Wilton Blue 7, Trumbull 1
Wilton’s offense and defense dominated both halves, allowing the team to take 21 shots on goal in the first half and 14 more in the second half. Despite going into halftime up 2-0 on goals by Addison Bergin and Griffin Casey, Wilton could have had a bigger lead if not for a great effort by the Trumbull goalie. However, Wilton quickly wore down its opponent in the second half and connected more often, as Declan Zadourian, Wyatt Jones and Luka Andjelkovic each scored a goal and Cole van den Heuvel added two goals. Solid defensive play throughout the game by Luke Umphred, Charlie Clune and Luke Ginsburg — and great goalie play by Henry Roy in the first half and Jamie Whittaker in the second half — held Trumbull to only one goal.
