Delaney Parker netted her 100th career goal for the Mahar Regional girls soccer team in a 6-0 win over Pioneer Valley Regional on Friday afternoon at the Woodward Complex in Orange.

The goal came quickly, a minute and a half into the independent game.

Parker carried through the Pioneer defense and unloaded a shot around the 18-yard line. 

The goal will put Parker next to her sister Allyson Parker on a banner in the Mahar gymnasium as the only 100-goal scorers in school history.

“When I saw her get up on that banner, I thought ‘how did she even do that?’” Parker said. “I did not picture me ever getting up there. Now that I made I think it’s really cool that we will be up there together and it will only be us.”

Parker had two goals and two assists against the Panthers.

“Coming into this game, I knew people would be here,” Parker said. “I just wanted to get the goal over with and not have it on my shoulders. Now I can focus on playing for myself and not just for the score.”

The Senators (11-0) face Monson and Gateway next week.

“I think we are doing really well right now,” Parker said. “But I want to work on coming together more as a team. Being comfortable with communicating with each other.”

Carra Fitzgerald had two goals for the Senators while Micalyn Mailloux (assist) and Kendrah Doane each found the net once.

Emi Carfagna assisted on Parker’s second goal.

Maddie Lloyd and Sara Simon combined for five saves for Mahar.

Anna Picard made 10 saves for the Panthers (4-4).

Girls Soccer

Frontier 2, Pope Francis 0 — Playing their third game in four days, the Red Hawks knew stamina would be an issue against the Cardinals. 

They fought through the tired legs, though, as Natalie Denkiewicz scored twice to lead Frontier (6-3-1, 3-2-1) to victory in the independent match in South Deerfield. 

“We were banged up from yesterday,” Red Hawk coach Phil Pittelli said. “It was a good win for our team.” 

Claudia Rajbali and Grace O’Leary picked up assists on the Denkiewicz goals, and Siomara Green made two saves to keep Pope Francis off the scoreboard. 

Lee 2, Mohawk 0 — An injury to goalkeeper Amelie Rowehl in the 40th minute forced the game to come to a stop, as the Warriors didn’t have any subs on the bench. 

Rowehl made 10 saves in net before the injury. 

Athol 4, Smith Academy 0 — Ally Raymond was on fire against the Falcons, scoring all four goals to lead the Red Raiders to victory in an independent match in Hatfield. 

Emma Bacigalupo, Grace Dufour and Emily England picked up assists in the win, while Haley Wrigley made six saves in goal.

Panthers offense comes alive against Sci-Tech

On Monday, Pioneer and Sci-Tech battled to a 0-0 tie in a game neither offense could get anything going. 

That changed when they squared off again on Friday, as the Panthers scored twice, once in each half, while the defense continued to dominate, culminating in a 2-0 victory in a McGrath League game in Northfield. 

“It was a good battle,” Pioneer coach Don Fraser said. “We always play tough games against them.” 

Felix Pruitt-Dahl scored the opening goal off a corner kick, which he blasted into the box, curving into CyberCat Gabriel Camacho who was unable to corral it, knocking it into the net to put the Panthers up in the 35th minute. 

Pioneer didn’t strike again until the 77th minute, as Zephyr Monette scored off a pass from Sam Cahill. 

The Panthers (3-5-2, 3-3-2) have rebounded nicely after a shaky start to the season, with Fraser hoping they can continue their strong play. 

“We’re pulling it together now,” Fraser said. “We had a great game last night and we’re playing our best soccer of the year right now.” 

Mohawk 1, Smith Voke 0 — Like Pioneer, the Warriors faced the Vikings on Monday, with the game ending in a 1-1 tie. 

On Friday, Mohawk (6-5-2) got the score it needed in the 20th minute off the foot of Jaime Colemenjaro, with the assist going to Tyler Dubreuil, and it would stand as the lone goal of the independent contest in Northampton. 

“It was a big game of possession,” Warrior coach Nick Brown said. “Whoever possessed it more was going to come out with the win. The game was won in the midfield.”

Reuben Bassett made nine saves to preserve the shutout. 

Franklin Tech 1, Granby 0 — Sam Lashtur drilled a shot into the corner of the goal off an assist from Tony Barilone, holding as the lone goal of the independent contest in Granby. 

“It was not a very pretty game either way,” Tech coach Kurt Richardson said. “It was really windy down there, field conditions weren’t great, heavy touches both ways. Our defense packed it in and kept them off the board.”

The Eagles (4-4-2, 2-1-2) allowed 10 shots on goal, but Matt Regnier came up with a save on each of them. 

Field Hockey

Vezina unstoppable in Thorndike

Chris Vezina scored four goals, two in each half, as Mahar easily handled Palmer, 6-0, in an independent match. 

The Senators had a 10-1 corner advantage and outshot the Panthers, 10-3. 

“It was nice to see the stuff happening that we’ve been working on,” Mahar coach Laurie Saisa said. “You could see the mood and energy change after our first goal.”

Aileen Fitzgerald and Gracie Marsh found the back of the cage in the win. 

Pioneer 0, Turners 0 — The Thunder had four shots on goal and nine corners while the Panthers had three corners and two shots, but neither team was able to find the back of the cage in an independent game in Turners. 

Haleigh Greene made one save for Turners while Athena Fowler-Shaw had four saves in the scoreless contest. 

Franklin Tech 0, Holyoke 0 — Kyleigh Baleno made 11 saves in cage for the Eagles to keep it a scoreless contest in an independent match in Turners. 

While the defense played a strong game, the offense wasn’t able to generate many chances, finishing with four shots on goal. 

Smith Academy 2, Athol 0 — Two second half goals led the Falcons past the Red Raiders in an independent match in Hatfield. 

Sam Kenniff made 25 saves in goal for Athol. 

Belchertown 2, Mohawk 1 — Iris Moon found Catie Silva for a goal with 13:19 to play, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Warriors fell to the Orioles in an independent match in Belchertown. 

Kordaryl Kendall made 10 saves in goal for Mohawk.

Senators roll past Panthers

Madison Harrington had 10 aces, eight assists and a kill to lead Mahar past Pioneer 25-17, 25-11, 25-13, in a Northern League match in Northfield.

For the Panthers, Lillian Faille had four aces, two kills and three digs, Abby Briggs had three aces and a kll and Emily Tibbetts had two kills and two digs. 

Turners 3, Mohawk 0 — Nobody has been able to slow down the Thunder in the Northern League, and that didn’t change Friday, as Turners came out with a 25-11, 25-7, 25-6 win over the Warriors in Turners. 

Taylor Greene led the way with eight aces, five assists and three kills for the Thunder (10-4, 9-0), while Abby Holloway had five aces and two kills, Isabelle Farrick had six kills, Stephanie Peterson had six aces and two kills and Madison Liimatainen had six aces and a pair of kills.

Both Greenfield and Turners finished with 12 points, but the Green Wave won on a tiebreaker, finishing with a team-total score of 196 to the Thunder’s 197. 

Aidan Bailey shot a match-low 41 for Turners from the No. 3 spot, while Danny Provost had the low score for Greenfield from the No. 4 spot, shooting a 45.
