SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ---- Shelby Sprague (Stoughton) posted her fifth multi-goal performance of the season, finding the back of the net twice in a 3-1 road victory at Springfield Tech on Saturday.

The win ups Massasoit's record to 5-0-1 as the Warriors went a perfect 3-0 for the week.

Sprague scored both of her goals in the first half in the 11th and 37th minutes off passes from teammates Delmy Brooks (Brockton) and Silvia Sosa (New Milford, N.J.). Sprague's goals accounted for all the scoring in the opening stanza as the Warriors held a 2-0 lead at the break.

On the year, Sprague now has a team-best 14 goals, with five multi-goal outings in six total team matches.

STCC notched its first goal of the contest, when Gennelle Corbett connected on a breakaway in the 56th minute to slice the Massasoit cushion to just one goal.

But, the Warriors answered right back as Brooks scored on a breakaway of her own just three minutes later to round out the scoring.

Massasoit returns to the pitch on Monday, hosting Bunker Hill at 4 p.m.
