Westport’s Kyle Martino Leads U.S. 2-0 Soccer Victory

Kyle Martino: Staples grad leads U.S. team to victory. File photo
Staples grad Kyle Martino scored the first goal six minutes into the second half Wednesday night and the U.S. soccer team went on to a 2-0 victory over Panama at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.

The win was an anticlimactic end to the World Cup qualifying series since the U.S. team had already qualified with Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama already eliminated from contention.

Martino, a former national high school player of the year at Staples where he graduated in 1999, took advantage of Coach Bruce Arena’s decision to use the game to evaluate some little used players.

Martino was on the spot and showed perfect execution when Chris Albright slotted an aerial pass 10 yards from goal on the left. The Columbus Crew playmaker drove his first international goal inside goalkeeper Jaime Penedo off the near post.

Staples Boys Soccer Whips Westhill

Players from both teams slipped and slid on slick Albie Loeffler Field today, but the conditions did not detract from an exciting, well played soccer match. Staples used two first-half goals, and a tally in the final minute, to top Westhill 3-1.WestportNow.com Image

The win raises the Wreckers’ record to 5-2-2, while the Vikings drop to 6-2-1.

Keeper Dave Sharpe and the defense of Colin Nangle, Ben King, Brian Carpenter, Tyler Ross and Nicky Hoberman were heroes today, thwarting numerous attacks by the skillful, speedy visitors.

Nangle nailed the first goal, on a penalty kick; then Preston Hirten finished off a nicely built up play, including feeds from Matt Lamb and Keaton Cristobal. Cristobal ended the scoring, heading in Hirten’s cross.

With Colin Nangle anchoring the defense—and scoring the first goal on a free kick—the Wreckers topped Wilton 3-0. Justin Rodriguez got the other two goals off the bench, on assists from Matt Lamb and Greg Bachman.
All three goals came in the second half, after excellent Wilton goalkeeping kept Lamb, Brendon Cristobal, Keaton Cristobal and Preston Hirten from scoring in the first 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, Nangle led the defensive corps of Tyler Ross, Brian Carpenter, Ben King and Nicky Hoberman.
