CHESHIRE -- Emily Rosse had a triple-double with game-high totals in points (23), rebounds (14) and steals (12), as the Hurricanes improved to 10-3 and qualified for the Western Massachusetts Division II tournament with a 46-38 win over Monument at home.
The Hurricanes never trailed, but never really took control of the game. Hoosac made clutch free throws down the stretch to hold the Spartans off.
It was the first time the Hurricanes were able to take a cushion and finish off an opponent this year. They had either won games by a point or two or by a big margin.
"It was a good game for us to have to do the little things you need to win a game like this," said Hoosac coach Ron Wojcik.
Jen Gale chipped in with 11 points for Hoosac.

WILLIAMSTOWN -- Lucy Barrett dropped 26 points on Wahconah, but it wasn’t enough to propel the Mounties to a win. They lost 58-42.
Up by three at halftime, Wahconah pulled away in the second half. Gabby Lavinio had 10 while Maddie Sprague scored a team-high 18 points.
"We know we have to improve defensively," said Greylock coach Paul Barrett. "They didn’t have to hit all that many from the outside."
McCann girls’ basketball
SHEFFIELD -- McCann’s Mary Nguyen was held 10 points under her average and the Hornets score no more than five points in any quarter in a 35-16 loss to Mount Everett.
"I can’t speak enough about what Natasha MacLeay and India Ward did [defensively]," said Everett coach Scott Rote. "To hold [Nguyen] to four points is pretty good. We knew if we could play her hard we’d have a chance."
McCann boys’ basketball
SPRINGFIELD -- The Hornets wasted little time in taking care of business on the road, 54-44 over Pioneer Valley Christian School.
McCann opened a four point lead in the first quarter before sending in the second unit. And that’s when the Hornets took over. From that point until halftime, McCann outscored the hosts 18-4 to enjoy a 18-point lead. PVCS closed the gap with a 22-point fourth quarter but never seriously threatened.
"My second unit went in and gave us a big lift," coach Mike Nykorchuck said. "They played pretty good defense. We held them to two points in the second quarter. We went to zone with second unit and [PVCS] struggled."
Anthony Duprat had matched a team-high 11 points off the bench. Cody O’Neill had seven points and nine rebounds in less than half a game.
Williams women’s hockey
WILLIAMSTOWN -- There wasn’t much offense, but Gabrielle Vukasin’s goal with 1 minute, 20 seconds left in overtime provided plenty of excitement for the Ephs, as they picked up a 2-1 win.
Castleton needed a goal at 13:38 of the third period to force overtime because of a Sam Weinstein power-play tally in the second period.
Rachel Nguyen made 27 saves for the Ephs.
SPRINGFIELD -- The Warriors had a first period to forget against Ludlow, allowing six goals in a 6 minute, 24 second-span before getting their first. They played even the rest of the way, but still lost 11-6.
Ryan Ouimet and Lane Grogan each had two goals and two assists for Wahconah. Nick Montferret had a goal and 2 assists.
