Staples Boys Soccer Team Wins First Game of State Tourney

The Staples boys soccer team erupted for three goals in the first eight minutes, then cruised to a 5-0 victory today over Danbury in the opening round of the state class “LL” tournament in Westport. 

The Wreckers, seeded seventh with a 13-2-2 record, now host the winner of the Greenwich-Hall game. That round-of-16 contest will be played Wednesday at
2 p.m., at Albie Loeffler Field.

Ross McGibney’s hat trick sparked the Staples onslaught. The junior striker’s first goal came just 1:13 after the opening whistle, off a long ball from sweeper Colin Nangle.

Less than two minutes later Chris Meinke drove into the corner, and fed a great cross to Derek Kennedy.
