BROCKTON, Mass. ---- Maldini Da Fonseca (Brockton) recorded his first career hattrick as the Massasoit men's soccer team defeated MassBay, 4-1 at Warrior Field.

The Warriors (8-6-1) are off until Friday, when they travel to Holyoke CC for a 3:30 PM kickoff.

MassBay led until the 35th minute, when Da Fonseca scored twice in just over a minute as the Warriors led 2-1 at intermission.
