Nashoba quarterback Jack Sarnoski threw two touchdowns Tuesday to lift the Chieftains to a 21-0 shutout of Holy Name. Saturday will be the third consecutive Super Bowl appearance for the Chieftains.

South Hadley (9-2) will also be looking for its second title in three years as the Tigers take on Wahconah (8-3) at 6 p.m. in the Western Mass. Division 2 Super Bowl. Behind Lane Grogan’s three touchdowns, the Warriors blanked Hoosac Valley, 22-0, in the semifinals. South Hadley defeated Commerce, 28-8, to book its trip to Foxborough.
