After a very successful fall season by local teams, we took to the internet to see what the people thought the best teams in Litchfield County were this season.
There was an online poll, with 15 teams from this past fall on it and after 24-hours and 1,000 votes here are the results.
The Lewis Mills girls’ soccer team comes in as the 10th best team in Litchfield County for the 2013 fall season. The Spartans were led by seniors Bailey Pace, Anna Marinelli, Lesleigh Carter, Emily Nepomuceno and Julia Pearson just to name a few, along with head coach Jason Stock.
The Spartans stormed through the regular season winning the Berkshire League title with an undefeated 16-0 record. They scored 107 goals, 6.67 per game, during the season and allowed only six the entire season.
After a great regular season they earned the No. 1 seed and a bye in the Class M State Tournament. But that is where the Spartans season would end at the hands of No. 16 Weston, 3-1, in the second round.
Playing an all Berkshire League schedule might have played a part in the earlier exit in the playoffs for the Spartans, or maybe it just wasn’t their year. But according to the people the Lewis Mills girls’ soccer team was the tenth best team in the Litchfield County this fall.
Look for Friday’s edition when we reveal our No. 9 pick.
