WESTFIELD – St. Mary rallied from a three-goal deficit with three unanswered goals in the final 30 minutes to force a 3-3 tie against Putnam in a high school boys’ soccer game Tuesday at Westfield Middle School North.
Padraig Horag-Smith started the rally with a goal on a penalty kick.
“He got us on the board and kind of got the momentum going,” St. Mary coach Billy Lamirande said.
Jack Lamirande scored the next two goals for St. Mary, both assisted by Matt Masciadrelli.
“It’s one of those good ties when you’re down 3-0 nothing,” coach Lamirande said. “It just took a little spark from a penalty kick that got the team to wake up.”
St. Mary put the pressure on in the second half, and nearly won it – several shots hit the post.
Jacob Butler preserved the tie with 21 saves, including several key ones down the stretch.
