Wilton girls hoop team routs Central

The Wilton High girls basketball team ran its win streak to five games with a 47-30 victory over Bridgeport Central on Tuesday night at the Zeoli Field House.

With the win, the Warriors raised their record to 7-2.

Central took an early 4-0 lead on the home team, but the Warriors quickly turned it around and went ahead 6-5 with just under five minutes left in the opening quarter, a lead Wilton would never relinquish.

Wilton led 17-7 lead at the end of one quarter and then outscored the Hilltoppers, 13-3, in the second quarter for a 30-10 halftime lead.

Wilton took its foot off the gas in the second half and cruised to the victory.

The game had a scary moment early in the fourth quarter when Wilton’s Casey Pearsall landed face first on the floor while attempting to drive the lane. The crowd became deafly quiet while she was lying on the floor, but Pearsall got back to her feet and should be able to play on Thursday against New Canaan.

The Warriors used 10 players in the game and got scoring from seven of them. Haley English led the way with 12 points, followed by Erin Cunningham with 10 points, Alyssa Malvarosa with nine points and Pearsall with eight points.

Wilton was without the services of starting center Erica Meyer, who was out ill.
