The Wilton High girls lacrosse team turned in another impressive defensive effort on Saturday in an 8-3 win over Glastonbury at Lilly Field.

Abby Baker put Glastonbury on board with 18:31 left to play, and Marina DiPiazzo scored at 16:47 to make it 5-2. The Warriors answered by scoring three times in a span of just over three minutes — with goals by Paisley Eagan, Greco and Sudano —to up the lead to 8-2 with 13:23 left.
