The Warriors were led by Erin Cunningham with 12 points. Freshman Karen Brosko, making her varsity debut chipped in eight points, followed by Haley English and Erica Meyer with seven points each.

Brosko started in place of Casey Pearsall, who was in New York City for the Wendy’s High School Heisman awards ceremony.

"Brosko earned the chance to start for her effort in practice this week and played a solid game. She is just another one of our young players who gives our program depth and a foundation for the future,” said Wilton head coach Jaclyn Porco. “We still have a lot of room for improvement, but it’s good to put one in the win column.”
