Tigers blank Smith

WESTFIELD – The Westfield Vocational-Technical High School team proved its 2014 season was no fluke.
Voc-Tech, fresh off a state small vocational championship, opened with a rousing 3-0 win over Smith Voke at Jachym Field Friday.
Dmitriy Stepanchuk scored two goals to lead Voc-Tech (1-0). Stepanchuk opened the scoring in the 25th minute on a pass from John Goretskiy. He tallied his second score on Dominic Rosario’s pass late in the second half.
Rosario made it 2-0 early in the second half on an unassisted effort.
Vitaliy Covileac (6 saves) earned a shutout in net for the Tigers.
“We played pretty well,” Westfield Voc-Tech coach Kyle Dulude said. “We dominated a lot of possessions.”
Westfield boasts a bevy of talent this season with 25 rostered players, including 10 seniors, eight juniors, five sophomores, and three freshmen.
“Soccer is very popular at the school now,” Dulude said, noting the support of administration, parents, friends, and other members of the student body in attendance at Friday’s game.
“I think the success of last year is getting the kids out this year,” Dulude said. “We have a lot of numbers which is nice.”
Voc-Tech will look to keep the good times rolling next week when it takes on Commerce Monday at Jachym Field at 4 p.m.
