Under constant light rain, the Wilton High boys varsity golf team prevailed over the Mustangs of Fairfield Warde in a match decided by just six\u00a0strokes, 178 to 184, on Monday. Contested at Smith Richardson Golf Course in Fairfield, the 3,154-yard front nine yielded an effective and balanced scoring effort by the Warriors. Freshman Robert Hickey medaled for a third time in his team\u2019s FCIAC play, returning a card of 43. The required support was provided by senior co-captain Matt Greeff and sophomores Jack Cromwell and\u00a0Devin Filaski, all\u00a0penciling in a 45 swing total. The win, third in\u00a0their last four matches for the Warriors (5-9), demonstrated a clear and continuing improvement in the young team\u2019s competitive performance. The 184 total produced was 11\u00a0strokes lower than an earlier season encounter at Smith-Richardson versus Fairfield Ludlowe\u2019s five.McMahonWilton was\u00a0coming off a win over Brien McMahon last Thursday at Oak Hills Golf Course in Norwalk. The Warriors responded to the previous day\u2019s loss to Ridgefield with a season-low team total of 166 strokes to effectively dispatch McMahon\u2019s 210 score. Wilton\u2019s 2017 best was led by Filaski\u2019s solid 38 card, but the team total enjoyed strong, well-balanced support form Hickey and and fellow freshman Drew Saumier with 42s and senior co-captain Matt Greeff\u2019s return of 44. Jack Cromwell\u2019s effort of 45 was not required in the four low scores match format. Birdie? Supplied by Filaski on Oak Hills' 307-yard elevated tee,\u00a0elevated green, par 4 fourth. His tee shot left 108 yards in to a hidden flagstick. The second swing with a 56-degree wedge left an 18-foot putt downhill and wide right to left. Filaski met that challenge. Coach Jack Majesky said\u00a0the 166 effort was simply the team playing to its clear potential \u2014 and a harbinger of good things to come from their final two FCIAC \u00a0encounters next week.
