Match Report: Staples vs. Trinity Catholic

Trinity Catholic is the smallest school in the FCIAC. The Crusaders are a Class “S” (smallest enrollment division); the other 15 members are all either “LL” (extra large, like Staples) or “L” (large). It’s not easy.

In today’s home opener at Loeffler Field, Patricio Perez Elorza put the hosts on the board with an 11th minute penalty kick. The senior added his second tally 5 minutes later, tipping in a fine feed from Sam Liles.

Staples added 2 more first-half goals, by Lars Djuve and Haydn Siroka, with assists from George Smith and Josh DeDomenico.

They tacked on 2 more in the 2nd half. Reese Watkins — called up from the reserves, along with Will Adams and Thomas Corridon — finished Djuve’s pass. Watkins then assisted on Siroka’s second goal.

Those three looked strong in their varsity debuts. So did Emerson Anvari, in his first varsity start.

The next match will be far closer. Always-tough next-door rival Norwalk comes to Loeffler Field on Friday. Match time is 4 p.m. FINAL SCORE: Staples 6, Trinity Catholic 0. SEASON RECORD: 2-1-0.
