The strength of the Staples High School soccer program was on display, yesterday, as the boy's team chalked up an easy win over West Haven, in the opener of the CIAC LL (extra large school) State Championship. The team scored their first goal, fifteen minutes into play, followed by a second goal, only seconds later. At the end of the first half, Staples led 3-0, which held as a final score.
The team will move on to the second round as they defend their 2009 State Championship. Last week's win in the FCIAC was their 3rd consecutive and 27th overall, Fairfield County title.
Tueday's game was played on their home field, to a full house. The second round will also be played at Staples, when the boys face Guilford, Thursday afternoon, at 2:00 P.M. If you're in the neighborhood, come out and cheer them on.
UPDATE: Staples survived the CIAC LL Championship 2nd round, beating Guilford 2-1, in overtime play. Staples advances to the quarterfinals, facing Simsbury, on Monday, November 15, 2010, at 2:00, at Staples H.S.
