Dowers helps Gators’ bid

SPRINGFIELD – A tie was not such a bad thing for one local sports team.
The Gateway Regional High School boys’ soccer team rallied for a game-tying goal in the final minute to run its record to 8-2-2 to secure a Western Massachusetts Division III tournament berth. Calvin Dowers scored the last-minute goal on a pass from Justin Edinger in the pouring rain to force a 2-2 tie against Renaissance.
It was a marked improvement for Gateway, who lost to Renaissance 2-0 two weeks ago.
Gateway goalie Mike Arel finished with six saves.
