With fall sports winding down, Alex K. and “Warrior Sports Week on GMW” were on the scene for both the Wilton High School field hockey team’s heartbreaking overtime loss in the Class L State Tournament Semifinals against Darien, as well as the WHS football team’s amazing 28-7 regular season finish against Shelton.
That win will propel the Warriors to the CIAC postseason playoffs ranked no. 2 in the Class MM division — and puts the team at no. 8 statewide. It also earned the team a home-field advantage in the first round quarterfinals game Tuesday night, Nov. 28 at 6:30 p.m.
Further down below this week’s episode, find out how the WHS girls swimming team did in the Class L State Finals as well as the State Open.
