DANBURY — The unbeaten Danbury High School boys soccer team is determined to lock up the top seed in the upcoming FCIAC playoffs, and the Hatters took another step toward doing just that on Monday.
Joe Mooney had a goal and an assist and Marcelo Diaz and Thiago DeSousa each added a goal half as the Hatters blanked Wilton 3-0. Danbury goalkeeper Matthew Silva didn’t need to make a single save to preserve the shutout, thanks in large part to the Hatters’ almost impenetrable defense.
As the lone undefeated team in the FCIAC, Danbury sits alone atop the standings and has already clinched a spot in the conference playoffs. The top seed — and, theoretically speaking, the most favorable matchups throughout the tournament — is their next goal.
“It was a nice, solid game,” Danbury coach Antony Howard said. “Of course, we have areas we need to improve upon, but we’ve given ourselves a good chance of getting a top-four spot at least, which is what we want.”
