The 2012 Staples boys soccer schedule has been announced, and posted online. Highlights include 6 night games — including matches at powerhouses Ridgefield, Norwalk and Trumbull — and key home contests against Greenwich, Westhill, Darien and New Canaan.
After pre-season scrimmages with Newtown, Wethersfield, Glastonbury and 1st-time foe Fairfield Prep, the Wreckers open at home on Tuesday, September 11 against Harding.
The slate includes a very tough 4-games-in-10-days stretch versus Norwalk, Trumbull, Greenwich and Darien. The regular season concludes on Wednesday, October 24 at Danbury.
Staples plays 16 FCIAC matches — the maximum allowed by the CIAC. Because there are 19 league teams, each team misses 2 foes. This year, those opponents are Stamford and Bassick.
“We’ve got our work cut out for us,” says head coach Dan Woog. “This is the FCIAC — it’s tough for everyone. But I have full confidence that when the gun goes off in September, our guys will be ready.”
