WATERBURY - The St. Paul boys soccer team picked up a shutout on the road Friday afternoon, defeating Wilby 2-0.

The game was even until the Falcons broke away on a goal scored by Adam Van Linter, off an assist from Patrick Carbone.

St. Paul scored one more time before the half on goal from Ethan Rembish, assisted by Van Linter.

The Falcons’ defense remained solid as no goals were scored in the second half.

Bristol Eastern 0, RHAM 0: The Lancers’ Tom Tefoe had four saves, while RHAM keepers Duncan Henderson and James Aborahmin had four between them in the dual shutout. Bristol Eastern had six shots and RHAM had five.

The Lancers improved to 4-6-3, while RHAM is now 5-5-3.

“Both teams played solid defense and the shots were limited,” coach Bill Sweet said. “I was especially pleased with our backs, notably Dante Costantiello, Tanner Tefoe and Gabe Soucy. Ben Chiasson provided a spark up front on attack.”
