Wilton snaps scoreless skid, beats Stamford, 3-2
After being shut out in its previous two games, the Wilton High boys soccer team finally found the back of the net Monday, scoring three times to defeat host Stamford, 3-2.
The victory ended a two-game losing streak for the Warriors, who are now 6-3-2 this season.
Stamford, which is 0-5-1 over its last six games, got on the scoreboard first with a goal in the fifth minute to take an early 1-0 lead.
Wilton, however, kept up its aggressive play and got the game-tying goal in the 32nd minute, as David Schneidman scored on assists from Jack Brandt and Harry Allers.
The Warriors forged ahead in the 58th minute. This time it was Allers who found the back of the net, assisted by Brandt, giving the visitors a 2-1 lead.
Josh Reeves then converted the rebound off a corner kick in the 68th minute to increase Wilton's lead to 3-1.
Down by two goals, Stamford began taking more chances on offense, and the strategy paid off when the Black Knights scored with just over two minutes to play to close within a goal.
But the Warriors held their ground for the victory, keeping Stamford scoreless the rest of the way.
