WOODSTOCK, Conn. — Stonington High put the ball in the net first, but Woodstock Academy responded with three unanswered goals to post a 3-1 ECC out-of-division girls soccer victory on a cold, damp Wednesday afternoon.

Bears coach Jen Solomon said the game on Woodstock's turf field was played in a light rain.

After a scoreless first half, Carley Constantine gave the Bears a 1-0 lead five minutes into the second period. Solomon said Constantine, a freshman, dribbled from midfield past three Centaurs defenders before scoring on a breakaway.

But that would be all for Stonington (5-6).

"[Woodstock's] a good side," Solomon said. "They had the better of the play."

The Centaurs (7-3) finished with advantages in shots, 12-3, and corner kicks, 8-0.

Stonington, which has lost three of its last four games, next plays at Waterford on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
