Friday’s high schools: Belchertown girls soccer, Frontier girls volleyball clinch league titles

The Belchertown girls soccer team stayed unbeaten Friday with a 6-0 win over Longmeadow in Belchertown.

Five different players scored for the Orioles (13-0-2, 7-0-0 Kurty-Fielding), who clinched a league championship with the win.

The weather conditions made play difficult, but coach Chris Mogavero was hoping it pays off in the postseason.

“The weather was fine. The rain was fine. It was the field. The field was tough,” said Mogavero, who’s team has played in pretty good conditions all season. “You never know with a tournament game. It was good to play in that type of situation.”

Breanne Moreau (assist) scored two goals, while Natalie Caney (two assists), Bryanna Veroneau, Jill Cavanaugh and Danielle Fretwell each had one goal. It was Fretwell’s first career goal.

Brittany Moreau and Christina Delude each had one assist.

Sarah LaClair made one save and Ashley Cavanaugh stopped two in split duty.
