FARMINGTON - The Southington girls soccer team heads into postseason play without a blemish on its resume.

The Blue Knights, after finishing the 2019 regular season undefeated en route to a state championship appearance, finished an encore in 2020 after beating Farmington 4-1 on Thursday, the team’s 12th win of the season in as many games.

Southington jumped out to a 3-1 lead at the half after falling behind 1-0 early thanks to a Farmington goal from Sabrina Krouse off a feed from Abigail Reynolds. Maya Wroblewski tied the match with an unassisted goal shortly after, then picked up an assist on a goal by Morgan Hubert to give the Blue Knights the lead. Shannon Litchfield added an insurance goal when she and Micaela Potamis connected for a tally, and Shannon Litchfield put the game away in the second half off an assist from Chloe Bauman.

Emily Eigo made six saves in net for Southington, while the Blue Knights offense kept Farmington goalkeeper Margaret Huelin busy, forcing the netminder to make 17 saves.
