Mourao's goal gives Law boys soccer win

The Jonathan Law boys’ soccer team got their first win of the year by defeating Shelton 1-0 on Tuesday.

“The game was evenly matched and highly competitive with both teams having chances to score,” Law coach Mike Gruber said. “With 15 minutes left in the game Fillipe Mourao took a feed from Cooper Fitzgerald and volleyed it in the lower left corner.”

Shelton (0-2) wouldn’t go down without a fight and continued to pressure Law the last 12 minutes of the game.

The Law defense, led by Jacob Nastasia Jackson Warters, Aiden King and Jonathan Contaxis, held strong helping Jaden Wywoda get the clean sheet in goal.

Shelton had 7 shots on goal to Law’s 8 shots.

Wywoda made 5 saves and Shelton goalies Reino Sawan and Alessandro Mallozzi combined for 6 saves.

Law is now 1-1 on season and plays Platt Tech Friday at home at 4:30.
