After two straight heartbreaking losses to Guilford in the SCC playoffs, the Fairfield Prep boys soccer wanted a rematch with the Indians badly.

The Jesuits got that rematch and made the most of it.

Sophomore Austin Sims scored a goal just three minutes in and Tim Frassetto also added a first-half goal as the second-seeded Jesuits dominated third-seeded Guilford 3-0 on Wednesday in the SCC semifinals at Alumni Field.

Prep advances to Saturday's SCC final for the second time in three years. The Jesuits will play the winner of Cheshire-Notre Dame-West Haven at East Haven High School at a time to be announced.

"One of our goals was to get to the SCC finals," Lyddy said. "And we accomplished that."

Sophomore Luis Zamora added a goal as the Jesuits exorcized the Guilford demons. Prep was 1-2-3 in its last six contests against the Indians with both losses coming in the SCC tournament, including a loss in penalty kicks in the 2009 final.

"This was the biggest game of the season for us," Frassetto said. "You could tell from the warm-ups that everyone was up for this game."

Prep started as the aggressor, as Austin Sims potted his second goal of the tournament in the fourth minute, to put the Jesuits on the board, 1-0.

"We really want to come off the block really hard just to see how the other team will react," Lyddy said. "It was pretty much downhill for them in the second half."

Frassetto's goal came in the 26th minute when off a throw, he dribbled around a Guilford defender and struck a goal off Indians' goalkeeper Nate Kuester's hand and in the net to put Prep ahead 2-0.

"We came out trying to take it to them," Frassetto said. "We wanted to control the game."

From there Prep dominated, the Jesuits allowed just six shots, two of which were on target and stopped by goalkeeper Will Steiner. Guilford did not manage a shot on net in the second half.

"We have great confidence in our back," Lyddy said. "We've had five goals against us all year and that speaks for itself."
