Lauren Beccaria’s second goal of the game with 14:37 left to play gave the Fairfield Ludlowe field hockey team a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Wilton in Friday’s season opener in Fairfield.

The Warriors opened the scoring less than four minutes into the game on a goal by Jess Hendry, but couldn’t add to the lead despite dominating the first, with an 11-1 edge in corners and 6-2 edge in shots on goal.

Beccaria tied the game with 1:22 left in the first half.

The second half was a little more evenly played, with Wilton again unable to finish on repeated scoring chances.

Beccaria scored the game-winner on a Ludlowe corner, lifting a rebound into the top of the cage.
