WESTFIELD – The Westfield High School boys’ soccer team got swept up in a Hurricane Thursday, a lot them, in fact.
The Amherst Hurricanes overwhelmed the Westfield Bombers 6-1 Thursday.
Matt Butera tallied the lone goal for Westfield, a second half score.
“In my opinion, Amherst is the best team in Western Massachusetts by a … margin,” Bombers’ coach Andrew Joseph said. “It wasn’t for lack of effort. It wasn’t for lack of organization, or anything like that. We just got straight up beat.”
Westfield’s Ian Saltmarsh and Ryan Fitzgibbons shared duties in goal.
Said coach Joseph: “The goals that Amherst had were unsaveable.”
After playing its third goal in four games, Westfield will have a chance to catch its collective breath. The Bombers will enjoy three days off before returning to action Monday against Agawam at home at 4 p.m.
