Wilton girls soccer team pours on goals in 6-0 win

Several hours before Thursday night’s girls soccer game at Kristine Lilly Field, the rain stopped. But that didn't prevent Trinity Catholic from getting hit with a downpour.

Wilton began the contest raining goals on the Crusaders, as the hosts scored six times in the first 25 minutes.

At that point the Warriors opted to put the brakes on their scoring deluge, and a fog rolled in and made it difficult for the fans and the referees to see the action They didn't miss any more goals, however, as Wilton came away with a 6-0 triumph over winless Trinity (0-12).

Wilton (6-1-6) posted a 1-0 lead exactly one minute into the contest. Annika Sheehan sent a centering pass from the wing and Ashley Vitarelli was there to put the ball in the net over the Crusaders' keeper.

Haley English’s goal then made it 2-0. English got behind the Trinity back line and went ono-on-one with the keeper, tucking the ball into the corner of the net.

Bridget Dwyer’s goal upped the lead to 3-0. Dwyer gained control of the ball about 30 yards out, dribbled toward the goal unmarked, and drilled a low shot in the net.

Madison Peraino’s goal made it 4-0 in favor of the home team, and two goals by Rebecca Hersch closed the scoring with 9:55 to play in the first half.

With his team ahead 6-0, Wilton head coach John Salvatore called off the troops and had his team control the ball and make no further attempt to score. Salvatore rotated pretty much his whole bench into the game, including players called up from the JV squad, giving the starters some rest ahead of tomorrow's game in Greenwich.

Cecily Freliech started in goal for the Warriors, and Hana Previte came in and relieved Freliech in the second half. Neither Warrior goalie recorded a save.
