RIDGEFIELD \u2014 One of his Ridgefield boys lacrosse teammates told Matt Shepard that Wilton wanted to shoot low Saturday afternoon on the junior goalie. He was ready with a handful of big stops in the second half to preserve a lead, and the No. 2 Tigers pulled away late to beat No. 4 Wilton 11-7 at Tiger Hollow. \u201cI haven\u2019t been doing that good on my down-low shots,\u201d Shepard said. \u201cI just knew what was coming. Watch their stick, watch their shoulders, sometimes watch their eyes and know where it was going.\u201d Freshman attackman Kyle Colsey scored five goals in the second half, including back-to-back tallies to erase a 6-5 Warriors lead and give Ridgefield the lead for good. Shepard\u2019s save in tight on Wilton\u2019s Jackson Kelly off a sharp Will Hughes feed kept it 8-7. C.J. Lauretani scored on a rebound a little over two minutes later, and Colsey finished it off with two goals late. \u201cWe had great looks,\u201d Wilton coach Steve Pearsall said. \u201cHe made some great saves. Give him credit for that. Bottom line, we\u2019ve got to shoot better. We had some weak shots in the beginning of the game. At the end, would\u2019ve been nice to bury that one. It happens. \u201cAgainst a team like Ridgefield, we have to capitalize on our opportunities and bury our shots when we have them.\u201d Both teams were coming off top-five, FCIAC losses, Ridgefield (4-1, 2-1 conference) to No. 1 Darien, Wilton (2-3, 0-2) to No. 5 New Canaan. This capped a run of four top-10 home games for Ridgefield, in fact, including wins over New Canaan and No. 6 Fairfield Prep. The season began with a win over defending-from-2019 Class S champion St. Joseph. \u201cWhen we started the season, I knew what the first five games were. I knew it was a little bit of a gauntlet,\u201d Ridgefield coach Roy Colsey said, \u201cbut man, I\u2019m exhausted. \u201cNo. 1, every game has required just a ridiculous amount of coaching and adjustments and reminding the guys what we\u2019re trying to do and what needs to be done. We\u2019re playing against good teams that, when you make a mistake, they\u2019re going to capitalize.\u201d ONE UNIT Until late, Saturday\u2019s game was close. The biggest lead had been the Warriors\u2019 4-2 advantage after one quarter on goals from four different players. A fifth made it 5-4, but Ridgefield ran off three goals in a row, capped by Luke Winkler\u2019s third with 9.5 seconds left in the third quarter. \u201cWe came out on the short end with New Canaan and Ridgefield, but we\u2019re playing with the top teams, right?\u201d Pearsall said. \u201cI hate to say you need a loss to get it going, but we\u2019re facing a little adversity here and we\u2019ll see what we\u2019re made of, see if we can bounce back.\u201d CONTROL DRAWS Spencer Liston helped Wilton dominate possession off faceoffs early; Kai Prohaszka evened it out a bit for Ridgefield, as he has several times in the early going. It\u2019s not what Roy Colsey would prefer to do, since Prohaszka\u2019s also the Tigers\u2019 best defender. HELP YOUR BROTHER Roy Colsey said his older son, junior attackman Ryan, was nursing a groin injury that kept him from dodging much. Ryan Colsey still had a goal and an assist. QUOTABLE \u201cHopefully we\u2019re over the hump. ... A quarter of the season is done. I\u2019m hoping one of these games we\u2019re going to come out and look like we\u2019ve played some lacrosse prior to this game because we\u2019re still making so many mistakes. It\u2019s fine in the beginning of the season, but we really need to move past that.\u201d \u2014Ridgefield coach Roy Colsey mfornabaio @ctpost.com; @fornabaioctp RIDGEFIELD 11, WILTON 7 WILTON4 0 1 2\u2014 7 RIDGEFIELD2 2 3 4\u201411 Records: Wilton 2-3, 0-2 FCIAC; Ridgefield 4-1, 2-1.
