Falcons clip Bombers, 1-0

WILBRAHAM – Liz Mastrio scored the game-winning goal with 24 minutes left to lift Minnechaug past Westfield in a field hockey contest, 1-0.
Westfield dominated the first half of play – the Bombers attempted more than a dozen shots on net – but failed to connect.
“Our forwards gave it a good run,” Westfield coach Karen Gomez said, “but the shots only came close.”
Liz Marcyoniak, Lexi Minicucci, and Ashlee Owen each had shots just fall short.
“We gave it a good effort,” Gomez said. “We need to work on putting two halves of field hockey together. Hopefully we can do that.”
Westfield goalie Karly Mastello made nine shots in net. Minnechaug’s goalkeeper, Katie Patterson finished with 14 saves.
Westfield 3, Minnechaug 1
Westfield’s Miranda Boudreau scored the first goal of the game at 25:57 off a pass from Grace Silva. Silva scored a goal of her own at 8:40 with an assist from Julia Rowbotham. Olivia Chaoush set up teammate Brooke Keeney to net the Lady Bombers’ final goal of the game with only 49 seconds remaining on the clock in the first half.
In the second half, Minnechaug answered back at 14:20.
Rothermel and Alexis Cororan split goalkeeper duties for Westfield to achieve the win and Westfield to achieve the win, and Bombers’ defender Shayna Buchanan made a defensive save in the second half which stopped a sure goal.
Westfield is now 4-1.
