Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- University of St. Joseph freshman forward Maxine Muscatello scored the only goal in the 69th minute to lift the Bluejays past the MCLA Trailblazers 1-0 in a non league matchup at Shewcraft Field.
 
Both teams had chances in the opening half of play to get into the scoring column, but neither team could find the back of the net.  The Bluejays (3-0) held a sizable 13-3 shot edge in the opening 45 minutes, but the game remained 0-0 into halftime.
 
In the second half, USJ continued to control possession. They outshot MCLA 14-4 in the closing half with Muscatello's heroics providing the lone goal. She corralled a loose ball at the top of the Trailblazer box and loft a high arching shot into the upper right corner beating the outstretched arms of Megan Richardson to give the visitors the lead. The marker was her team leading third goal of the season.
 
MCLA (0-2) had a golden opportunity seven minutes earlier when Hannah Van De Water took a cross from Maddie Gibney but hit the crossbar.  The Bluejays were able to eventually clear the ball and keep the game scoreless at the time.
 
MCLA's Richardson stopped 10 shots in defeat.
 
The Trailblazers are back in action on Saturday when they travel to Russell Sage for a 5 p.m. kickoff.

North Adams Council Puts Brakes on Sale of Sullivan School

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Councilor Rebbecca Cohen takes the gavel when both the president and vice president had to recuse themselves from the Sullivan sale discussion. 
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council hit the brakes on the sale of Sullivan School on Tuesday night, saying the proposal to transform the vacant elementary school into an advanced manufacturing training center needed further discussion. Two other bids were accepted with little debate.
 
 
A locally organized group of businesses and entrepreneurs operating as Berkshire Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center, or BAMTEC, bid $1 for the 50-year-old building but their proposal says they will be investing $11 million into the building and another $3 million in equipment. The Kemp Avenue property is assessed at $2.1 million.
 
"There's an expression of raising a lot of money but I don't see anyone writing a lot of checks," said Councilor Wayne Wilkinson, recommending the proposal go to committee for review, adding, "there's a lot more information needs to be known before we move forward with this."
