Wilton tops Yorktown, wins Turnbull Cup (updated)
Getting a signature road victory, the Wilton High boys lacrosse team edged host Yorktown (N.Y.) by a score of 11-9 on Wednesday night.
The victory came in the teams' 31st annual Turnbull Cup game, which is named for former Yorktown coach Jim Turnbull.
Yorktown led 7-5 at halftime, but the Warriors began the third quarter with a four-goal flurry to go ahead to stay, 9-7, with 4:46 left in the third period.
After Yorktown scored to close within one, the Warriors got a goal with 50 seconds remaining in the quarter to pull ahead, 10-8, entering the final 12 minutes.
Dom Cioffi's goal cut Yorktown's deficit to 10-9 with 10:16 to play, but the Huskers were held scoreless the rest of the way. Harrison Bardwell scored for Wilton with just under two minutes left to secure the victory.
Harrison Koch had two goals and three assists for the Warriors. Kieran McGovern, RJ Romeo, Michael Brown, AJ Hoffmann, Connor Drake, Brian Calabrese, John Maudsley, Peter Koch, and Bardwell added one goal apiece.
Justin Cavallo had a first-half hat trick to lead Yorktown, which dropped to 10-6 with the loss.
Notes: It was Wilton's first Turnbull Cup victory since a 12-11 triumph in 2012. Yorktown had won the last three meetings, including a 10-9 triumph in 2015.
The Warriors, who improved their record to 10-4, are back in action tomorrow (Thursday, May 12) with a conference game at Fairfield Ludlowe (8-4). Wilton finishes the regular season on Saturday at home against Norwalk (5-8).
