Troy Soccer Team Dispatches Adams in 3-1 District Win

Monday’s conditions were more suitable for flying a kite than for soccer. But for sixth-ranked Troy, the end result was just right.

Troy, the OAA Red Division, defeated Rochester Adams for the second time in six days, topping the Highlanders, 3-1, in a Division 1 boys soccer pre-district contest.

After surrendering a goal in the first minute, the Colts sailed past the Highlanders with three unanswered goals to survive and advance.

Troy coach Brian Zawislak’s team lost to Adams 2-0 back in September before defeating the Highlanders 1-0 just last week. The game started with the Colts facing an early deficit.

“Flashback to the first game,” noted Zawislak, whose team gave up a goal in the first five minutes of the 2-0 loss. “But we had good composure and we did a good job sticking to the game plan and not getting rattled from that. We were able to settle down and come back.”

Troy, which has been a mainstay in the state’s top 10 the past four seasons, has been unable to get past the regional finals in that stretch. The Colts have goals of making a long run this time.
