Controversy marred Wednesday night’s boys soccer game between Wilton and Darien at Kristine Lilly Field, as a questionable call helped the Blue Wave come away with a 1-1 tie.
With the score 0-0, Darien was awarded a direct kick outside the Wilton box to the left of the Wilton net. A Blue Wave player lofted a shot on goal toward the right post, and the referee blew his whistle for an apparent offside violation on Darien. Wilton goalie Michael Legaz heard the whistle and stopped playing, and the ball hit off the post and went into the net. The referee reversed his offsides call and allowed the goal to stand.
