It was a first-half scoring barrage for the Greenfield girls soccer team on Tuesday. 

The host Green Wave lit up the scoreboard seven times in the first 40 minutes of action en route to a 9-0 shutout of Athol. 

In the first half alone, Victoria Marin had a hat trick while Emma Savoy scored twice and adding three assists.

“It was an overall team effort,” Greenfield coach Tina Riddell said. “We’re finally coming together and playing like a team which is amazing to see the transformation from individualism to teamwork. The passing and movement without the ball has greatly improved this season.” 

Carly Blanchard got the scoring going four minutes in for the Green Wave, with Savoy picking up the assist. Three minutes later Azemina Cecunjanin found the back of the net off an assist from Marin. 

Marin scored the next three goals, with Savoy earning assists on the first two and Katie Haselton recording the assist on the third. 

Savoy closed out the half with a pair of goals in the final 10 minutes, the first off a pass from Kaitlin Lavoine and the second off a dish from Blanchard. 

Eva Pruitt-Dahl struck 16 minutes into the second half off a pass from Blanchard and Jess Mihailicenco closed out the scoring with 15 minutes to play off an assist from Aquinnah Mass. 

Jenna Bonenfant faced 31 shots in goal for the Bears, making 19 saves. Makayla Valente made three saves and Kylee Gamache came on in relief and stopped one shot for the Green Wave. 

Frontier 3, Hopkins 1 — The Redhawks put two in the back of the net in the first half and tallied a third in the second half to earn a 3-1 win over the Golden Hawks on Thursday in South Deerfield.

Cambrie Hamilton scored the first goal for Frontier, putting one home in the second minute off an assist from Hannah Mackin. 

Freshman Madeline Barnett tallied the second goal for the Redhawks, scoring in the 16th minute off a pass from Grace O’Leary. 

O’Leary put Frontier up 3-0 in the 52nd minute, shooting the corner kick directly into the goal. Helen Vissas had the lone strike for Hopkins, scoring in the 60th minute with the assist going to Tia Fyden. 

C.C. Green stopped eight shots in goal for the Redhawks.

Pioneer 3, Mohawk Trail 2 — Coming out of the halftime break trailing 2-1, the Panthers played like a team with its hair on fire. 

Pioneer put two goals in during the first six minutes of the second half and held strong on defense the rest of the way to earn a 3-2 win in Buckland on Tuesday. 

“It was a hard fought game,” Warriors coach Nick Brown said. “It was a tough one, it was very evenly played. It came down to the final few minutes and both teams had a lot of chances throughout.”

Josh Glazier was credited with the opening goal of the second half for the Panthers, which scored on an own-goal one minute in to even the contest 2-2. 

Glazier struck again five minutes later, blasting one home off a volley in front of the net for what turned out to be the game-winner. 

Keeman Ramirez lit up the scoreboard 11 minutes in for Mohawk Trail, finishing off a pass from Tyler Dubreuil. The assist gave Dubreuil his 50th varsity point. 

The lead didn’t last long for the Warriors, as Trey Fraser put a shot just past the outstretched arms of Mohawk Trail keeper Reuben Bassett to tie the game 1-1 in the 16th minute. Kurt Redeker picked up an assist on the play. 

Ramirez scored his second with eight minutes to go in the first half, firing in a direct kick from 35 yards out that went bar down. 

Bassett made 12 saves in the loss for the Warriors while Pioneer’s Zach Piescik made seven saves. 

Greenfield 6, Athol 0 — Dante Ruggiano and Henry Zaccara each scored a pair of goals to propel the Green Wave to a 6-0 triump over the host Bears on Tuesday. 

Ruggiano opened the scoring in the first half off an assist from Caleb Duncan. Zaccara then scored the next two, the first off an assist from Ruggiano and the second unassisted, before Ricardo Romero found the back of the net to send Greenfield into the halftime break with a 4-0 lead. 

Ruggiano scored to start the second half off a dish from Zaccara. Green Wave sweeper Alex Carballo moved to a forward spot and scored a goal late, with the assist from Keegan Doty-Smith. 

Carballo had four saves in the first half, with Matt Lavoine making one save in relief. Holden Girouard made 12 saves for Athol.
