Chicopee Sees Magical Run Come to an End

The Chicopee Pacers entered the Western Mass Tournament as the 7-seed, with very few people on their bandwagon.

But the Pacers beat the 2-seed Longmeadow Lancers in the quarterfinals, then the 3-seed Holyoke Purple Knights in the semifinals, and finally beat the #1 seed Northampton Blue Devils in the championship game.

But Monday night, Chicopee had their magical Cinderella run come to an end, when Holy Name utilized a 21-2 run to knock off the Pacers, 40-31.  Chicopee finishes the season at 16-8.
