BROCKTON, Mass. ---- Shelby Sprague (Stoughton) netted two goals and added an assist as the Massasoit CC women's soccer team blanked Dean College, 4-0, on Tuesday afternoon at Warrior Field.
"We did a lot of nice things today and we got to play a lot of the girls," head coach Jim Stapleton said. "We were missing a couple players and I know Dean was as well. But I'm happy to get the win and now we get ready to play Bristol on Thursday."
Massasoit (3-0-1) hung a 3-0 lead on the scoreboard at halftime, as three different Warriors netted goals in the opening stanza over the visiting Bulldogs (1-3).
Krista Woodworth (Norton) found the back of the net in the fifth minute of action, when she headed home a corner kick cross from Sprague to take the early 1-0 lead.
Six minutes later, Sprague netted her first of two goals on the day off another Warrior corner kick. The freshman now has team-best 10 goals on the season.
Later in the half, Shauna Fitzpatrick (Braintree/Whitman-Hanson HS) moved up from sweeper to the midfield and buried a through ball from Gina Nutting (Rockland) to give the Warriors a commanding 3-0 advantage at the break.
In the first half, Massasoit outshot Dean 21-0, as action took place primarily in Dean's defensive half of the field.
After half, Sprague buried a pass from Emily Morgan (Stoughton) in the 47th minute to round out the scoring.
For the game, Massasoit rifled off 40 shots to just five by Dean.
Massasoit will play at Bristol on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
