NORTHAMPTON — Buster Douglas over Mike Tyson. USA hockey over the Soviet Union. Northampton High School girls ultimate over Amherst Regional.
The Blue Devils’ 12-9 victory over the Hurricanes on Thursday might not rank quite as high as the first two upsets, but it does mark a major occurrence in the world of Pioneer Valley ultimate.
The win was the first time that any Northampton ultimate team, boys or girls, defeated rival Amherst in program history.
