WESTFIELD – The Westfield High School boys’ soccer team avoided the dreaded “letdown” game, following up a dramatic comeback with a sound victory.
Dante White recorded his second hat trick of the season, scoring three goals to lead Westfield past visiting Chicopee Comp 4-1 Wednesday.
Eric Shilyuk also scored for the Bombers.
“I was a little bit worried after that last-minute win against Agawam on Monday,” Westfield coach Andrew Joseph said. “I thought we were going to kind of dwell on that and not be ready for this game, but we were.”
Westfield scored three goals in a 52-second span with less than four minutes remaining in regulation Monday to stun Agawam 3-2. On Wednesday, the Bombers took control from the outset.
Ian Saltmarsh finished with two saves against the Colts.
Said coach Joseph: “We got two very important league points.”
