Western Mass. Poll
No. 1 Westfield is still dominating the competition in the region and the Bombers are the choice for the top spot in the Western Mass. Top 10 Poll.
No. 2 Agawam, though, is coming on strong. Following a 6-6 tie with Longmeadow, the Brownies have yielded five goals during a recent five-game winning streak. Sophomore Connor McAnanama has started those games in goal and owns a .932 save percentage.
No 3 Longmeadow is still a work in progress, but improved goaltending from newcomer Jack Tabb and a solid first line of Michael Tabb, John McDonald and Matt Pierson are providing scoring punch.
No. 4 Minnechaug is recovering from a slow start after losses to Wahconah, Agawam and Westfield by a combined score of 17-3.
No. 5. Chicopee Comp is on fire offensively. The Colts have scored nine goals twice this season and poured in six against rival Chicopee.
No. 6 East Longmeadow have been led by goalie Matt Gasparini, but the Spartans will need to improve offensively to remain in contention.
No. 7 Amherst may be the region’s most improved team. The players have bought into a new system and are thriving.
No 8. Chicopee has been led by Devan Longtin (9 goals, 7 assists).
No. 9. Belchertown feature balanced scoring. Five players have two or more goals apiece.
No. 10 Ludlow is getting good goaltending from sophomore Alex Will. Tyler Diotalevi and Brad Garete have led the offense.
