Silvia’s hat helps Bears snap streak


DANIELSON, Conn. — Gabby Silvia’s first career hat trick helped Stonington High’s girls’ soccer team get off the schneid.

Silvia, a junior, scored the first goal and the last two in the Bears’ 4-1 ECC Medium Division win against Killingly on Wednesday night.

“She just needed to get some confidence and we needed to combine and find her,” Stonington coach Dave Walsh said. “We’ve been working and working and workikng, and it finally started to click today. We played a solid 80 minutes and if we can do that we’ll have some pretty good success.”

Stonington (2-4, 1-1 ECC-Medium) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Silvia scored 7 minutes and 30 seconds into the game.

“It was a combination play. Sarah Thomas started it out of the back. Tara Watrous played a diagonal ball through and Gabby beat the keeper one-on-one from about 10 yards,” Walsh said.

Watrous assisted Danielle Herrman 5:50 into the second half. Watrous crossed and Herrman chested the ball into the net at the back post.

“She kind of ran it in,” Walsh said.

Killingly pulled within 2-1 about 7 minutes later, but Silvia scored with 18:40 remaining in the game and with 10:25 to go.

Ali Cullen assisted the first and Megan Sartor assisted the second. In both cases, Walsh said, a ball was played over the top and Silvia made about a 20-yard run. When the keeper came out, Silvia got around her and scored.

The Bears had 20 shots and three corner kicks. Killingly (2-4, 0-2 ECC-Medium) had nine shots and did not have a corner.

Gabi Hoops made six saves for Stonington and Emma Miller made four for the Redgals.

“We needed this game big time,” Walsh said. “And we played without three starters (knee, concussion, wedding). It was a solid win. We won it with our subs and our JV kids stepped up big time. Hopefully this will carry over.”

Stonington plays at New London on Friday at 3:45 p.m.
