Greenwich High School’s boys lacrosse team dropped a tough 11-10 decision to a strong Mamaroneck team in a non-conference game held in Mamaroneck, N.Y., on Saturday.
Senior midfielder Quinn Warwick registered five goals and one assist, while senior attack Bryce Metalios scored four goals to pace the Cardinals (1-1), who opened their season earlier this week with a 14-3 road win against Norwalk.
Flynn Milledge, a senior midfielder added one goal and three assists for Greenwich against the Tigers, who held the possession advantage in this matchup.
“The offense and defense played great, but giving Mamaroneck’s three D1 players that many more chances to score is never going to end well,” Greenwich coach Bobby Lutz said. “Metalios continues to be a threat anywhere near the goal.”
Freshman Mikey Brescia had two assists, junior Brian Collins assisted on one goal and senior James Pilc had one assist for the Cardinals, who received 10 saves from senior goalie Charlie Zola.
“Mikey Brescia has been the biggest surprise,” Lutz said. “He is small but tough and plays like a player twice his size.”
Greenwich visits Weston on Tuesday, then hosts FCIAC rival Staples on Thursday at 5 p.m.
