Caggiano Earns Fourth Shutout For Blue Knight Boys' Soccer Team
By: Dan Crowley
It only took one goal and a fourth shutout by freshman keeper Owen Caggiano for the Blue Knights (6-7-2, 6-3-2 ACL) to walk away from Plymouth South with the win.
After a scoreless opening half, the Knights tallied the game-winner late in the second off a corner shot by Connor O’Brien that was sent into the net by Brad Miele.
Caggiano was busy in the opening half Monday as he knocked away four solid bids by Falmouth. But Caggiano and the Blue Knight defense stood the test as they battled the Clippers to a scoreless tie.
Offensively, Sandwich didn’t generate much in the first half Monday with the ball in front of Caggiano for most of the 40-minute half. The Knights managed just one shot on Clipper keeper Gus Grosenbaugh.
In the second half Sandwich pushed the ball into the Falmouth end on numerous occasions, testing Grosenbaugh, while Caggiano continued to knock away everything that came his way.
The highlight of the season to date came last Thursday as the Knights hosted an undefeated Nauset team and sent them home with their first loss of the season. In their first meeting this year, the Warriors dealt Sandwich a 5-1 defeat, but this time it was the Knights who were 1-0 winners.
Caggiano was solid in goal for Sandwich, earning his second shutout in two varsity starts. The lone goal of the match came from junior Justin Lerch in the opening half when he pounced on a clearing kick by the Warriors and fired home the eventual match-winner.
