WESTFIELD – The Westfield High School boys’ soccer team ran into a buzzsaw Thursday.
Longmeadow scored two goals in the first 17 minutes en route to a 3-0 win at Westfield High School.
Three different players scored for the Lancers.
“I think we have to credit Longmeadow for this one,” Westfield coach Andrew Joseph said. “They definitely came out flying from the first minute.”
Max Robbins put Longmeadow out front when he took a pass from Car Schirmeister in the seventh minute, and scored. Luke Szotkiewicz hooked up with Will Lukas near the 17th minute for a 2-0 lead.
Logan Haidopoulos made it 3-0 in the early portion of the second half to secure the Lancers’ victory.
Longmeadow entered Thursday’s game having lost to Minnechaug the previous day.
“They were pretty fired up about that,” coach Joseph said of the Lancers. “We just really couldn’t get up to their intensity level.”
The Bombers’ coach said it wasn’t all bad news though.
“We had some chances,” Joseph said. “We just couldn’t finish, but we’ll be back at it.”
