WESTFIELD – The road for the Westfield High School boys’ soccer team just got a bit rockier.
Westfield had multiple scoring opportunities Monday against Agawam, but none of the shots would fall as the two teams battled to a 0-0 tie. The Bombers must now go 3-0-1 over their final four games to qualify for the Western Massachusetts Division I tournament.
“We had plenty of chances in the second half,” said Westfield coach Gabe Crane, whose team started slow but gained steam later in the first half. “I thought we had a couple of goals. They just didn’t fall in the back of the net.
“Our battle continues,” Crane added. “We have no more for losses in our schedule.”
