Norwich 4, Afton 1

NORWICH - Norwich defeated Afton for third time in as many seasons, and earned its third win of the season in the process on Wednesday evening.

Curtis Woodard put Norwich up a goal early, then a Woodard crossing pass to Cameron Prime was finished on the far right post for the two-goal halftime lead. “We possessed the ball better today and played much better defense,” said Norwich coach Steve Prime. “We only made two mistakes and one of them led to a goal, but we had the ball in their end quite a bit instead of defending in our end all of the time.”



Prime and Chris Trevisani had second-half goals for Norwich (3-6), who play at Seton Catholic Central Friday.
