The Sutton High girls' soccer team learned that sometimes there is no stopping a team on a roll. The Suzies ran into a red-hot and, until the postseason began, underrated Weston High team and dropped a 1-0 decision in the Division 3 state championship game at Commerce Bank Field at Foley Stadium Saturday afternoon. Weston (12-7-1) entered the Eastern Mass. tournament as the No. 17 seed and had a sub-.500 regular-season record, but qualified based on its winning record against Division 3 opponents. Clearly, playing stiffer competition in the regular season paid off for Weston, which steamrolled its playoff opponents by a combined 19-0 score leading up to the state title game. Sutton, which was the No. 2 seed in Central Mass., finished 18-4-1. The game was a rematch of sorts of the 2010 state championship game, which was won, 3-1, by Weston. ‘‘Take nothing away; Weston is a talented team,'' Sutton coach David Payne said. ‘‘We knew it would be a hard game, and I thought our girls did a fantastic job controlling the game. We had a lot of opportunities, but just couldn't convert any.''
