MANCHESTER -- Playing a man down for more than half the game, the Burr and Burton Academy boys soccer team battled its way to a soggy 3-1 win over Brattleboro on Monday night at Applejack Field.
Sean Paradis set up Reid Conde's opening goal and added the eventual game-winner for BBA (13-0), which has one game remaining in its bid for a perfect regular season.
Paradis put BBA -- playing with 10 men since scoring late in the first half -- ahead 2-0 six minutes into the second half. The Colonels' Jackson Batchelder cut the deficit with a long, low strike midway through the half but Brock Pollard finished off the win with 9 minutes left.
Mike Nolan made 10 saves for the Bulldogs.
