SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ---- For the third straight year Massasoit met Roxbury in the MCCAC Championship game, but unfortunately the Warriors fell for the third straight time as the sixth-ranked Tigers defeated the Warriors 106-39 on Sunday afternoon.

Massasoit (8-13) will need to have a short memory as it will face Roxbury (16-6) for the fourth time this season in the Region 21 Tournament semifinals on Saturday at 2 PM held at Bunker Hill CC.

Roxbury raced out to a 23-10 lead after the first quarter, which then expanded to 53-17 at intermission, as the Warriors were forced to play with only five players for all 40 minutes due to illness and injury.

Sierra Johnson (Brockton) paced Massasoit with 15 points, followed by Sienna Johnson (Brockton) and Karen Snow (Duxbury) who each netted 11 in the loss.
