For a team that graduated its best scorers since last year the Weston High boys lacrosse team seemed to have no trouble finding the net in its season-opener.
Visiting Bethel on Thursday, April 4, the Trojans soon got their attack up to speed. Defensively, they did not fare badly either, not allowing any goals in a 14-0 win to start the season.
Weston kept its attack fairly even over the first three quarters, netting four goals in each. Making frequent substitutions by the time the fourth frame arrived, they tacked on two more to seal the win.
Eight different players found the net for Weston. Sean Fumai led with five goals. He also had one assist.
Alex Crowell (three assists) scored two, as did Richie Miller. Troy Flynn, Micah Zirn, Matt Sargent, Austin Drimal and Alex Sydney each netted one. Oliver Smith had two assists and Eli Page and Peter Lummis had one apiece.
Grant Limone and Adam Byer combined for the shutout in goal, the former making two saves and the latter making one.
The Trojans faced much more of a challenge on Saturday in a non-league game at Glastonbury, a team that defeated them 9-7 a year ago. Having a better idea of what to expect from the competition this time, the defense was up to the challenge in a 7-3 win.
The hosts also put up some good defense in the first half, holding Weston to just a pair of goals yet good enough for a 2-1 lead. Both sides stepped up the scoring a bit in the next yet the Trojans remained in control.
Fumai led Weston with three goals. He also had an assist.
Drimal, Lummis, Flynn (one assist) and Page (one assist) all netted one apiece. Miller had one assist.
Limone had 15 saves in goal for Weston, which visits North Rockland, N.Y. on Saturday before hosting Newtown on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
