Staples Soccer Tied by Trumbull on Late Goal

WESTPORT, Conn. – Trumbull scored with 1:23 left in the game Thursday to tie Staples, 1-1, in a Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference game in Westport.

Ben Root scored in the 32nd minute for Staples (6-0-2). Dylan Evans got the assist, and despite some offensive parries by the Golden Eagles, it appeared the Wreckers might hold on. Trumbull’s Liam O’Sullivan netted the game-tying goal for Trumbull (5-1-1), heading in a beautifully-played cross.

James Hickok had two saves for Staples, while Nick Weinstein made seven for Trumbull.

“We’ve proven we can play with the best teams in the league,” head coach Dan Woog said, referring also to last week’s 2-2 draw with Norwalk. “Now we have to kick it up a notch.  Now we have to prove we can beat them.”

Staples travels to meet Greenwich Monday at 4 p.m.
