A puppy plays defense on the Stamford High School soccer field on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015.

Watch: Puppy on the pitch!

A puppy takes on a soccer ball in Stamford

After Tuesday’s FCIAC boys soccer match between Greenwich and Stamford, our cameras found a puppy wrestling with a soccer ball nearly half his size.

The young dog soon lost the ball to a human but was able to play some decent containment defense — for a rookie — before chasing down an errant pass. Watch the video captured by HAN’s AJ Szymanowski and Eric Gendron on Tuesday, Oct. 6.
