Lancers gets past Bears


EAST LYME — Stonington High’s boys’ soccer team scored first, but Waterford rallied with three goals to win the ECC Medium Division game, 3-1, on the East Lyme turf field on Saturday.

After a scoreless first half, Stonington’s Chandler Ray scored on a penalty kick with 21 minutes, 48 seconds left in the 40-minute second half. The Bears held that lead for the next seven-plus minutes before the Lancers struck three times.

Waterford tied the score with 13:09 left in the game, took the lead with 7:55 left and then iced it with 3:21 left.

The Lancers outshot the Bears 10-3 and had a 9-2 edge in corner kicks. Steven Zelepos had three saves in goal for Stonington.

Waterford improved to 13-1, 8-1 ECC Medium Division. Coming into the game, the Lancers were tied with Montville for the division lead.

The Bears dropped to 8-4-2, 5-3-1 ECC-Medium.

AVON, Conn. — After cruising through their first seven games the Bears have hit a couple of speed bumps.

A 1-0 loss to Killingly Oct. 9 and Saturday’s non-league loss to Avon dropped the Bears season mark to 11-2.

Avon, which is the No. 7 team in Class M, was a very tough test for the Bears.

Stonington coach Jenna Tucchio said her team was a step behind all game.

“It was all about tempo,” she said.

“The biggest difference was their ability to execute faster. Their ball movement was quicker, they stepped up defensively faster and we ran around too much.

“This is the type of competition we will face in the state tournament so even though we lost it exposed us to a higher level of play.”

The Bears were outshot by Avon (8-2-2) 16-12, but Tucchio said Avon carried the play.

“We do everything a little too methodical. This should definitely serve as a wake up call for us.”

The Bears will need to be alert Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. when they host the Regals of Killingly in a rematch of Stonington’s only ECC loss of the season.
