SOUTHBURY - After the first month of the 2019 NVL girls’ soccer season, it’s a very reasonable notion to see Watertown High School taking a path to another NVL title.
With an Iron Division record of 2-0, an NVL record of 5-0 and an overall mark 5-1-1, it’s also reasonable to say that the Indians have made a smooth transition to new head coach Melissa Ciarlo and assistant Nina Mariano as well as reloaded with new faces dotting the lineup, including four sophomores.
One of the steadying influences on the team has been senior Madeline Daigneault, who along with fellow senior Sophia Guerrera, did the scoring in a 2-2 draw with unbeaten Pomperaug High School in a non-league match in Southbury on September 28.
So how good was September for the Indians, you could ask; it was this good: As October began, they were one of only two teams with a zero in the league loss column.
The other was Holy Cross (with one draw) as the divisional leaders geared up for their only meeting of the regular season on October 1 at the Mills Complex.
