Coginchaug Boys Prepare for State Tourney Game vs. Old Saybrook

After the delay from Sandy, CRHS Post Season Soccer play begins this week.

The boys and girls CRHS Soccer teams both qualified for the State Tournament. 

The CRHS Boys play Old Saybrook at Old Saybrook High School at 2PM Thursday.  Old Saybrook narrowly won the regular season match 3-2 at CRHS in September.

The boys played a friendly yesterday at home against Class L Notre Dame of West Haven.  ND went up 2-0, but Kyle Dupre put CRHS within striking distance to make the score 2-1 at the half.  ND extended their lead to 3-1, but the boys kept their heads in the game; maintaining possession and playing strong defense.  Alan Haberern ripped a left footed service from Dupre and brought CRHS back to within one goal.  Shortly after that Dylan Slomkowski fed Tyler Kovacs in the 6 yard box to even the score at 3.  Ben Taber nearly gave CRHS the lead when he took matters in his own hands and carried the ball into the 18 and fired a shot on goal.  The ball was narrowly deflected by a defender and hit the crossbar and went out of bounds.  Connor Brennan also had a beautiful shot that would have gone in if not for an ESPN top 10 highlight save from ND's keeper.

The 19th ranked CRHS girls (9-7-0) will play #14 Stonington (11-5-0) at Stonington on Friday at 2PM.  The two teams did not face each other during the regular season.
