U10 Boys
5/15 v. Glastonbury
"Our boys in blue played a tough game against an unfamiliar foe.  Both teams unaware of each other’s weapons played a strong friendly match in Glastonbury on a warm Saturday afternoon.  Our boys played a physical and experienced team, but we answered with an extreme amount of courage and effort ending the first half 4-3 in our favor.  We fell flat in the second half as Glastonbury was able to score 3 more to end the game 6-4.   Although we were down two players, our boys played a great game and had fun in the process.  There were plenty of teaching/learning moments from this game that helped us in our league game on Saturday v. Wethersfield.  

5/16 v. Wethersfield 
In our first meeting, we lost 7-3 due to some opportunities we have since fine-tuned.  This meeting was much different from the last in that we have been developing our game strategies and learning from our opportunities and opponents.  Our continued focus on first-touch, passing (possession strategy), and spreading the field has created more opportunities for our offense to capitalize on the opposition's weaknesses.  The result of this match being a 6-1 victory.  Of course, there is room for improvement, we are getting better with every match and training session."

U15 Boys 
"Once again our first game, Friday night was canceled. Although it was a league game, our opponent had an early CUP game in southern CT and asked if we would help them out by rescheduling… so we did.

Our Saturday game was a CUP game versus a team from Guilford We won 3-1 with their lone goal being a penalty kick. The entire team is committed to defending and we are developing into a sound defensive team. All of our 3 goals were ‘team’ goals as the ball was touched by several players before being ‘one touched’ into the net. One goal was scored by Anthony Bieszzad… his first-ever!  A hearty ‘well done’ to all the boys."

U11 Girls 
"Saturday we had a Cup game against Guilford. We were very proud of the effort, teamwork, and communication our girls utilized during the game. We were applying pressure when Guilford had the ball causing disruption to their attack. Guilford won the game 3-1, their 3rd goal coming as the final whistle blew. Overall a lot of positive takeaways from our play including Guilford coaching staff complimenting our girls on their style of play.."

U11 Girls B 
"It was a big soccer weekend for our U11B girls.
On Friday, we had a well-matched game against Burlington. They struck first with a free-kick goal. Newington battled in the 2nd half leveling the score. We created a few more opportunities but weren’t able to find the back of the net. The game finished 1-1.

Saturday was our, first-ever, cup game. This was by far the toughest team we have ever played. South Windsor capitalized on a goal directly from a corner kick. Our girls played their hearts out but were ultimately outmatched. We lost 4-0.

Sunday we played our last league game. We went down in the first half against the run of play and equalized before halftime. The Blue Devils dominated the second half scoring 4 goals and winning 5-1 to keep us undefeated in our division. "
