Granby sweeps soccer doubleheader from CHS

CANTON, Oct. 1 – Playing under the lights at Bowdoin Field on Saturday, the Canton High boys and girls soccer teams played inspired soccer but in the end, it wasn’t enough.

In the boys game, Canton took a 1-0 lead on a goal from Tyler Detoire, his first goal of the season, but the Bears (3-2-1) scored less than a minute later. Granby received a goal from sophomore Brent Goldman near the end of the first five-minute OT session to give Granby the 2-1 victory. The Warriors slip to 1-5.

In the girls game, Granby jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead but the Warriors rallied with a pair of goals from Morgan Smith and Allie Coutu to cut the lead to one at halftime. But in the second half, the undefeated Bears were too strong, adding another five goals for an 8-2 victory.
