Berlin boys soccer team claims division title


The Berlin High School boys soccer team wrap up its regular season slate this week and the Redcoats are heading into the postseason riding a wave of confidence.

At press time, the locals owned a stellar record of 10-3-2, and recently earned their second straight Central Connecticut Conference South Division championship.

“After losing such a strong group of seniors, it’s difficult to measure expectations,” Berlin coach Sal Parafati said. “However, this group has come together and managed to win games. We haven’t been perfect, but at the end of the day, we managed to win a second straight division title. This team’s main asset is camaraderie. There is a brotherhood here that everyone buys into, and that is the key to our success.”

Berlin’s 6-1 victory over Bristol Central Oct. 25 is one for the ages. Noah Silverman netted five goals and an assist in that one. His five goals tied a BHS record set 21 years ago.

“What’s great about Noah is he is so talented but humble, and that makes him a pleasure to coach,” Parafati said. “His personal achievements never interfere with his desire to have his team succeed.”
