The Wilton 2014 girls team, under Coach Elizabeth Lamond, kicked off its season with a thrilling showdown against New Canaan FC Grey at New Canaan High School on Sunday, Sept. 17. The girls displayed a formidable defense, bolstered by outstanding goalkeeping from Maeve Reilly (first half) and Teagan Reilly (second half) throughout the match.
While the first half saw Wilton and New Canaan both putting up strong competition, the Wilton girls stepped it up in the second half. They rallied together, keeping the ball predominantly in their opponent’s territory. During the second half, Wilton scored one goal, by Wesley Robinson, and came agonizingly close on numerous goal attempts narrowly missing additional opportunities. Ultimately, the game concluded with a 2-1 victory for New Canaan, but the Wilton girl’s performance in the second half showcased their teamwork and determination.
