BURLINGTON - Patrick Gryczewski broke a scoreless tie midway through the second half and the Blue Devils’ defense held on the rest of the way as Plainville beat Lewis Mills 1-0 on Monday afternoon.
Brennan Staubley picked up four saves in net to record the shutout, while the Plainville scoring attack fired 14 shots at Lewis Mills goalkeeper Ryan Mayes, but needed just the one from Gryczewski to get through and get the Blue Devils the win.
Southington 1, Northwest Catholic 1: Caught in a tough road battle with Northwest Catholic, the Blue Knights used a goal from Cole Marek and six saves from Ryan Lunn to record a 1-1 tie on Monday afternoon.
