The girls and the boys soccer team took on the New Britain Hurricanes on Friday, September 8th. The girls played a home game on Cottone Field, while the boys went on the road to New Britain. The girls won 7-0 and the boys took home the win with the final score of 4-0 with winning goals from Brendan (Senior), Dino (Junior), Ben (Senior) and Christian (Senior).
From the very start of the girl’s home game, it was clear that they were in control. New Britain could not move the ball past the 50-yard line and the Eagles were making constant runs and shots at the goal in the very beginning. An out of box goal was scored by Chloe Troy.
The game plan for the second half was to stop the simple mistakes and make the goals in the box. The defense stood strong and anytime the ball even came close to half field, it was quickly intercepted and passed forward starting a sequence for another goal.
The game ended in total domination by the Wethersfield girls and the final score was 7-0 giving the Eagles a win in their season opener. Madelyn Barone was asked about what changed between the first and second half and she said, “We played a lot better in the second half because we finished crosses and took more and better quality shots. Because of this, we scored four times in the second half and only three in the first.”
The boys and girls take on their next game against Rocky Hill on Tuesday, September 12th.
The boys are looking for revenge from last year’s game against Rocky Hill which resulted in a loss. The boys are ready for a win to eliminate last year's loss from their minds. The girls will play at seven o'clock in Rocky Hill and are also looking to get another win this year after a solid victory last year.
Looking further down the schedule to Friday, September 15th, the girls will take on RHAM on the Cottone Field at 6:30 p.m. The game is set to be huge with rumors of many RHAM students coming to WHS to support their team. The boys go on the road to take on South Windsor and are hopeful for another win.
