Jason Weinstein, Trumbull: The way things have started this season, Weinstein may take up a permanent residence in the top performers. Last week he was here for scoring a hat trick and this week he topped that, scoring five goals (FIVE!) in Trumbull’s 6-2 win over Ridgefield. That gives Weinstein 39 career goals, breaking the previous school record of 34 goals.
Chris Aceves, Wilcox Tech: Aceves scored two goals for Wilcox in a 2-1 win over Sacred Heart. Wilcox Tech (2-0) has not lost in the regular season since 2016 when they went 10-2-4. Last season, Wilcox Tech went 15-0-1 in the regular season before losing to Wilton 4-0 in the Class L opening round.
Brennan Hughes, Farmington: Hughes came up from his defensive centerback position for an assist on the opening goal in Farmington’s 3-0 win over defending state champion Glastonbury last Tuesday. More importantly, Hughes led a stellar defensive effort by the Indians, shutting out the state’s top No. 1 ranked team in the coaches’ poll.
Ben Goodacre, Barlow: The sophomore scored the Falcons’ lone goal midway through the second half, giving them a 1-0 win over rival Masuk in the season opener.
