WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Mount Greylock girls’ lacrosse team scored a huge win over Wahconah, 9-8 on Thursday evening.
The Mounties led by three in the second half, but the Warriors quickly closed it to within a goal. Greylock held strong, though, and kept Wahconah from taking the lead.
"It was huge [win]," coach Lindsey von Holtz said. "It was up and back almost the entire time."
Lucy Barrett had three goals for Greylock, which Alex Keater had three for Wahconah. Sarah Stripp and Alana Chesney each netted a pair for the Mounties, as did Paige Chiaretta for Wahconah.
CHESHIRE -- The Hurricanes used a six-run second to put the game out of reach and roll to an 8-1 win over Taconic.
The two big hits were an RBI single by Erin Girard and a two-run single by Caroline Tomkowicz.
Tomkowicz pitched a two-hitter with eight strikeouts and no walks.
"Caroline did a really good job pitching for us again today," Hoosac coach Morgan Shafer said. "She’s doing a really good job for us. Every once in a while someone gets a good hit for us, but it’s becoming more and more rare."
Amanda Ely cracked a home run for the Braves’ run.
