MERIDEN - Maloneyâ€™s Flint Rich knocked home a goal with 19 minutes to go to give Maloney a 1-0 victory over visiting Bristol Eastern on Wednesday night at Falcon Field in Meriden.
Both teams had shots denied as Lancer goalie Tom Tefoe just touched away a Ben Pierce attempt with a minute to go in the first half.
Maloneyâ€™s Devin Juan thwarted an Eastern free kick with six minutes to go.
Tefoe finished with seven saves and Juan had six.
â€śWe moved the ball well in midfield but couldnâ€™t make that final penetrating play,â€ť Eastern coach Bill Sweet said. â€śTefoe was solid again, while midfielder Nick LaChance had an outstanding game.â€ť
Maloney improved to 10-6, while Eastern fell to 5-7-4.
The Lancers will now await the Class L seeding on Friday and will probably be in a play-in game on Saturday afternoon.
