BOYS SOCCER

Joel Barlow 6, Stratford 1

The Stratford High School boys soccer team lost to Joel Barlow, 6-1, on Monday at Barlow’s home field, a grass pitch.

Stratford defended well for the first half of the first half, but then allowed the Barlow center-forward to receive the ball off a throw-in and dribble into the penalty box. From a few yards out, he tucked the ball past Stratford goalie Dylan Richards, who had 13 saves during the game.

Then, Stratford conceded a needless foul near the center of the field. The Barlow free-kick found their tall right forward, who headed the ball into the goal.

Barlow’s third goal, before halftime, came after they moved the ball around the field, combining multiple one-two passes, to find an open player inside the box, who scored.

Barlow continued to dominate possession in the second half, scoring three more times.

With about 10 minutes left, Stratford freshman Adrian Duque, in a brief spell of Stratford possession, took a shot from about 25 yards, catching the Barlow back-up keeper off-guard, who tipped it into his net.

Stratford’s next game is at Harding on Thursday then the Red Devils play Kolbe Cathedral on Friday evening at home.
