BRISTOL - The St. Paul boys soccer team kicked off its season with the first two games against Holy Cross and Wilby.

Against the Crusaders, the Falcons took a 2-1 lead going into the half but Holy Cross scored the game equalizer to draw 2-2 with St. Paul.

Adam Van Linter and Danny Bond scored the two Falcons goals and Ethan Rembish added an assist.

The Wildcats game was friendlier to the Falcons. St. Paul had an offensive frenzy with seven goals in the game leading to a dominant 7-1 victory.

“We executed the game plan very well,” St. Paul head coach Victor Lira said. “We were able to utilize our forwards, the midfield created many opportunities and our defense was excellent in the back.”

Bond had one goal and an assist. Luke Hines had a pair of assists. Ethan Sanzone had a goal. Rembish had one goal and a pair of assists. Stefan Zwolinski added a pair of assists and Nate Duhamie had one goal.

After the first two matches of the season, St. Paul will enter Tuesday’s game against Watertown with a 1-0-1 record under first-year coach Lira.
