    It’s been ten years since both of Newtown High School’s soccer teams captured state championships in the same season — an incredible feat the program celebrated during halftime of the boys’ game, the second in a twin bill for the girls and boys at Blue & Gold Stadium on September 27.

    “We were happy about the tie because they’re a good team — we know they’ve played well so far,” senior captain Brenna Kelly said. “We had some good effort.”
