Stanstead Spartans win Senior Boys Soccer trophy
The Stanstead College Spartans defeated Bishop’s College School on the Bears’ home field last Friday to win the ETIAC Senior Boys Soccer Playoff Championship. The final score was 3-2 in overtime.
BCS had finished the regular season in first place in the league and had defeated the Spartans in their two regularseason meetings.
Stanstead scored first Friday in the 21st minute on a free kick that was scored via a header from Will Huckins. BCS returned one at the 26-minute mark after the defence slipped on the wet grass and again at 37 minutes after some missed communication between the Stanstead defence and the keeper.
In the second half, the Spartans scored a second goal when Phil Martel worked the ball left to right to Olivier Daniel.
Overtime saw 9-on-9 sudden-death. But within a minute, Will Huckins sent a great ball just over the defenders and just wide enough for Keiran Gallant to corral it with full speed and tuck it securely to the left of the BCS keeper’s net.
