WOODBURY – The Nonnewaug boys soccer bounced back from its first loss of the season in a big way by beating Wamogo 7-1 on Tuesday.
The win came four days after Nonnewaug fell 2-0 against Litchfield in a key Berkshire League matchup.
“We really try to focus on moving the ball, and working off the ball when we don’t have it,” Nonnewaug head coach Toby Denman said. “Some of those things just for some reason didn’t translate on Friday. We’re hoping that Friday was an aberration.”
Denman said he felt the Chiefs worked hard and moved the ball well against Wamogo, even with some substitutes in the game who haven’t seen much playing time yet.
“It was an opportunity to get some guys in, get them some experience in places they really haven’t had the opportunity before,” Denman said.
George Lyman scored two goals for Nonnewaug, and Andrew Ray, Jake Willis, Luke Shea, Joshua Cheatham, and Alex Gonzalez each scored one goal.
Ray had two assists, and Cheatham, Gonzalez, Shea, Dean Jones, and Chris Rosato had one assist.
Connor Hanggi stopped the one shot that came his way, while Nonnewaug had 25 shots on goal.
Willis said Tuesday was a great opportunity for the Chiefs to put the loss against Litchfield behind them.
“We knew we had to come out strong today, and we did,” Willis said. “We were looking for revenge. We had to get goals back today that we didn’t get Friday.”
Nonnewaug raised its record to 4-1-1, while Wamogo fell to 0-3-1. Nonnewaug hosts Gilbert on Thursday.
