Soccer is a low-scoring game. Goals are precious and rare. That’s why we love it. (And why haters hate it.)

If your team is any good at all, you’ll lose your last game.

Somers handed Granby their first loss of the new campaign in an exciting, 2-1 battle in the rain on Friday, September 30th at Somers HS.  Hear from the two head coaches prior to the match as they talk about getting their boys ready for the big game.

Ask any coach why he does this, and you’ll get similar answers: the opportunity to pass along skills, tactics, passion and a love for the beautiful game. The chance to help develop hearts, minds and characters of young players, at a crucial time in their lives. The joy...

Tuesday was perfect fall soccer weather for my visit to Glastonbury.  Today was classic New England - windy, rainy and cold - as I cruised down Route 190 to Somers High School.   I was there to watch the defending Class S champion Spartans host the only undefeated team...
