WILTON \u2014 The two most eye-popping stats from Wednesday\u2019s Class L semifinals at Fujitani Field, aside from the final score of Fairfield Prep\u2019s 14-5 win over Wilton, were probably faceoffs and shooting percentage. Wilton went 20-2 on draws. But Fairfield Prep scored 14 goals on 27 shots. The Jesuits are off to the final for the first time since 2013, the capper to a remarkable run for a young group that sometimes struggled to beat top teams through the regular season. Sophomore midfielder Marco Firmender paced the Jesuits\u2019 offense with four goals, matching his output from Saturday\u2019s stunning 14-10 quarterfinal win over top-ranked Darien. Jesuits standout defender Mason Whitney said the veterans tried to make sure there\u2019d be no letdown. \u201cA lot of guys were riding high on that. We\u2019ve got to remind them we\u2019ve got another game coming up,\u201d Whitney said. \u201cWe can\u2019t be thinking we beat them and we\u2019re done.\u201d There\u2019s one more game now, one only: Eighth-seeded Fairfield Prep (17-4) will face 14th-seeded Ridgefield (15-7) in the championship game on Saturday at Trumbull\u2019s McDougall Stadium at a time to be announced. Ridgefield defeated the Jesuits 13-5 on April 17 in their regular-season meeting, a long time ago for two teams that have each had ups and downs. \u201cThey\u2019re playing better again. The first game was kind of weird: We played great for a quarter, then got blown out,\u201d Fairfield Prep coach Graham Niemi said. \u201cI\u2019ll have a long night (Wednesday) night, do a little studying. We\u2019re going to be psyched to practice (Thursday).\u201d Speaking of a long time ago, the schools have met three times in Class L finals, wins for Fairfield Prep in 2008 and 2012 and a win for Ridgefield in 2011. For only the second time, the CIAC will play its boys lacrosse finals with none of Darien, Wilton or New Canaan involved. Cheshire beat Glastonbury for the 2002 Division I title, taking out Wilton and Darien along the way after the Jesuits had defeated New Canaan. Fairfield Prep reached a final for the 10th time. It had gone to eight consecutive Class L finals after the CIAC went from a two-division playoff format to three enrollment-based classes, but the school hadn\u2019t been back since 2013. Fifth-seeded Wilton, runner-up to Darien when the tournament was last contested in 2019, finishes 15-6. The Warriors and Jesuits had tied for third in the GameTimeCT Top 10 Poll before the tournament. One of Wilton\u2019s wins was an 8-6 victory over the Jesuits not three weeks ago. \u201cIt seems like a longer time, right?\u201d said Wilton coach Steve Pearsall, who said he\u2019d remember this Warrior team\u2019s resilience. \u201cThe biggest difference is they definitely have some mojo going. I\u2019ve got to tip my hat. They were stinging their shots, really accurate shooting. \u201cWe were winning faceoffs, so I thought we always had a chance to come back. We weren\u2019t in sync on offense. We were pressing a little once we got down. I wish had the answers. I could\u2019ve fixed it during the game.\u201d Spencer Liston dominated at the faceoff X. But Wilton\u2019s first five faceoff wins resulted in two quick turnovers, two saves and a quick shot wide that went over to the Jesuits. By then, Fairfield Prep led 3-1. Firmender, often defended by Wilton standout Jake Sommer, scored the first goal, with the Jesuits patient to wait until Sommer slid off him to help defend Tim Shannehan. \u201cWhat you\u2019ve got to be able to do when you don\u2019t win faceoffs, you have to clear at high percentage. You\u2019ve got to not foul. You\u2019ve got to score on extra man. You\u2019ve got to ride a little,\u201d Niemi said. \u201cYou can\u2019t fail in the other areas, and we have worked hard on our special teams. I don\u2019t think we fouled today. We\u2019ve worked hard on not fouling. That hides your faceoff differential if you do a whole bunch of other things in regard to possessions in a game.\u201d The Jesuits led 5-1 after one and 8-3 at halftime. They scored on their first four shots of the third quarter. Niemi said Firmender has learned to pick his shots better, saying the talk on the sophomore used to be that he\u2019d score four goals but would need 16 shots. It\u2019s been more like six or seven shots the past few games. \u201cThe team has been shooting over 60 percent this entire postseason,\u201d Firmender said, \u201cso we all have been (picking shots better), really.\u201d email@example.com; @fornabaioctp FAIRFIELD PREP 14, WILTON 5 FAIRFIELD PREP5 3 4 2\u201414 WILTON1 2 1 1\u20145 Records: Fairfield Prep 17-4; Wilton 15-6.
