MIDDLETOWN - Ashley Wenzel continued to put up big numbers for the Berlin girls soccer team.

Middletown learned that the hard way Monday afternoon.

The sophomore scored four goals as the Redcoats beat the Blue Dragons 6-0.

It marked the third time this season Berlin has scored at least six goals in a match.

Jenna Zup and Maxine Muscatello netted the other two goals for the Redcoats, while Muscatello and Lea Cabral each recorded two assists.

Lindsay Walsh saved five shots in net as Berlin moved to 4-2-1 on the season.


Innovation 3, HMTCA 2: The entire match was as close as the final score indicated with the Ravens pulling out the win after set scores of 21-25, 25-17, 25-20, 23-25, 15-14.

But it was the fifth and final set where Innovation showed their will to win. Twice the Ravens faced big deficits and twice they erased them.

Innovation rallied from a 7-0 deficit and a 10-4 deficit to clinch the deciding game.

“The girls played well,” Raven head coach Matt Lance said. “Keshliani Hidalgo had a big serving run at the end of the match and made some key defensive plays for us. She really stepped up tonight. She came in the middle of the match and played well.”

Morgan Sator (22 digs, 5 aces), Molly Corcoran (18 assists, 5 aces) and Aaliyah Walker (8 kills) led the way for Innovation, which is now 7-2 on the season.

Goodwin Tech 3, Windham Tech 0: It was about as consistent of a match as the Gladiators could have asked for after beating Windham Tech in set scores of 25-15, 25-14 and 25-16.

“The Girls served really well today,” head coach Christina Stisser said. “They attacked the ball well today too. Hopefully we can carry that over into our next match.

Adaneysi Guzman had 11 service points; Joa Pino had nine aces, two kills, nine service points and six aces; and Soannie Arroyo has 10 aces, seven service points and two digs to help Goodwin Tech improve its record to 6-4 on the year.

Southington 3, Platt 0: The Blue Knights continue to win.

Southington earned its ninth straight win to start the season after sweeping the Panthers 25-20, 25-6 and 25-11.

Bella Myrick (5 aces), Lynsey Danko (20 digs, 4 aces), Era Pasha (4 aces), Katie Gundersen (5 kills), Jenna Martin (11 digs) and Olivia Carpenter (20 assists) led the way for the Blue Knights.

RHAM 3, Newington 0: The Indians fell by set scored of 25-23, 25-19 and 25-10.

Maddie Massaro-Cook had 10 kills for Newington (5-4), while Azya Bass finished with 24 assists and 12 digs.
