KENT, Conn. -- Pittsfield's Hedi Abderrahim had a goal and an assist last week in helping the Salisbury School boys soccer team to a 4-3, comeback win over Kent in prep school play.
 
Abderrahim, who transferred from Pittsfield High after his junior season, scored early in the second half to cut into a 3-0 half-time deficit for the Knights.
 
He converted a shot from 30 yards out to start a four-goal second half for his side.
 
"A fantastic goal," Salisbury coach Rich Powell said. "That really ramped up our energy."
 
Midway through the second half, Abderrahim set up Thomas Yegbor for the tying goal in the eventual win.
 
The Knights (2-2-1) host Northfield Mount Hermon on Wednesday at their nortwest Connecticut campus.

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Superintendent of Schools Jason "Jake" McCandless is actively seeking new opportunities and may leave the Pittsfield Public Schools. 
 
After McCandless' evaluation by the School Committee on Wednesday, he confirmed that he is a finalist for the superintendent's position of the Silver Lake Regional School District in Kingston, just north of Plymouth.
 
"It simply feels in my gut like it is a good time to make a change," McCandless said.
 
McCandless came to Pittsfield in 2013 after being in Lee for 11 years, eight of those as superintendent and three as principal. He came to Lee after three years as an assistant principal in Virginia.
