Seizing a quick six-goal lead and scoring 10 first-half goals, Greenwich High School’s boys lacrosse team opened its season in impressive fashion Tuesday night, night topping host Norwalk, 14-3, in an FCIAC game.
“It was a good opening game,” Greenwich coach Bobby Lutz said. “We jumped out to a 7-0 lead and then a 10-1 halftime score, so I was able to rotate in the entire bench and play a lot of younger players. We are very young and inexperienced on ‘D’, so it was good to get those guys playing time.”
Freshman Mickey Brescia registered two goals and three assists, while senior Flynn Milledge also tallied two goals and three assists for the Cardinals (1-0).
“The offense worked the ball around well and it was nice to finally see some live action,” Lutz said. “We had 10 assists on 13 goals, so it was great team offense.”
Senior Bryce Metalios scored three goals and had one assist, while senior Quinn Warwick also had a hat trick in the winning effort. Junior Brian Collins had one goal and three assists for the Cards, who received three saves from senior goalie Charlie Zola and four saves from senior netminder Kevin Keaveney.
Sophomore Bobby Jones and freshman Colin Zeller posted one goal apiece for Greenwich, which saw Warwick win nine faceoffs. Greenwich is in action again on Saturday against Mamaroneck in a none-conference matchup at 1 p.m.
