STONINGTON — Stonington High scored two first-half goals and that proved to be more than enough as the Bears defeated Fitch, 2-0, in the boys finals of the Piver Cup soccer tournament Saturday night at Palmer Field.

Ryan Turner and Sam Montalto accounted for the goals. Billy deCastro and Will Sawin had assists as the Bears dealt the Falcons (3-1) their first loss of the season.

Stonington (3-1) outshot Fitch, 4-0. Fitch finished with four corner kicks to one for the Bears. Stonington goalie Brandon Tavares wasn't required to make a save in the shutout.

This was the fourth Piver Cup title for the Bears, who have won it each year since its inception in 2017. The event did not take place in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Stonington next hosts Bacon Academy on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
