STONINGTON — Stonington High's Sam Montalto scored three goals including the 100th of his career in a 4-0 win against Plainville in the second round of the Class M boys soccer tournament on Thursday at Palmer Field.

Montalto's 100th goal came at the 30:30 mark of the second half off a ball from Will Sawin. He later scored off a rebound with 16:35 left in the game for his 101st goal.

Montalto, who missed the first three games of the season due to an injury, has 32 goals and nine assists this season. He surpassed Joey Ponte as the all-time leading scorer in school history last season. Ponte, who graduated in 1989, scored 63 goals in his career.

Sawin finished with two assists and scored Stonington's other goal. Billy deCastro assisted on Sawin's goal.
