RUTLAND — The Burr and Burton boys soccer team prevailed in a tightly-contested match 1-0 in Rutland on Friday night.
While Rutland outshot BBA 13 to 6, the Bulldog defense remained stingy and held on for a shut out behind sophomore keeper Will Morrell and senior keeper Liam Day each sharing a half.
The one goal came on a long-distance strike on a breakaway from senior forward Johnny Miceli who buried a curling knuckle ball in the upper left with his left foot.
Junior varsity call-up Nicky Miceli filled out the back line along with junior center back Luke Lehman and sophomore back Chris Ott to fend off most Raider attacks.

BBA moves to 6-4 on the season and 3-1 in league play. BBA will face Mt. Anthony on Tuesday at Taylor Field.b
