WILLIAMSTOWN — Hank Barrett scored with 12 seconds left in the first quarter to give the Mount Greylock boys’ lacrosse team a lead that it would never relinquish on its way to a 17-7 victory over Pittsfield, on Tuesday.

“We had kind of a poor first quarter. We weren’t catching or throwing, we were dropping the ball, we weren’t getting to ground balls, and we were tied,” Barrett said. “I heard the countdown and knew that we didn’t want it to end tied and I wanted to give us a little momentum to carry into the second quarter.”

Mount Greylock would indeed carry that momentum into the second quarter as it struck for five goals in the first four minutes of the quarter. In that span, Kent Hanson snapped home two of his three goals, and Ethan Ryan recorded two of his game-high four goals. Noah Kelley had the fifth goal.

EAST LONGMEADOW — Jeff Stripp brought his Mount Greylock boys lacrosse team here Saturday morning to face what he called a “really good” East Longmeadow squad.

It turns out the Mounties were even better.

“We knew it was going to be a challenge for us,” said Greylock senior Kent Hanson. “But I don’t think most of the guys thought we’d actually win it. I knew we’d give them a good fight.”

Hanson and his teammate did win it, though, stunning the Spartans 9-5 on their home field. Hanson had a goal, two assists and countless interceptions that kept the ball in a Mountie stick and the pressure on East Longmeadow (6-3). Noah Kelley added three goals while Ethan Ryan had two. Michael McCormack added two goals and an assist.

It was a milestone victory for a Mountie program in its first year at the varsity level against a team that had made the Western Massachusetts tournament three of the last four years. Spartans coach Dan Blinn said he remembers helping Greylock learn the sport when the school had just a club program.
