The Connecticut Post and Norwalk Hour announced their All-Area boys soccer teams today. Though they serve different circulation areas, both agree: Brendan Lesch is their MVP.
The Hour team — consisting of 14 players from Westport, Norwalk and Wilton — also included Frankie Bergonzi, Sean Gallagher, Greg Gudis and Mikey Scott.
The Post squad — selected in a vote of high school coaches throughout southern Fairfield County — also included Gudis and Gallagher on the 1st team, and Bergonzi on the 2nd team.
Matthew Doran’s long article profiling Lesch noted the All-American’s intense work ethic. Brien McMahon head coach Ken Dustin praised Lesch’s “strong presence on the field,” while Wilton coach Jim Lewicki called him a “dynamic player” who combines skill, fitness and unselfishness.
The Hour cited Bergonzi as “one of the top two-way players in the FCIAC,” Gallagher as “”the team’s mental and vocal leader,” Gudis as a “tremendous finisher” and Scott as “one of the most underrated players in the FCIAC.”
