South Windsor won its first game against Conard-West Hartford in the tenure of the current senior class, improving to 6-0 in 2017 in the process. The Bobcats dominated the Chieftains 10-4 on Friday.

Connor Smith, a sophomore, scored four goals for South Windsor  and they were all scored in the first half, where the Bobcats held a 7-1 advantage  early. Kyran Blackwell made 19 saves on 23 shots.

“To be honest, I just kept my mind clear and if they got one in I just let it go,” Blackwell said. “And I just kept playing the next play. It’s been a long four years. Every year has been really close and this year we finally went out and got them {Conard}.”

After the game, Jon Giordano was complementary of Blackwell’s terrific performance that saw the senior yield just one goal through three quarters.

“He sees shots inside, sees shots from the outside and continues to remain poised,” Giordano said. “We’re very lucky to have him.”

Conard (2-5) received two goals from senior attackmen Henry Kneidel.
