“Hopefully, (Peter) Vomvolakis (injured) returns for Saturday and Wednesday because we need to win one of those games to qualify for states,” Greenwich coach Bobby Lutz said. “One player does not make or break a team, but we are so young and have no depth that losing him since the New Canaan game has hurt so much more than we expected.”

Centerfielder Wyatt Gibson drove in two runs and Tommy Passamano and John McHugh had one hit apiece for the Cardinals. Passamano and McHugh each pitched for Greenwich.
