WILLIAMSTOWN -- Coach Lindsey von Holtz didn't need to worry. Upstart Chicopee Comp was no match for her experienced group, and the Mounties cruised to a 14-2 season-opening win Friday.
Maggie Rorke and Emily Sabin led the charge with a hat trick apiece, but the Mounties had eight different goal scorers in all.
"When [the offense] ran the plays, they ran them well," she said, noting it scored on one play in particular all three times it ran it.
The one trouble spot she saw was the defense in the midfield. She said anytime Chicopee Comp gained possession in the middle of the field, it was able to take it right to goal. But once in Greylock's defensive end, it seemingly ran into a wall. For that, von Holtz was pleased.
"The [defensive] group collapsed well. The two or three people nearby, were quick to collapse," she said. We had a couple of big checks.
"I was happy with our around-the-goal defense."
Paige Willis and Sam MacWhinnie each made two saves in goal for Greylock.

HOLYOKE -- The Hornets were done in by a tough first inning where they surrendered five runs. From there, McCann was fine, but it wasn't enough as it still lost, 6-4 to Dean Tech
"It was the first inning," said Hornets coach Pat Ryan. "We get by the first inning, we win the game."
Starter Joe Gwozdz settled down after that first frame, allowing just one more run the rest of the way against a tough Dean lineup. The hosts started the game with the first five players reaching base.
Tim DeBlois was strong in relief, allowing just a hit and striking out four in two innings. Eli Holland had a double for the Hornets.
