7th ranked Law defeats Branford, Edward scores eighth goal

Jonathan Law won its fourth consecutive game to open the season with a 1-0 victory over Branford on Tuesday.

Ranked 7th in the Class M/S state boys’ soccer poll, Law will host 3-0-2 West Haven at Lawmen Stadium on Saturday at 1:30.

Lex Edwards took a corner kick from Eliot Melgar and scored his eighth goal of the season in the win.

“They increased their pressure throughout the game, but our defense limited Branford chances,” coach Mike Gruber said of Aidan King, Michael Montes, Mason Turner, Thomas Bretthauer and Jackson Warters. “Jaden Wywoda made two huge saves to earn his third clean sheet on the season.”
