Girls' Booters Earn Victories And Sixth Tie
Newtown High School's girls' soccer team defeated visiting New Fairfield 2-1 at Blue & Gold Stadium on October 11, then went on the road and earned a 3-0 shutout at Naugatuck the next day. Newtown visited Weston on October 15 and ended in a scoreless deadlock, the sixth tie of the season for the Nighthawks.
In the victory over New Fairfield, Katie Rowan scored twice — including a penalty kick net-finder. Against Naugatuck, Karsen Pirone scored twice, Rowan had a goal, and Nighthawk goalkeepers Julianna Stavola and Alyssa Bailey combined to make six saves for Newtown's fourth shutout win of the campaign.
The Nighthawks (5-1-6 overall and 4-1-4 in South-West Conference play) will visit Immaculate of Danbury on Friday, October 18 at 4 pm and return home on Monday, October 21, to host Bunnell of Stratford at Blue & Gold, beginning at 7 pm.
