Wilton 5 Blue (22) – Weston (7)
The Wilton 5 Blue Warriors put together their third win of the season after a decisive victory over Weston this past weekend. The tempo of the game was quickly established by Wilton’s offensive line of Burke, Totten, Turner, Enman, Cristini, Kress and Randol. Wilton was able to run the ball inside the tackles for significant chunks of yardage. After a fumble recovery by Randol, deep in Weston territory, Wilton was able to punch it in on a Stengrim run up the middle. Capone added the two-point conversion. On the next series, after Wilton’s defense forced Weston to punt, runs by Guglielmo and Colavecchio moved the ball down the field behind solid blocking. Liston scored the second touchdown of the day on a 35-yard run up the sidelines, bringing the score to 14-0.
After a 55-yard run by Petrides on the first play of the second half, Wilton was able to score their third touchdown of the morning on an off-tackle run by Capone. Petrides added the two-point conversion on another bulldozing run up the middle. Wilton defense was stifling all morning long with big tackles by Kress, Turner, Petrides and Walden. Defensive linemen Snyder and Garcia were able to push back the offense and control the line of scrimmage, holding Weston to minimal rushing yardage. For the remainder of the game Wilton was able to control the ball and the clock. Runs by Colavecchio and Montanero chewed up significant chucks of yardage and time.
