Wilton field hockey team repeats as state champs

The Wilton High field hockey team defended its Class M state title with a 3-0 victory over Guilford in the championship game Saturday afternoon in Wethersfield.

The top-seeded Warriors ended the season with a 21-0-0-1 record. The team's only blemish was an overtime loss to Greenwich in the FCIAC finals.

Goals from Emilie Arrix and Joanne Nazareth gave Wilton a 2-0 halftime lead over 10th-seed Guilford in Saturday's state title contest.

Annie Lynch added a second-half goal to complete the scoring.

Wilton beat Branford, 2-1, in last season's Class M finals.

It was the fourth state championship in program history and the third since 2006.
