5 Wreckers Win State Soccer Cups

Five Staples soccer players will be spending July 4th in West Virginia.

The quintet — U-17s Brendan Lesch and Alan Reiter, and U-14s Aaron Liu, Jake Malowitz and Taylor McNair — won Connecticut Junior Soccer Association state cup championships this morning.  Playing on adjacent fields at Newington High School, the Wreckers helped their Beachside Soccer Club sides down FSA.

The U-17s pulled away from a 1-1 halftime tie to win going away, 4-1.  Reiter controlled central midfield, while Lesch locked down the central defense.

The U-14s rode an early goal to a 1-0 victory — their 2nd straight state crown.  The 3 Stapleites all play defense — and allowed 0 goals this year in state cup play.

The U-18s fell 2-1 to FSA, denying keeper Adam Liu a trip to the regional tournament in West Virginia.

But Beachside’s 4th state cup finalist, the U-12s, struck gold — 2-0 over Oakwood.  Four possible future Wreckers play on that squad:  Griffen Garner, Jordan McNair, John Osorio and Kyle Zajek.  The U-12s were undefeated in Connecticut competition this year, outscoring the opposition 58-1.

Good luck to all in regional competition — and congratulations to Beachside on a fine showing!
