Delaney Parker brought her A-game to the field for Mahar Regional School on Tuesday. 

The junior scored six goals, two in the first half and four in the second half, to lead the Senators past Drury, 6-2, in an independent girls soccer game played in Orange. 

“Delaney is just dangerous from everywhere,” Mahar coach Chad Softic said. “We have a lot of young kids stepping up and it’s exciting to see.” 

Jacqueline Moulton scored the opening goal of the game for the Blue Devils, but Parker answered with the assist going to Micalyn Mailloux to tie the game.

Kayla McGrath put Drury in control with 15 minutes left in the first half, but one minute later, Parker scored off an assist from Siena Moore to make it 2-2 going into the halftime break. 

“We came out flat and tired after our emotional win (Monday night) against Gateway,” Softic said, “but we hung in there and grinded it out today which is good experience for a young team.”

Parker’s first goal of the second half came in the 58th minute with the assist from MaryAnne Prescott. 

She scored her second 12 minutes later off an assist from Moore, her third in the 71st minute off an assist from Gracie Rich and her last in the 74th minute.

While Parker was scoring the goals, two players stood out to Softic who didn’t show up on the scoresheet. 

“I thought Natalie Beloli over the last two games with man-marking and controlling our back third has been huge for us,” the coach said. “Carra Fitzgerald has really solidified our midfield.”

Lashtur, Eagles stay hot

Chalk up three more goals for Sam Lashtur.

The Franklin Tech freshman netted another hat trick on Tuesday, and the hosts took a 4-0 lead just 12 minutes into regulation en route to a 6-2 win over Duggan Academy.

Lashtur, who notched a hat trick last week in his varsity debut, has continued to find the back of the net early and often for Tech (2-0-1), which remained undefeated through three games with the Tri-County League win. Jake Burnett started the scoring in the third minute, before Lashtur, Colin Adams and Eugene Buford added first-half goals. Lashtur tallied twice after intermission to put things away after Duggan had cut the deficit to 4-2. Matt Regnier made five saves in the Eagles’ net.

• Paul Whalley scored a goal four minutes in to put Frontier down early against Southwick, with the goal standing as the lone scoring in the contest, as the Red Hawks fell 1-0 in an independent mach played in South Deerfield. 

Frontier didn’t bring the energy needed in the game, leaving Red Hawk coach Evan Horton frustrated with the result. 

“We didn’t show up to play a soccer game,” Horton said. “They came to play and we didn't.” 

• Three first half goals propelled Mahar past Greenfield, 4-0, in a McGrath League game played at Greenfield High School. 

Riley Drew opened the scoring for the Senators, scoring in the fourth minute of the contest. 

Charlie Anderson followed Drew’s goal up with a pair of goals himself, coming in the 15th and 32nd minute of the first half, the third being assisted by Drew, who send one into the box after a breakaway which Anderson ripped into the net. 

The Senators final goal came in the foot of Cam Gadarowski. 

• The visiting Pioneer Valley Regional boys soccer team scored a second-half goal to snag a 2-2 draw with Smith Academy in a McGrath Division contest.

Brad Norwood and Felix Pruitt-Dahl were the goal-scorers for the Panthers (0-0-1), which trailed 2-1 at halftime. Goalkeeper Nate Cosme recorded five saves in the Pioneer net.
