Fairfield Warde girls soccer head coach Tom Cunningham knew what his team was up against in the second round of the state Class L tournament. In 16 regular-season games, top-seeded, undefeated Bristol had scored 69 goals and given up only seven.
"I told the girls we needed to shut them down," said Cunningham. "Trying to trade goals with them would be very difficult, but the girls hung in there. We went down 1-0, but we came right back at them and maintained pressure on them the entire game."
