Throw-in against Ludlowe

The start of fall season sports leaves only one thing on the minds of the historically successful THS Boys Soccer team: FCIACs and States. Based on the results they have provided thus far, it does not seem like they are far off from qualifying. Paving their road to the championships for both tournaments with a record of 5-2-0, the Boys are starting to look like their older counterparts from the 2016-2017 star studded squad.

Despite unsatisfying performances such as the 0-3 home game loss to Fairfield Ludlowe, the captains remain optimistic about their future standings in comparison to the rest of the league.

Senior Captain Panayiotis Xenakis reflected on the games so far, stating that “Overall our season has been going great. I don’t think anyone can complain about where we are right now – we’re on track for an FCIAC home game and being a high seed in states and things only look like they’re going to get better.” The team has faced some of their strongest opponents already, leaving room for a smoother ride in the games to come; Ridgefield, McMahon, and New Canaan, to name a few.

He remained especially hopeful about the future, saying, “The postseason is ultimately where the season’s preparation is going to bear fruit and I think that although this is a highly competitive conference and anything can happen, we have a great shot of winning it all. The only thing preventing us from achieving that goal is ourselves.” The boys will face their next opponent, West Hill, on Tuesday, October 3.
