in the second half. He now has eight goals in the past two games.
Bousquet also assisted on Jamie Posk’s tally. Tyler Guerin and Tyler Lajoie both recorded a pair of assists for the Red Raiders, who outshot the Eagles 31-4.
Athol goalkeeper Garrett Hall made two saves to earn the shutout.

Palmer 5, Frontier 0 — Troy Remillard assisted on four goals as Palmer High School blanked Frontier Regional School, 5-0, in a Schmid Division boys’ soccer contest Wednesday at Herlihy Park in Whately.
Eric Droz tallied the only goal of the first half, but the Panthers (4-2-5, 4-0-2 Schmid) took advantage of the Red Hawks’ depleted back line (two starting defenders missed the game due to injuries), as Ryan Almeida scored twice and Austin Pedro and Ryan Mastriani added markers in the second half.
Palmer outshot Frontier, 12-8. Owen Roche earned the shutout by making three saves, while Shawn Mazur-Garcia had four stops for the Red Hawks.
Frontier (0-11-1) hosts Easthampton on Friday at 3:30.
Four Rivers 8, White Oak 1 — Four Rivers Charter School exploded for seven goals in the second half to pull away from winless White Oak School, 8-1, in a River Valley Athletic League game Wednesday in the Greenfield Meadows.
