On Thursday, the team traveled to Hadley to play the Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School and came home with their third straight victory, 2-1.

Newcomers Julien T C, Ellis W, Sam B, and Tayanna L have all improved weekly and contributed to a solid overall team effort. Charlemont had 11 shots on goal.
