Excelling in the second half, Greenwich High School’s boys lacrosse team came back from a two-goal halftime deficit to post a 14-10 road victory over Notre Dame-West Haven on Thursday night.

The win got Greenwich back over the .500 mark, as it improved its record to 5-4. Notre Dame-West Haven held a 6-4 lead after two quarters of action, but the Cardinals scored 10 goals in the second half, including five unanswered goals to end the non-conference game.

Sophomore attack Colin Zeller continued the scoring tear he’s been on of late, recording a team-high four goals to propel Greenwich.

“Colin Zeller continues to impress with another four goals, even though he is being shut off or slid to immediately when he touches the ball,” GHS coach Bobby Lutz said.

Sophomore attack Mikey Brescia kept his strong offensive season going, registering three goals and three assists, while freshman attack Dean Kim recorded a hat trick in the winning effort.

Brian Collins, a senior attack/co-captain, was also a key playmaker, tallying one goal and six assists for the Cardinals, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Senior defensive midfielder/co-captain Matthew Trimmer tallied twice, while junior Jake Duda had one goal and junior Adam Kim assisted on a goal for GHS.

Greenwich junior Lane Critchell was 15 for 26 on faceoffs, while teammate Ilan Amaro, a sophomore, made eight saves in goal. Notre Dame-West Haven tied the score at 9-9 early in the fourth quarter, but the Cards capped the game with five consecutive goals for the win.

The Cardinals visit Staples tomorrow for a 1 p.m. matchup in Wesport.
