West Port Boys, Vanguard Girls Win MCIAC Football Titles at Booster Stadium

The finals of the MCIAC football championship were held on a frigid Friday night at Booster Stadium, with the boys from West Port Forest beating 3-1 while the Vanguard girls beating Forest 2-0.

This is the second consecutive year that West Port, which improved to 11-2-1, defeated Forest as the best boys’ soccer team in the province.

“What a great game,” said West Port coach Robert Boland. “I can’t say enough good things about not just my program but Forest. That’s a quality team with a quality program and I know those guys are hurting because nobody wants to lose, especially not over a championship game. Every time we go to Forest playing and winning it gives us momentum.”

The loss dropped FHS to 11-5-1.

“A great game with great teams,” said Wildcats coach Jason Wigginton. “The better team won tonight. I gave our boys everything I expected and I am very proud of them. We are a young team and West Port better watch out next year.”
