Football: Warriors travel to McMahon looking for second win
Coming off last week's come-from-behind overtime win against Fairfield Warde, the Wilton High football team will look to improve to 2-0 tonight when the Warriors travel to Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk for a 7 p.m. game.
The Senators (0-1) will be looking to get into the win column, having lost to Staples 38-13 in last week's opener.
Last weekend, the Warriors (1-0) rallied from a 14-7 halftime deficit to beat Warde in OT, 21-14, at home.
After a Wilton fumble, Bryan Azarian sliced through the Wilton goal line defense for a three-yard TD run, and Dave Summers’ extra point gave Warde 7-0 lead at 6:43 of the first quarter.
The Warriors responded with a 65-yard drive, capped off by a 27-yard touchdown pass from Matt D'Elisa to Joe Pozzi. Will Sullivan’s extra point tied the game at 7-7.
Warde answered right back, as Azarian collected Summers’ screen pass and ran 62 yards to give Warde a 14-7 lead at 11:44 of the second quarter.
D’Elisa's interception in the end zone thwarted Fairfield's final drive of the first half.
Neither team scored in the third quarter, with Wilton taking over at its own five-yard with about a minute left in the period. What followed was an eight and a half minute, 95-yard touchdown drive that tied the game up with 7:38 left in the fourth quarter. The high point was four straight carries by Harvey Alexander, who advanced the ball 62 yards from the Wilton 24 to the Warde 14. Litton finished off the drive with a two-yard TD carry.
The Mustangs missed a 21-yard field goal attempt and Sullivan was short on 49 yarder as the clock ran out, and the game went into overtime.
D’Elisa scored on a 10-yard run to put Wilton up 21-14 on the first possession of overtime, and the defense held to seal the win.
