After being edged by Mamaroneck, Greenwich’s boys lacrosse team got back on the winning track in a big way Tuesday in a non-conference road game against Weston.
Controlling possession, the Cardinals capitalized on their opportunities on offense, registering a decisive 14-5 win over Weston. Greenwich began its first three games on the road and has a record of 2-1, heading into tomorrow’s home-opener against FCIAC rival Staples. Tomorrow’s key matchup is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. at Cardinal Stadium.
“We needed a bounce back game after Mamaroneck, so it was nice to get a win after three consecutive road games to start the season,” Greenwich coach Bobby Lutz said. “This gives us a little bit of momentum heading into our home-opener against Staples on Thursday.”
Senior attack Bryce Metalios continued his early season scoring surge, tallying four goals and one assist to pace Greenwich against Weston. Freshman Mikey Brescia recorded two goals and two assists, while senior midfielder Flynn Milledge had two goals and one assist for the Cardinals.
Midfielder Quinn Warwick, a senior, scored two goals and won 11 of the 15 faceoffs he took, enabling the Cards to control the ball. Senior goalie Charlie Zola had a standout game, registering 14 saves.
“Winning faceoffs and making saves always puts a team in a position to win, so Warwick and Zola were the co-MVPs,” Lutz said.
Senior midfielder James Pilc had one goal and one assist, junior Brian Collins assisted on two goals and senior Reid Anderson and senior Wesley Zolin added one goal apiece for the victors.
