The boys soccer season came to an end this past Monday losing to Wilton in the semi-finals of the Class L playoff losing 4-2 in penalty kicks. Regardless, they had an amazing season that set the bar high for next year’s team.
This year the team went 18-5-1 led by senior captains Riley Carlson, Rei Koni, Max Karkos, and Toni Capessela. This strong senior class helped the Eagles improve to more wins from the previous season.
The Eagles had many big wins this year against Notre Dame and Bristol Central in the state tournament and they were also able to beat their rivals in Newington once this season. However, the Eagles lost some tough games against Farmington and Glastonbury.
We interview one of the team captains Riley Carlson to get his view on this year’s soccer season.
“I didn’t have too much hope when it came to the states, I thought we were going to lose in the first couple rounds, but making it to the semifinals was beyond my expectations for the season.”
We then asked Carlson about his expectations for this upcoming season.
“We should expect to make it to the state semifinals again next year. We are a sophomore-driven team and these sophomores should have more experience going into next year.”
As for the seniors leaving the soccer program this fall, we wanted to thank you for what you’ve done for the team these past four years you have played for us and the many accomplishes you have made. You were an excellent group that has paved the way for the next years of Wethersfield soccer and helped the program succeed.
