Somers soccer rolls over Enfield

ENFIELD — With the return of three out of seven injured starters and the youthful supporting cast once again stepping up, the Somers boys soccer team looked closer to the team that took the field in the first five games of the season, where they balanced possession and attacking.

Enfield isn’t a team that can be taken lightly. Their record appears at first glance that they’ve struggled a bit this year, but truthfully, many of those games could have gone the other way, including the first time the two teams clashed this season in September, with Somers prevailing 2-1, with the game winner coming from Nick Murda with 30 seconds left in the game.

Anthony Romei and Korey Wells are tenacious and work well together. Korey is extremely physical and creates trouble in the midfield, so Somers was sure to keep the ball away from him and Anthony.

Nick Murdza was a beast, controlling everything in the midfield. Complimenting him, was Sophomore midfielder, Evan LaMontagne, who set up several of the plays that lead to goals tonight–two of which where he was credited with the assists. His progress this season is impressive.

“I couldn’t be happier with his growth and development this season,” Somers heaf coach Rick Kelley said of LaMontagne. “He’s a needed asset to our progress.”

Corey Brown also played well, and Matt Kopec was a standout at defense for Somers.

The Spartans are now 10-4 and looking to close out the season against two teams fighting for spots in the post season, Canton and then Coventry.

“Both teams will be gunning for us,” the coach said, “as we beat them the first time around this season, and they’re looking to close out their season in good positions. We have our hands full heading into the post season.”
