Matt Lamb’s penalty kick—his third in as many games—was the difference as the Staples boys soccer team shut out New Canaan 1-0 at the Rams’ field today.

The Wreckers’ victory—their sixth shutout in seven matches—raised their record to 6-0-1. Staples’ next test comes Wednesday (4 p.m.), against a tough Wilton team at Kristine Lilly Field.

Lamb’s penalty kick came after Brendon Cristobal drove into the box and was fouled.  Cristobal, Preston Hirten and Russell Oost-Lievense were dynamic attackers throughout the afternoon.

Defensively, they teamed with Keaton Cristobal to neutralize Jeff Leach, the Rams’ All-American player.

Telling of Life and Death

WestportNow.com Image
The Friends of the Westport Center for Senior Activities today kicked off a new series “Know Your Neighbors” with Bill Meyer giving a talk titled “End of Life Choices.” The well known Westporter talked about his highly emotional experience and spiritual decision to help his terminally ill father end his life. He talked about his close relationship with his father and the factors that lead up to the decision. Meyer was ultimately arrested in 1994 for second degree manslaughter, which could have included a prison sentence of up to 10 years. The case attracted national media attention.

“We want to do all we can to make sure our first responders have the finest facilities and equipment. They deserve it. This is good news for Westport.”

The request had been originally submitted by state Rep. Joe Mioli of Westport. “I am glad the governor has supported the request and look forward to the State Bond Commission approving it,” he said.
