Following a 20-goal outburst in its season-opener against Norwalk, the Greenwich High School girls lacrosse team continued to register goals at an impressive pace when it visited Glastonbury this past Tuesday.

Receiving a game-high six goals from junior Emma Abbazia, the Cardinals raised their record to 2-0 with a resounding 16-2 road triumph against Glastonbury in a non-conference game.

Abbazia, who scored four goals in Greenwich’s season-opening 20-4 victory over Norwalk, added one assist to go along with her six goals against Glastonbury.

Senior Cece Tauber, who also totaled four goals against Norwalk, also sparked the Cardinals’ offense versus Glastonbury, recording five goals and two assists. Sophomore Aubrey Roth also paced Greenwich, tallying two goals and one assist.
