PUTNAM — The Putnam  High School boys’ soccer team anticipates its transition to the ECC after a successful 2017 campaign. In 2017, Putnam went 9-7 during the regular season.
For the 2018 season, Putnam will rely on the experience of a collection of seniors as they navigate a challenging schedule. Putnam’s key returning seniors, Hunter Touchette, Kobie Bates, Simon Morente-Uz, Jacob Clinkscale and Aidan Bernier will need to lead a relatively young squad to ensure success.
PHS will see John Espinosa and Cole Davagian return to the Clippers after a few year hiatus. Finally, head coach Jon Miller hopes that freshman Karson Bates will be able to make an immediate impact for Putnam as he transitions to the high school level.
Sept. 7 Putnam played Killingly and came up with a 1-1 draw.
