The Trumbull boys soccer team had scored in three games and had lost 4 in a row coming into the game with Stamford Thursday.

Justin Lynch took care of that, scoring twice to propel the Eagles to a 2-1 win over Stamford.

Lynch is a junior captain and has an incredible motor, going as hard at the end of the game as he was at the opening whistle. He credits year round soccer for his excellent conditioning.

“I play soccer year round,” Lynch said. “I run track in the spring and I think that definitely helps. That pays of, especially when you need to get that direct speed toward goal.”

Keeper Josh Amrine was great in goal for Trumbull stopping two point blank shots in the second half and making a few other tough saves on the day.

  • Trumbull moved to 4-5 and stays alive in the FCIAC playoff race while Stamford fell to 7-2-1.

The second half of the regular season should be pretty interesting in the FCIAC.

The Knights are in position to grab a top 4 seed but will need to find a way to score more goals if they want a home playoff game.
