A sizzling start blazed the way for the Wilton High boys lacrosse team's 17-1\u00a0win Saturday over visiting Fairfield Warde on Senior Night at Fujitani Field. The Warriors, who raised their record to 9-4, opened the game with seven unanswered goals to open a 7-0 lead. Senior co-captain Harrison Bardwell got things going for Wilton\u00a0with an unassisted goal just 1:26 into the game. Eighty seconds later, another Bardwell goal made it 2-0. "Senior Night is special and I wanted to go out and play my best for my fellow teammates that I\u2019ve played with for years and for all the other seniors,\u201d said Bardwell. \u201cAll of the seniors got a chance to play tonight and contribute in some way. Senior Matt Brody was solid in goal for us tonight." Goals from senior John Maudsley, who switched to his left hand to beat the Warde goalie, and sophomore Brian Calabrese pushed Wilton's lead to 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. Wilton tacked on three more goals in the first two minutes of the second quarter to take a commanding 7-0 lead. Calabrese scored on an assist from junior\u00a0Kieran McGovern; junior\u00a0Peter Koch converted\u00a0with Wilton\u00a0on\u00a0a man advantage; and Calabrese added his third goal of the\u00a0game. While the Wilton offense was productive, so, too, was the Warriors' defense, which\u00a0forced Warde\u00a0to work the ball around the perimeter during long, unsuccessful possessions. And when the Mustangs\u00a0did put the ball on net, Brody was there for the save. A goal from Jake Fuss on an assist from Ted Orben finally got Warde on the board\u00a0with just over two minutes left in the first half. But that was also the end of the Mustangs' scoring for the night. After going 10-for-10 on first-half face-offs, Wilton senior RJ Romeo\u00a0won the opening draw of the third quarter and\u00a0cruised down the field unattended\u00a0to score just 12 seconds into the period. Romeo finished the night a perfect 14-for-14 inside\u00a0the circle. The Warriors tallied\u00a0four more goals in the third period to go ahead,\u00a012-1, entering\u00a0the final 12 minutes. Senior Harrison Koch scored twice and senior Michael Brown and junior Jason Spaulding each added one goal. Wilton\u00a0scored five more times in the fourth quarter to complete the\u00a017-1 win. Senior Michael McGroarty, juniors\u00a0Nick DiSanto and Liam Rance, and sophomores Joe Murtha and Connor Drake picked up the goals for Wilton. Notes: Harrison Koch, senior James Arbisi and junior Charlie Hess were credited with two assists apiece for the Warriors. In addition to Harrison Koch, Bardwell, Maudsley, McGroarty, Romeo, Brody, Brown, and Arbisi, Wilton's other seniors are Cory Macdonald, Daniel Walter, Duncan Harris, and Jared Gladstein. Wilton plays its final three regular-season games on the road.
