Staples High School Boys Soccer advances to 2nd round of State Tournament
The final scoreboard said it all. Staples Boys Soccer successfully advanced through the first round of the State LL (extra large school) Tournament, besting West Hartford's Conard High School, 4-1.
The team started the game still pumped up from the adrenaline rush of capturing their 26th Fairfield County Interscholastic Conference (FCIAC) title, last week. Fourteen minutes into play, they scored their first goal and settled into their game, never relinquishing the lead.
Just before the end of the half, Staples converted a penalty kick for a 3-0 lead
The large crowd enjoyed the glorious fall weather as they came out to support the team. Fans will again have the opportunity to "fill the hill", on Thursday, when Staples meets Newtown, in the round of sixteen.
