After making short work of its South-West Conference rivals so far this season the Weston High girls lacrosse team set its sights on a couple of non-league opponents last week.Unbeaten in league play, the Trojans got to see how well they stood up against a pair of teams from the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference when they hosted Trumbull last Monday, April 23. Their attack remained just as sharp as they outscored the visitors 14-8.
Trumbull had difficulty stopping the Trojans, who benefited from six players finding the net. Lindsay Koch led the team with five goals. Catie Ledwick (four assists), Fran Holmes (three assists), Nicole DeCanio (two assists) and Stephanie Thomson (one assist) all scored twice. Alexa Werner scored one goal with one assist.
Carolyn Figliola made 16 saves in goal for Weston.
Visiting Norwalk on Saturday, the Trojans still had plenty left over when they took on another FCIAC team, Brien McMahon. The Senators had slightly better luck in penetrating Weston’s defenses but the former still kept up its attack in a 15-10 win.
Emerging as Weston’s leading scorer in recent games, Koch led Weston with a season-high eight goals. She also had two assists and won six draw controls.
Koch also had plenty of help on attack from her teammates. DeCanio, Werner (three draw controls) and Holmes (two assists) each scored twice for Weston. Thomson scored one (two assists). Grace Mattison won six draw controls.
Figliola made 11 saves in goal for Weston.
In between these contests the Trojans had some more familiar competition when they faced SWC opponent Stratford on Wednesday. The Red Devils also got a taste of Weston’s scoring ability as the hosts won 14-2.
The victory was also Weston’s eighth of the season and allowed it to qualify for the state Class S tournament.
Once again Weston turned to Koch, who led the team with seven goals. Holmes (three assists) and Thomson (one assist) each netted three and DeCanio (one assist) scored one.
Stefanie Buffa had two assists while Michaela Dyson and Werner had one apiece.
Figliola made five saves for Weston, now 9-1 overall. It visits North Branford on Friday at 5 p.m. and is at Newtown on Tuesday at 7.
