It all started fine for Wachusett Regional, when senior forward Jon Isperduli rifled a point-blank blast after a nifty move by junior midfielder Ben Amaral only 2:50 into a Division 1 boys' soccer state semifinal on Tuesday night. But the spirited play at chilly Westfield State's Alumni Field quickly favored West Springfield thereafter as the Terriers scored three goals over the next 10 minutes en route to dealing the Mountaineers a 4-1 setback. Wachusett, which went 7-1-2 to emerge as Midland A champions and capped its Central Mass. tourney run with a 3-0 victory over top-seeded Westboro on Saturday, finished 15-5-2. West Springfield (16-5-5) takes on the Eastern Mass. champion Somerville in a state final at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Worcester State.
