Victoria Marin scored two goals and added an assist as Greenfield High School earned its third straight victory with a 3-1 win over Mohawk in a Pioneer South division girls soccer match Friday in Greenfield.

The Green Wave entered the season without a win since the 2015 campaign, but after a loss to Ware High School to open the season, Greenfield has tallied six goals and held its opponents to two scores during the three match win streak.

“The girls are really excited,” said Green Wave head coach Tina Riddell. “The girls are learning what it takes and what it requires to win games and that has showed in our play.”

Greenfield (3-1-1) opened the scoring in the 3rd minute as Eva Pruitt-Dahl took a pass from Marin and slotted a shot past Mohawk goalkeeper Amelia Rowehl for the early 1-0 lead. Marin spotted the Green Wave a 2-0 lead right before the half on an unassisted goal.

Mohawk (1-2-1) edged closer coming out of halftime as Liliana Manley found the back of the net on a pass from Sage Spitzer, 17 minutes into the half to cut the Green Wave lead to a single goal. 

Marin then secured the victory for Greenfield, 3 minutes later with another unassisted goal giving the sophomore 4 goals on the young season. 

Dina Samake played well in net for Greenfield turning away 10 shots while Rowehl blocked 4 shots for the Warriors.  

Mahar 6, Pope Francis 0 — Behind a hat trick from Delaney Parker and a trio of assists from Emma Savoy, Mahar breezed to a 6-0 win over Pope Francis in a Pioneer North girls soccer game Friday afternoon in Orange.

Mahar (3-1, 3-0) stormed out to a 4-0 halftime lead and finished with a commanding 28-3 advantage in shots.

“I thought was a pretty good effort today from the ladies,” Mahar coach Chad Softic said. “With the crazy weather it was nice to get back to a routine this week and we had two really good practices and it showed.”

Micalyn Mailloux got the scoring started 12 minutes into the game, while Parker had two of her three goals in the first half and Tori Tenney also tallied before intermission.

Natalie Belloli and Parker found the back of the net early in the second half to put things out of reach.

Marie Nottleson made one save to pick up the shutout in net for the Senators.

FC Tech 2, Putnam 0 — Emmalee Dobosz tallied 25 minutes into the game, and Jocelyn Crowningshield added an insurance strike midway through the second half to send Franklin Tech to a tidy 2-0 win over Putnam in a Tri-County League girls soccer game Friday in Turners Falls.

Brooke Adams and Maralee Wiles had the assists for the Eagles, which improved to 2-1 on the season and 2-1 in the TCL.

Emily Merritt recorded 5 saves in the Franklin Tech goal to capture a shutout, as the Eagles held a tight 6-5 edge in shots.

“We’re not quite playing 80 minutes of soccer but we’re getting closer,” Franklin Tech coach Dan Prasol said. “If we’re going to keep winning games, we can’t get complacent.”

The Eagles have a difficult schedule of games next week, beginning with a road trip to Hampden Charter Tuesday.

South Hadley 2, Frontier 2 — Lily Spencer and Olivia Vecellio each tallied goals for Frontier Regional School but it was South Hadley High School that scored two second half goals to help the Tigers comeback to secure a 2-2 tie with the Red Hawks in a Valley League field hockey game Friday in South Deerfield.

Frontier (2-0-1) came out playing aggressively as both Spencer and Vecellio tallied first half goals to give the Red Hawks a 2-0 halftime lead. From there South Hadley (3-1-1) came storming back as Olivia Wilson and Gabi Maroney each registered goals helping the Tigers earn a point with the tie.

“I thought we carried play and had a very good first half,” said Frontier coach Missy Maher. “Our offense started the game playing well as our midfield controlled play but South Hadley was able to turn the momentum in the second half with an early goal and they had us on our heels from there.” 

Skyla Burniski played well in net for Frontier turning away 9 shots in the contest while Brooke Blair blocked 11 shots for South Hadley.

The Red Hawks travel to face East Longmeadow High School Monday night at 7:00 p.m.

“Our spacing and ball movement gave us a strong offensive presence tonight,” said Green Wave coach Erin Thayer. “We were able to create space on offense and I thought the girls played extremely well tonight.” 

Freshmen Lucy Postera and Mady Kuchieski each had assists for the Green Wave in support of goalie Samantha Smith who stopped 6 shots in the win.
