Shelton 3, Wilton White 1

Wilton White played a tough game against a strong Shelton team on Sunday at Ambler Farm. The first-half offensive and midfield players, including Abby Petrie, Remi Morello, Sadie Klyver, Emily Baer, Lauren Moe, Gigi McWhorter, Teagan Strengrim and Melissa Ongley, kept the pressure on Shelton’s defense, driving the ball downfield consistently and passing effectively. Addison Dobson, Jenna Peterson and Ella Breitenbach were a formidable defense, keeping Shelton out of scoring range and moving the ball up to offensive players. First-half goalie Mary Kate Doyle had a great save against a strong Shelton drive, but was unable to stop a high shot on goal that dropped in behind her or a ball shot off a sudden Shelton breakaway following a throw-in.

In the second half, goalies Sadie Klyver and Remi Morello allowed only one point for Shelton, thanks to good defensive playing by Jenna Peterson, Teagan Stengrim and Addison Dobson. Ella Breitenbach and Mary Kate Doyle led a strong offense that benefitted from effective field coverage by Melissa Ongley, Emily Baer, Lauren Moe, Abby Petrie and Gigi McWhorter. While the Shelton goalie was able to block a strong shot by Abby Petrie, she could not defend against a shot from Ella Breitenbach off a pass from Mary Kate Doyle. It was an exciting game between two well-matched teams, but in the end Shelton came out on top, 3-1.

Under-12


Trumbull 3, Wilton Blue 0

Wilton Blue goalies Grace Duvall and Hannah Fitzgerald had their hands full Sunday afternoon in a 3-0 loss to a tough Trumbull team. Both goalies had to make several key stops at the beginning of their time in net in order to keep Wilton close. Fullbacks Caitlin Allen, Amanda Prather, Georgia Russnok, Miya Lasher, Ella Savage, Sienna McDermott, Caitlin Ongley and Taylor Felipe did a great job with Trumbull’s skilled strikers and midfielders as they were able to step up and stop many offensive breaks. Midfielders Isabel DiNanno, Whitney Hess, Charlotte Casiraghi, Morgan Felipe, Anya Iyer, Natalie Cronin, Kelly Holmgren and Mary Scally worked hard to forward the ball to Olivia Mannino and Larsen Burke at attack, but Trumbull’s strong fullbacks kept Wilton from getting the ball to the box, keeping Wilton from scoring.

Wilton’s best chance to score came in the first half when DiNanno sent a ball through the middle to a streaking Hess, but Trumbull’s goalie and fullback deflected the ball away at the last second before Hess was able to get a shot on goal. Trumbull’s goals were not pretty, mostly coming from scrambles in front of Wilton’s net — which highlights how well Wilton’s defense played during the game.

Charlie Roy and Maddox Backman each scored two goals, with Roy narrowly missing a hat trick late in the game and Backman scoring late in the game on a pretty set piece on a free kick taken by Steph Cross. Alessandro Ochoa and Luke Perna each added nice-looking, well-executed goals. Throughout the game, Matt DeMasi, Evan Lalor, Amit Solomon and Will Soucy battled their Westport counterparts with speed and grit and helped maintain consistent ball pressure.
