This is dreadful writing and editing. More should be said about Conard's horrible ability to score goals, not so much that the outshot an obviously outmatched Southington by such a huge margin. How about the Southington goalkeeper, he must have made a few stops, why no mention?

There is not doubt that goaltender Alexander Queen did an outstanding job for Southington, regardless of the final score. My apologies for not giving his efforts any mention in the game summary. Thank you for your comment.
