Ryan Cote shot a match-low score of 41 to lead the Greenfield High School golf team over Smith Academy, 23-1, in a Bi-County East match played at the Country Club of Greenfield. 

The win continues Greenfield’s dominant start to the season, as the Green Wave improved to a perfect 4-0 and are looking like the class of the Bi-County East at this point.

Cote’s 41 narrowly topped Smith Academy’s Dan Cavanaugh’s score of 43 in the No. 1 position. 

Gabe Larouche shot a 46 to win the No. 2 matchup while Hunter Roberts and Dylan Archer both shot a 51 to win the No. 3 and No. 4 matchup, respectively.

Jake Cote shot a 47 in the No. 5 spot and Danny Provost shot a 49 from the No. 6 spot, neither of which faced an opponent.

Frontier 24, Hampshire 0 — In its first home match of the season at Cherry Hill Golf Course in Amherst, Frontier won all six matches in a dominating performance. 

Mikey Corduff and Kyle Maynard both shot a match-low 36 while Gunnar Moore fired a 39. Bryan Baumann and Rowan Blair each shot 40 and Porter Clancy carded a 46. 

“It was good to be back on our home turf,” Frontier coach Bill Fitzpatrick said. “The advantage we have is we know the course. We’ve had to go on the road and learn a bunch of different courses the past few weeks.”

Hopkins Academy 14, Mahar 10 – The Senators lost at Hickory Ridge Golf Club in a Suburban West contest in Amherst.

Dillon Young picked up a win in the No. 5 spot for the Senators, shooting a 57.

Big second half lifts Red Hawks past Hopkins

Three second-half goals powered Frontier past Hopkins, 4-2, in a Pioneer North game played Monday in Hadley. 

Jessica Wrisley opened the scoring for the Red Hawks in the 32nd minute off an assist from Alena Maes-Polan before the visitors opened things up in the final 40 minutes of play.

Isabelle Marrapeese scored in the 52nd minute, with the assist going to Natalie Denkiewicz, and Kylie Laford tacked on the third goal in the 72nd minute off an assist from Victoria Speth.

Denkiewicz then scored in the 75th minute to secure the win, as Hopkins had added two second-half goals to stay in the contest.

The Red Hawks held a 17-9 shot advantage in the game, which led Phil Pittelli feeling as though his team left some goals out there.

“We didn’t have a great first half,” Pitteli said. “We were trying to get adjusted to their grass. We had our chances, definitely outscored them but couldn’t connect. The second half was better, we moved the ball around and connected on some shots.”

Pioneer 5, Smith Academy 1 — Five different Pioneer players scored in what was a dominant all-around performance for the Panthers against Smith Academy.

Pioneer possessed the ball for 70-percent of the game and held a 20-5 shot advantage at the game’s conclusion. 

The Falcons scored the opening goal of the game in the 12th minute, but it was all Panthers from that point forward. 

Lucia Saviano scored in the 23rd minute followed by a goal from Azemina Cecunjanin in the 28th minute. 

Just one minute later, Laila Heilman found the back of the net and suddenly Pioneer held a 3-1 lead. 

That score held into the half, but in the second minute of the final 40 minutes of play, Paige Loughman netted a goal. Cecunjanin scored her second of the game in the 57th minute to put a cap on the win. 

Cecunjanin, Saviano, Sarah Johnson and Tayla Sadlowski picked up assists in the win.  

Smith Voke 3, Mohawk 0 — Madison Clark scored a pair of goals and Emily Bryant added another to lead Smith Voke past Mohawk in a Pioneer South game played in Buckland. 

The Vikings struck first in the first half of play, before adding a pair of goals in the final 40 minutes. 

Amelie Rowehl made 11 saves in net before leaving for injury in the second half. Lillian VanVleet came on in relief to make five saves. 

Pope Francis 6, Franklin Tech 0 — Lily Turnel scored a hat trick to propel Pope Francis to victory. 

Pope Francis scored three in the second half, outshooting Franklin Tech 21-1 in the game. 

Emily Merritt made 15 saves in goal for the Eagles.

Colemenjaro’s late goal seals Mohawk Trail win

With the game knotted in the 76th minute, it looked like Mohawk Trail and McCann Tech were headed toward a draw. 

That was until Oscar Cassin sent a ball into the box that was mishandled by McCann keeper Andrew Levesque, who lost the ball in the sun. 

With the ball laying in the box, Jaime Colemenjaro came in and chipped it into the net for the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory on Monday.

“It was a good win, very hard-fought,” Warriors coach Nick Brown said. “We had some defensive issues in the first half, straightened out in the second. They played hard.”

Cassin scored in the 17th minute, but the Hornets answered four minutes later with a goal from Ivan Liang.

Tyler Dubreuil put Mohawk ahead in the 38th minute off an assist from Colemenjaro, with McCann evening it up in the 55th minute off the foot of Michael Harris.

In an evenly-played match, the Warriors barely outshot McCann, 20-19.

Mahar 7, Palmer 0 – Contributions from throughout the roster have made the Senators particularly dangerous to start the season.

Mahar was at it again on Monday, using goals from five different players to blank Palmer in an independent game on the road at Legion Field.

“I’ve been trying to get a lot of playing time for our freshmen and sophomores and it’s been awesome to see the support from our upperclassmen,” Mahar coach Dan Guertin said. “The whole team morale has been great to start the year.”

Freshman Gavin Sullivan scored twice to support the cause from the underclass ranks. Sophomore Liam O’Donnell also tallied after moving up from defense.

Riley Drew added two goals in the win for the Senators (5-0), while James Temple and Andrew Herk also tallied. The visitors led 5-0 at halftime. Logan Dodge made 10 saves for the shutout.

“Everything starts with our defense right now,” said Guertin. “It’s driving our games this year.”

The Senators face a decent test on the road against today when they visit McGrath Division foe Sabis.
