Staples Vs. Wethersfield (Scrimmage)

Wethersfield came to Loeffler Field today, for the traditional Friday-before-Labor Day scrimmage.

The Wreckers continued to look well organized defensively. But once again they showed nothing for their 1st-half possession edge.

Early in the 2nd half Jordan McNair picked up George Kokkalis’ cross. The sophomore calmly turned his defender, then tucked a shot inside the far post.

Two minutes later McNair struck again. This time the goal began with a throw-in.

Several minutes after that, McNair got dumped in the box. Before the officials could blow their whistle he laid off to Ryan Petersen. The senior fired home for a 3-0 edge.

Staples’ next pre-season action comes Tuesday (Sept. 4), with a 4:15 p.m. match in Glastonbury.
