  • Bears keep their good thing going

    STONINGTON — The shutout streak is gone, but the winless streak that Stonington High’s boys’ soccer team has fashioned over the past couple of weeks lives on.

    The Bears improved to 5-0-1 overall with a 3-1 ECC Medium Division victory against Killingly Thursday night on the Donald E. Palmer Field turf.

    Five players had a foot or head in the scoring, and it didn’t take long for the Bears to get on the board.

    Thomas St. Rock headed home a cross by Leo Aguirre 55 seconds after the opening kickoff.

    “It was a short corner to Aquirre. We worked on it in practice and it worked exactly the way we drew it up,” Stonington coach Paul deCastro said. “It was a beautiful ball by Leo.”

    The rest of the scoring came in the second half.

    Kyle Gillick made it 2-0 with 15:07 left in the game, asssited by Ethan Murphy.

    “Gillick gave us a bit of a spark when he came off the bench after another player had the wind knocked out of him,” deCastro said. “It was a big goal. It wasn’t long (after he entered the game) that he scored.”

    Murphy fired a shot that was saved by not held by keeper Andrew Klawitter. A scramble ensued and Gillick got the ball and scored.

    Murphy made it 3-0 with 7:32 left, assisted by Tsang. Tsang made a great run up the flank, Murphy madce a good first touch and scored, deCastro said.

    Killingly’s Sean Guerin made it 3-1 with 6:58 remaining, scoring from far out unassisted.

    The goal was the first allowed by Stonington since 16:06 into its first game — a 2-1 victory against Ledyard.

    The Bears played 556 minutes and 56 seconds of shutout defense before Guerin scored.

    Stonington (2-0 ECC-Medium) had nine shots and three corner kicks. Killingly (1-5, 0-2 ECC-Medium) had four attempts.

    Killingly was competitive in its first four losses, being outscored by just a combined 5-2 score.

    Stonington’s next game is Saturday at home against New London at 11 a.m.
