Mount Everett boys win opener in soccer, beat Hoosac Valley 2-1

SHEFFIELD — It's taken them a while, but the Mount Everett boys finally played a soccer match — and came away with a season-opening victory.

Andrew Consolini's goal in the 46th minute broke a tie and gave the Eagles (1-0) a 2-1 win over visiting Hoosac Valley (0-2).

"For our kids to get down early and come back," Everett coach Josh King said. "This is huge."

The Hurricanes scored in the 27th minute on a goal by Ryan Walczak. Four minutes later, Everett's Anthony Lupiani tied the contest. That set the stage for Consolini's game-winning goal in the second half.
