MONROE, CT — Masuk High’s boys soccer team defeated visiting Notre Dame 4-0 on Thursday. The Panthers’ defense added its sixth shutout and now has now recorded three shutouts in a row.
“This was the best game we’ve played all season,” said Masuk Coach Brendan Cavanaugh. “We pressed the ball all game and made it difficult for their playmakers to get in the flow of the the game. Defensively, we shut them down.”
Senior goalkeeper Chris Simoulidis made three saves. The defense limited his workload, shutting down all scoring attempts by a very good Notre Dame squad. Tristan Pike did a great job shutting down Notre Dame’s top player.
Junior Owen Correll scored two goals in the first half. In the second half, senior captain Roger Fekete found the back on the net and was assisted by Correll. The final goal was scored by junior Kasper Murzinski. Senior Hadara Sisay added two assists in the game.
“Offensively, we scored and looked very good in the middle moving the ball around,” Cavanaugh said. “Hopefully we can keep this momentum up while we travel to face a very good team in New Fairfield.”
The Panthers will visit New Fairfield on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 6 p.m. Catch the Panthers at home on Thursday, Oct. 13, when Brookfield visits at 7 p.m.
