Wethersfield took care of business on Tuesday, September 24, beating Rocky Hill 7-1. Wethersfield jumped out of the gate on fire, coming out with a 2-0 lead with just about 15 minutes left in the half, with both scored by junior Madison Righi.
The Eagles somehow outperformed themselves in the second half, starting out with a goal from Grace Conneely, assisted by Mya Pellegrino. Gracie Leahy was next up in the bunch, scoring a goal to make it 5-0, followed up by a goal from Annie Klementon. Rocky Hill finally answered back, with a goal by Corrin Stabile to make it 6-1.
Wethersfield was able to get back on track in this dominating win after losing their previous two games. “The girls stayed upbeat, even though we hadn’t gotten the results,” said coach Antonio Leone. “It’s kind of hard not to get fired up when you play an across town rival in Rocky Hill. They came out and it was by far our best game to date.”
Coach Leone was also happy about the improvements the team made between the first three games. “One of the areas that we didn’t do well enough in the first two games was that we weren’t putting our chances away, we weren’t scoring goals. To get 6 against Rocky Hill, I’d have to believe that’s great for the girl’s confidence.”
