PLAINVILLE - The Plainville girls soccer team hung around for about 87 minutes, only for Simsbury to run away late.
The Blue Devils fell to the Trojans 3-0 at Plainville High School Thursday night, but head coach Leszek Wrona couldn't help but be pleased with his team's effort.
"We went up against a very strong Simsbury team today," Wrona said. "I'm very pleased with the way we played. We moved the ball well."
Julia Rooney, Emma Lukowicz and Katheryn Rutledge scored the three goals - two of which came in the final three minutes of the game.
Plainville is now 2-1 on the season and the head coach is excited about how the team is playing.
"We are getting into a time in our schedule where we are playing some tough [Class] LL schools," Wrona said. "This was a good test of where we are and I am pleased with how we played, even though we lost."
Glastonbury 1, Berlin 0: The Redcoats gave their best effort, but it just wasn't quite enough in what head coach Alex Joslyn described as a "well fought game."
Lindsay Walsh and Amy Kuckel led the Berlin defense against a Glastonbury team that scored eight goals in its first two games.
The offense couldn't get many scoring chances going for the Redcoats. Their best opportunity came with just three minutes left in the game on a scramble in the box. But the Tomahawks were able to clear it, handing Berlin its first loss of the season.
