Evan Birns’ spectacular goal, off Brendan Lynch’s flick and Surya Balaji’s free kick, lifted the Staples boys soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Danbury today in an exciting FCIAC tournament quarterfinal match. The Wreckers pressed the Hatters throughout the match. Excellent midfield play, team defense and strong goalkeeping by Reed Caney all contributed to the win.
