NEW BRITAIN — Old Saybrook boys soccer coach Sam Barnes won state titles as a player during his junior and senior seasons.

Now, he has won back-to-back state titles in his final two seasons after coaching the Rams for 26 years.

No. 5 Old Saybrook beat No. 3 Holy Cross 3-1 in overtime of the CIAC Class S title game at Veteran’s Stadium for its second championship in-a-row.

“The boys dug down deep. We have been talking about defending our title, all year. For it to actually happen, is amazing,” Barnes said. “Junior and senior years of high school I won it back-to-back. That’s how I started it and it seems like a fitting way to end it, back-to-back, again.”
