Boys soccer, girls swim stay unbeaten
Warriors still unbeaten
Even though it was outplayed, the Wilton boys soccer team remained unbeaten Monday night.
The Warriors were able to come away with a 0-0 tie against at home against Norwalk and are now 4-0-2 this season.
“Norwalk had so much more energy than we did,” Wilton coach Edwin Carvajal said. “We didn’t have much of the ball.”
The Warriors had beaten Norwalk, 2-0, last Wednesday in Norwalk.
“Maybe we were still on a high from that game,” Carvajal said. “But Norwalk was much better on Monday night. They came in with a lot of power.”
Oliver Dahlen scored both of Wilton’s goals in last week’s victory over Norwalk. One of the goals came on an assist from goalie Jack Lynch.
“Jack punted the ball and the defense missed it and it went to Oliver at the top of the box,” Carvajal said.
Lynch and the Wilton defenders have allowed only one goal in the team’s first six games.
“The backline has been great,” Carvajal said. “Ahrav Soi, Zach Abud, Zarius Eusebe, Matthew Koleszar, Cole Iannuzzi ... they have all done a terrific job of limiting shots on goal. And when the other team has gotten off shots, Jack Lynch has come up big with saves.”
