Welcome to the ninth 2017 installment of “Set Piece”, the Southington High School Soccer team’s blog spot.
Blue Knight’s on the Pitch: A Look Back and a Look Forward
Due to the heavy rain and wind, the Tuesday home match with Conard was postponed. It will be made up this Wednesday at 3:45pm.
On a cool Thursday evening, the Blue Knights traveled to Hall High School for a tough road match. With familiar faces back in familiar places, Southington welcomed Evan Daddona back into goal and Cameron Zegzdryn back on defense. Eighty-minutes of soccer was played very evenly with both teams having chances to score and each team playing strong defense resulting in a 0-0 tie at the end of regulation. It was a flashback to the 2017 season opener against Hall that went into overtime and ended in a 1-1 tie. The first overtime ended in the same fashion as regulation with no score and the teams proceeded to the final 5 minutes of the game. Mid-way through the second overtime, Alexis Frausto found the back of the net for a 1-0 Blue Knights lead. Southington played solid team defense for the final minutes and preserved the thrilling 1-0 victory. Congratulations to Evan for a shutout in his return as the Blue Knights goalie.
The Blue Knights ended the week with a record of 7-5-2.
Southington will start next week with a home match on Monday against Northwest Catholic at 5pm. Monday will be Senior night where we will celebrate our 2018 Senior Class. If you are coming to the game, please plan to be there for 4:45pm to be part of the pre-game festivities. On Wednesday, Southington’s last regular season game will be the home make-up game against Conard at 3:45pm.
