WILMINGTON -- The Twin Valley boys varsity soccer team made their triumphant return to Baker’s Field (which had been destroyed last year due to flooding) to host Bellows Falls, where the Wildcats shutdown the Terriers, 3-0, in a game Thursday under the lights.
There was no score through the first half, but Colin Lozito broke it open in the second, scoring two goals just a minute apart. His first was put away at the 10-minute mark, an unassisted corner shot. The second was a long ball from about 35 yards off the flank.
Tony Tarr made the final goal after Lozito set him up for a wide-open kick. Back from New Zealand, Eli Park played his role as sweeper and had help from the Nesbitt brothers, Dal and Cade.
"We knocked the ball around fairly well," said coach Buddy Hayford. "This year, we’ve got a strong nucleus of underclassmen, so I’ll be looking to them in the future."
Sam Molner was out of action Thursday as keeper, but Kyle Murdock stepped in and made two huge saves for the Wildcats.
Twin Valley’s next game is at home against defending state champs Proctor on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
