Scoring 11 goals in the first half, Greenwich’s boys lacrosse team overpowered Trumbull, 15-0, in an FCIAC matchup held at Cardinal Stadium on Thursday.
The win extended Greenwich’s winning streak to three games and moved its record to 8-3 overall. In Thursday’s one-sided triumph against Trumbull, senior attack Bryce Metalios continued his scoring onslaught, recording five goals and two assists to power the Cardinals.
Senior midfielder Flynn Milledge notched three goals and one assist, while senior Nate Duffy and freshman Colin Zeller each had two goals and one assist to also pace the Cardinals.
Greenwich led 5-0 after the first quarter, 11-0 at halftime and 15-0 following three quarters.
“It was another solid first half for the starters, which was great because it gives them some rest and gives the backups quality minutes,” Greenwich coach Bobby Lutz said. “We have had groups in the past that did not jump out against teams early enough and we would play down instead of putting them away to give the younger players some minutes.”
Senior midfielder Quinn Warwick tallied twice, while freshman Mikey Brescia added one goal and three assists in the winning effort. Senior midfielder James Pilc assisted on two goals, as did junior Brian Collins.
Warwick was 9 of 11 on faceoffs and seniors Charlie Zola and Kevin Keaveney each made three saves in goal for Greenwich, which hosts Danbury Monday at 6 p.m.
“This group moves the ball well on offense, plays solid team defense, and we are winning faceoffs and the possession game,” Lutz said.
In a game featuring hot hitting by both teams, Greenwich dropped a 17-11 decision to Ridgefield on the road on Thursday.
The Tigers (11-2) scored five runs in the second inning, erupted for seven runs in the fourth inning and added five more in the sixth inning on their way to the win.
Ridgefield led 5-0 after the second inning and 12-2 after the fourth inning. The Cardinals closed to within 12-11 by scoring four runs in the fifth inning and five runs in the sixth inning, before the Tigers added five runs in the sixth.
