Roundup: Hoosac Valley girls lacrosse edges Wahconah, 6-5.

Posted
DALTON — As the Wahconah and Hoosac Valley girls lacrosse teams continue to battle for positioning in the Berkshire County standings, Hoosac Valley came out on top in this meeting, beating the Warriors 6-5 on Wednesday.

Hoosac's 4-2 first-half lead was just enough cushion to hold off Wahconah.

Five different Hurricanes scored for Hoosac. Alie Mendel led the way with two goals. Jilly Cote led Wahconah with two goals.

"Tonight both teams played their hearts out," Wahconah coach Kathy Budaj said via email. "Hoosac did a great job of transitioning the ball. We struggled with forcing the ball and not being as patient as we should which led to low percentage shots. It is exciting to see the level of lacrosse in the county continue to elevate and grow.

When we play them again, I'm sure it will be another great game."

LENOX — John Krol left his mark all over a road win for the Hoosac Valley Hurricanes (2-10). The senior threw six innings of two-run ball, striking out seven and walking just one. Then, at the plate he went 3 for 3 with a home run and three RBI. Hoosac scored all nine of its runs in the first four innings, getting major help from Devin Kogut's two hits and two RBI, Luc Trombley's 3 for 4 with a RBI day and doubles from Zach Swistak, Henry Sneizek and Logan Keyes. Lenox got a homer of its own from Jett Steinman, and strong offensive days from Mike Abdalla and Richard Armstrong, but Hoosac's bats were too much for young starter Nick Nicotra. Veteran Noah Hunter returned from an injury for the Millionaires to strike out all three batters he faced in the seventh.
