Wilton girls hoop routs Rams for 17th straight win

In the second and fourth quarters, the Wilton High girls basketball team outscored host New Canaan by a combined three points Thursday evening.

In the first and third quarters, however, the total was 37 points.

That dominance resulted in a 40-point victory, 69-29, for Wilton over the Rams.

The victory was the Warriors' 17th straight, boosting their record to 17-1 with two regular-season games to play.

Wilton will likely clinch the top seed for the upcoming FCIAC playoffs if it beats Fairfield Warde next Wednesday in the Warriors' Senior Night game at the Zeoli Field House. The two teams are currently tied for first place in the conference standings.

On Thursday night, Wilton outscored New Canaan, 20-5, in the first quarter. Each team scored 12 points in the second period, leaving the Warriors with a 32-17 halftime lead.

Wilton then settled matters in the third quarter, pouring in 26 points to four for New Canaan and going ahead, 58-21, entering the final eight minutes.

Four Warriors reached double figures, led by Erica Meyer with 18 points. Erin Cunningham added 17 points, Karen Brosko had 14 points, and Haley English contributed 11 points.

Campbell Armstrong scored 10 points for New Canaan, which dropped to 8-10 overall.
