Trumbull United teams do well
Trumbull United had another excellent weekend.
On Sunday, in beating Old Greenwich, 6-0, the U-9 Thunder played their best game of the season, according to coach Tyler Jorge, who named Katherine Pollock, Olivia Flores and Lily Seltenreich the players of the games.
Pollock and Flores each scored twice, while Katie Marchand and Emily Meagher lashed home the other two goals. Seltenreich controlled the middle of the field, adroitly distributing the ball to her teammates. In net, Catalina Mozzo and Sophia Bennett combined for the shutout. The Thunder enters their final game of the season with a 6-2 league record.
The U-9 Wolves won, 6-1, in Shelton to improve to 9-3 on the season. Matt Bucci led the scoring with a hat trick, while David Onianwa., Sebastian Perez and Myles Dikmen picked up the other three goals. Coach Carlos Reinoso said the team played tremendous defense, led by Robert Claypoole and goalie Connor Hughes.
“The Wolves held possession of the ball for most of the game, which allowed for their big win,” Reinoso said.
The U-12 Hot Shots finished off their regular season with a 3-2 loss to Monroe, ending their district playoff hopes. The girls, who were Cup of Connecticut quarterfinalist, completed a 10-6 year with a 4-4 league record. Coach Meg Loughman named Lindsay Bull, Evelyn Marchand and Caitlin Ghent the players of the game. Bull scored one of the team’s goals, while Payton Corsi put home the other. Marchand assisted on both.
The U-14 Viper finished district play undefeated with two wins over the weekend by shutting out Weston and Darien by identical 2-0 scores. Against Weston, Moritz Seip and Brendan Phelan scored the goals, while Dante Palmieri stood tall in goal, including saving a penalty kick to preserve the clean sheet.
On Sunday, under the home lights at Indian Ledge, Seip and Juan Caro scored, while Palmieri recorded another shutout. The Vipers (7-0-1 in league) will be in the No. 1 seed in the Southwest District playoffs. The Vipers advanced to the Final Four of the Cup of Connecticut earlier in the fall.
