NORTH ADAMS -- With two pivotal games the next two days, Hornets coach Tom Bona played his starters sparingly. They took full advantage of their time on the field in fueling a 7-0 Hornets win over Pathfinder on Tuesday afternoon.
Shane Fuller, Damon Couture and Josh Budaj combined for five points on three goals in less than 5 minutes in the opening 15 minutes. They then found spots on the bench for the next 10 minutes before registering four more points on the final two goals of the first half, giving McCann a 5-0 lead at halftime.
"They worked the ball, probably one of the better games that they really settled and moved the ball around," Bona said. "They concentrated on worked that in practice [Monday].
"I was glad they put them in, so I could give them breaks."
Fuller led the way in the first half with three goals and an assist; he finished with four goals and an assist. Couture had one goal and three helpers. Chris Gajda who made six saves for McCann also scored a goal when he spent time in the field.
McCann plays Ware, who is undefeated in the league, today, and Commerce, who is undefeated in the division Thursday.

"They had some good chances on us but we had our chances," he said. "It was a big [South] Division game for us."
Greylock girls’ soccer
WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Mounties pulled away from Lee for a 6-1 victory after letting their guard down for a brief moment early in the first half.
Lee’s Nicole Belliveau tied the score at 1 less than 9 minutes into the game, but Greylock’s Sophie Leamon put the Mounties up for good 3:12 later. Miranda Bucky gave Greylock a comfortable 3-1 lead midway through the opening half with her second goal.
"Good to see the front line working well," Greylock coach Tom Ostheimer said. "I thought Miranda and Sophie had some great exchanges. Miranda controlled the middle of the field and forced the defense to make some tough decisions."
Bucky finished with two goals and two assists, while Kelsey Orpin had a goal and two assists.

DALTON -- Goals by Emmy Cote and Jocelyn Hill kept host Wahconah (5-6-1) on target for a possible Western Massachusetts tournament berth with a 2-0 win over Drury. The Warriors need five points in four remaining games to qualify.
"Drury was well-coached," Wahconah coach Pat West said. "We feel like we have to win. We’ve been talking about it for two games."
The game-winning goal came with 1:36 left in the first half. Wahconah’s Bridget Lussier broke in on goal and sent a pass to Cote as Lussier and Drury goalie Allison Meehan tangled. Cote scored and the Warriors never trailed.

LENOX -- Cali Romaniak’s direct-kick goal in the 68th minute capped off a two-goal comeback for the visiting Hurricanes, earning them a 2-2 tie with Lenox.
"Credit to Hoosac for turning up the pressure" late in the second half, Lenox coach Kyle Zinchuk said.
After a scoreless first half, Lenox’s Tova Brown got goals in the 55th and 57th minute before Alex Rousseau made it 2-1 in the 65th minute.
On the restart, Romaniak took a shot from 35 yards out that snuck over Lenox goalkeeper Lindsey Kelly and under the crossbar.

SHELBURNE FALLS -- With their top two runners banged up, the Hornets weren’t able to overtake a talented Mohawk squad. The boys lost 26-31, while the four-runner girls’ team suffered a 15-44 defeat.
Zoe Loughman, battling a muscle strain, finished sixth overall, which means Mohawk swept the top five spots.
"They’re runners were scary, actually, off the line," coach Todd Hamilton said.
Justin Schneider was nursing a hip pointer but finished the boys’ race third overall in 16:14, just seven seconds off first place.
"I told both to just see how [the injury] is, not to push anything," Hamilton said. "It’s better to lay back and give up a position or two than to sacrifice goals at the end of the year."
Lukas Yelle also earned a top-five finish with a time of 16:55.
