Staples Soccer: Staples-Westhill Rematch Set in State Tourney

The Staples soccer team is set for a rematch against Westhill of Stamford in the state tournament.

With three LL Division schools sporting 10-4-2 records, Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference officials resorted to a coin flip to determine the 14th, 15th and 16th seeds in the state playoffs. The Wreckers ended up 15th, setting up Tuesday’s 2 p.m. rematch with No. 18, 10-5-1 Westhill.

The game—following hard on the heels of Staples’ 1-0 regular season victory, and the Vikings’ 3-1 win in the first round of the FCIAC playoffs—will be played at the Westporters’ Albie Loeffler Field. See the Staples soccer Web site for details.

“The road to the top goes through some very good teams,” said Staples head coach Dan Woog Friday evening upon the Wreckers’ return from a scrimmage at Wilton, hours after the seedings were announced.

“All day long people have asked me how I feel about a third game in two weeks with Westhill. I’m excited, and the team is too.

“We know them, we respect them—but we’ve also got a score to settle. Our guys have never backed down from a challenge, and they’re not about to back down now. I love the attitude our kids have, and I know they’ll grow even more confident and focused all the way through Tuesday.”
