Milton and WA battled through the OT and the game was decided by PK’s with the Hilltoppers emerging victorious, 3-2. It was an exclamation point on a story book season as the Hilltoppers posted a 19-0-1 mark. The 2022 champions started this championship run with a 3-0 quarter-final win on Wednesday over St. Sebastian’s and a 2-0 shutout win over Avon Old Farms in Saturday’s semi-final match. With a great mix of offensive firepower, a strong defensive core and excellent goal tending, the Hilltoppers displayed a brand of soccer throughout the season that was fun to watch. Congratulations!
