Staples and Norwalk tied 2-2 today, in a boys soccer match that delivered all it promised.
The Wreckers and Bears -– two of the top teams in the state –- clashed at Staples’s Loeffler Field. The large crowd saw a nearly scoreless first half.
Suddenly -– with just eight seconds remaining -– Staples’ David Hoffman fed Dylan Hoy on the left side. The junior attacker slotted home a perfect goal.
The Bears came out on fire in the second half, but the Wreckers made it 2-0 in the 51st minute. Ben Root won a ball, and found Lorenz Esposito wide.
He laid off to Max Hoberman, who beat his man into the corner and launched a cross. The shot was saved – but Hoy was there to knock in his second goal of the day.
