Norwalk boys suffer 2nd loss
FAIRFIELD — The Norwalk High boys soccer team was dealt its second loss of the season following a 2-1 setback to Fairfield Warde Tuesday at Warde.
The Bears slipped to 9-2 while the Mustangs improved to 5-3-3.
“We didn’t come out ready to play,” NHS head coach Chris Laughton said. “Give credit to Warde because they played us tough and wanted it. Every team in the FCIAC will give you a tough game so you have to be ready.”
Fairfield Warde had a 1-0 halftime lead and went ahead 2-0 two minutes into the second half.
Norwalk finally got on the board with 20 minutes remaining in the game when Santiago Muriel scored off an assist from Fabian Carvajal but that was as close as the Bears would get.
Norwalk had the edge in shots (17-7) and corner kicks (12-4). Svet Kozak made three saves in goal for the Bears, who host Stamford Thursday night.
