Greyhounds best rival Seymour, still perfect

SEYMOUR — The latest edition of this rivalry was as meaningful as any but less competitive than most. Marcos Soares scored twice, and Tiago Martins also netted a goal for the Greyhounds as Naugatuck (13-0-1) bested Seymour (7-4-3), 3-1, Monday at DeBarber Field in a game that the visitors controlled from the outset.

Thirty yards from the net, senior defender Ali Gadoush landed an arcing chip on the forehead of Martins, who was triple-teamed to the left of the Seymour goal. A sprawling Mike Breault managed to tip Martins’ bid, only to have Soares collect the ball before it ever hit the ground and blast it home for a 1-nil lead in the 20th minute.
