EAST LYME — Cole DeVoe scored the winning goal and Sam Montalto is now tied for first on the career scoring list as Stonington High beat East Lyme, 2-1, in a boys soccer game Wednesday night.

Montalto, a junior, scored Stonington's first goal in the second half converting a through ball from Will Sawin. It was his 19th goal of the season and the 63rd of his career. Montalto is now tied with Joey Ponte for the top spot on the school's career scoring list.

DeVoe converted a throw-in from Owen Lindennmayer with about 20 minutes left for the go-ahead goal.

"Cole whipped the ball into the box and it looked like a pass, but he hit it so hard it went into the far corner," Stonington coach Paul deCastro said.

East Lyme dropped to 2-4-1. Stonington (9-1) next hosts Ledyard on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
