Moment of Injury

WestportNow.com Image
This photo by Kerry Long shows Staples striker Ross McGibney seconds before his collision with St. Joseph keeper Bryan Pollock Monday. The Wrecker striker landed on his elbow, dislocating it but not breaking it. Surgery was not required, and assessment of ligament damage will have to wait until the swelling subsides. Staples overcame McGibney’s absence and won 2-0, on a pair of second-half strikes by Colin Nangle.(CLICK TO ENLARGE) Kerry Long for WestportNow.com

Staples Boys Soccer Beats St. Joe’s, Loses McGibney

The Staples boys soccer team downed St. Joseph 2-0 today at Albie Loeffler Field, running their record to 3-0-2, but the news was not all good.

Striker Ross McGibney—perhaps the best player in the state—suffered a severely dislocated elbow when he flew high with the keeper, fighting to win a loose ball early in the first half. The senior co-captain was scheduled to undergo surgery later this evening.
After the half-hour injury delay, Colin Nangle—co-captain with McGibney—took the game in his own hands. He roamed the field relentlessly, and ran the show from his central midfield position. He also powered in two goals, 6 and 11 minutes after McGibney got hurt.

Nangle’s first tally was a free kick that roared under the keeper; the second was an equally lethal blast off a rebound of a shot by Taylor Stuart.

Staples Field Hockey Splits Games

The Staples Field Hockey team suffered its first defeat Friday against Westhill Stamford but came back Saturday with a win over Weston. Both were away games.WestportNow.com Image

Westhill displayed good field hockey skills and the Staples team suffered because of Westhill’s home turf field, which players had not had a lot of practice on. Overall, Staples outplayed Westhill, but was unable to seize on scoring opportunities, losing 2-0.
In Saturday’s 1-0 win over Weston, an offensive penalty corner, EJ Drevno, a junior, stopped the ball for a feeder to Blake Orban, also a junior, who drove the ball into the goal for a stunning score. Staples played a strong offensive and defensive game and controlled the ball for the entire game.
The field hockey team plays Wilton away Wednesday and its next home game is Friday at 4 p.m. against Trumbull on the Ginny Parker field.

Staples, Greenwich in Nail-Biting Boys Soccer Tie

The first half belonged to Greenwich, the second to Staples, and the final result was a well-deserved 0-0 boys soccer tie today at Cardinal Stadium in Greenwich.

The match, pitting two of the top teams in the FCIAC, lived up to its billing, with both teams hitting the crossbar once, both keepers making excellent saves, and both midfields battling on even terms.

Wrecker coach Dan Woog singled out his goalie, Dave Sharpe, and defenders Craig Wolgast, Ben King, Brian Carpenter and Nicky Hoberman—the latter playing in his first varsity game ever—for special praise.
“We’ll take a tie on their field—not many teams are going to accomplish that this year,” Woog said. “We played only three seniors today. They provided great leadership, and the 10 juniors who played are really stepping up.” Staples, now 2-0-2, hosts St. Joseph Monday, at 3:45 p.m.
