Pomperaug Girls And Boys, ND Girls, Weston Boys Carry Best Records Into Playoffs

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Pomperaug's Camryn Ward races for the ball with a defender giving chase during a game this season.

Notre Dame Fairfield and last year's girls' soccer conference runner-up, the Pomperaug Panthers, went into their regular season finales (against other opponents) with glossy records of 9-1-2 in SWC play, and leading their respective divisions — the Pomperaug Panthers atop the Colonial and Lancers leading the pack in the Patriot.

Pomperaug kicked off the season with a 1-1 tie against Newtown in a rematch of last year's title clash, then played Weston to a scoreless tie before getting rolling with a 2-0 victory in another rematch with Newtown just a week into the campaign. The Panthers have allowed more than one goal only twice, a 2-2 tie with Watertown and a 4-2 win over Joel Barlow. The Panthers defeated the Lancers 3-1 in their mid-season meeting.

The Lancers have been similarly tough on the defensive side of the ball, surrendering more than one marker only three times in SWC games, including 3-2 wins over Immaculate and Weston.

Masuk and Weston both had 26 points heading into their last games. Masuk has lost only to New Milford (2-1) and Weston, both of which have eight wins in conference play.

On the boys' pitch, Pomperaug at 9-2-1 and Weston with a mark of 9-1-2, locked up division titles before the season ended.

The Pomperaug Panthers have lost only to Joel Barlow and New Milford, each by a goal, and tied Weston, which had its one defeat in a 1-0 setback to Immaculate. The Trojans also tied Brookfield in a scoreless battle.

Heading into their final games of the regular slate six teams were separated by just five points.

The tournament gets started on Friday November 1.
