BOYS’ SOCCER

ConVal 3, Plymouth 0

ConVal head coach Josh Smith called Tuesday’s road win at Plymouth a “dominant performance.”

The Cougars got two goals in the first half from senior midfielder August Marshall, assisted by Connor Close and Colby Knight. Senior midfielder Finn Wegmueller added another in the second half off a Knight assist.

Mather Kipka made a great save on a first-half volley that would have tied the game. ConVal outshot Plymouth 20 to 5.

Mascenic 6,
Fall Mountain 1

Mascenic got two goals from sophomore Jack Cocozella, a goal apiece from seniors Nate Wilkins, Matt Wilkins and Dylan Vaillancourt, and another from freshman Joe Cocozella as the Vikings rolled over Fall Mountain 6-1 on Tuesday.

The Vikings (2-1) host Conant for homecoming Saturday at 1 p.m.

Hillsboro-Deering 6,
Conant 1

Between driver’s ed and injuries, Conant’s roster was severely depleted against Hillsboro-Deering on Tuesday, and the result was a 6-1 loss.

“The bright spot was we generated a lot more offense opportunities in this game than we did in our opener,” said head coach Dan Bemis.

Jacob Tremblay scored on a penalty kick for the Orioles.

Conant (0-2) hosts Trinity (3-0) Thursday at 4 p.m.

WLC 7, Epping 0

The WLC boys have still not allowed a goal this season as they shut out Epping Monday to improve to 4-0. 

Jack Schwab scored twice for Wilton before the second-half double-teams he’s received all season descended on him; Matt Hadley also scored two goals, and Kenny Begley, Sam Townsend and Dominic Hutchinson all scored, Hutchinson’s on a deep shot from nearly midfield. 

Goalie Joe Krug made four saves in the shutout as WLC’s defense continues to impress, locking down Epping striker Michael Picard. 

Defender Evan Altsberg had a great game, Warrior coach Kristin Schwab said. 

WLC (4-0) has outscored opponents 29-0 so far this year. The Warriors host Conant Monday at 4 p.m.
