Weston High Schools boys varsity soccer team is off to another great start this season with a record of 5-1-1 as of October 6. The strong start is what fans of the team have come to expect in recent years, as the program has had success in the past. With a 10-1-1 record last season and a 12-3-2 record the season before, continuing this recent trend of excellence has been the story for the team so far.
Despite their clean record, it wasn’t always smooth sailing for the boys. The team lost their first game 2-0 on the road to Fairfeild Prep and then tied their second game 2-2 at home against Masuk. The team quickly rallied off 5 straight wins all while outscoring their opponents by 11 goals combined over that stretch.
It seems as though the early season struggles were nothing but an anomaly as the team has since gotten back on the right track. What may be most impressive about this streak is the team’s defense. Weston has only allowed 2 goals over their past 5 games, allowing the offense to blossom as well.
With these wins against Immaculate, Newtown, Stratford, Notre Dame Catholic, and Pomperaug, the boys are now set up nicely for the last 9 games. It will be interesting to see if the team’s defense can continue to keep up their stifling presence and consistent offense. Head coach Kevin Fitzsimmons, along with strong senior leadership, have made the possibility of another successful season into a reality. Steady and reliable play from each facet of the game have made Weston soccer fans pleased with the final product that they have seen out on the pitch.
