Greenwich High School girls lax falls to New Canaan in FCIAC semis

The Greenwich High School girls lacrosse team fell behind 6-0 early and weren’t able to recover, falling to New Canaan High School in the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference semifinals, 14-6 earlier today at Dunning Field.

“The rhythm wasn’t there and the overall effort wasn’t there,” GHS head coach Caitlin Keane said. “I am a little disappointed with how we came out, but the second half we stayed tied with them. Imagine if we played the first half like we did the second half.”

Three of Greenwich High’s goals were scored by Carolyn Paletta, while the trio of Emme Christie, Sophie Waine and Sarah Rider each finished with one goal.

For New Canaan, Olivia Hompe led all scorers with four goals and one assist, while Eilzabeth Miller added three goals. Brianna McEwan, Isabel Taben and Katie DeMarino each finished with two goals.

“It was crucial for us to come up with those draw controls,” New Canaan head coach Kristin Woods. “I think we came up with the first six draw controls. That set the tone. Possession is everything in this game.”

With the victory, the Rams will advance to Wednesday’s FCIAC championship game. Greenwich High will wait to start play in the class L playoffs, which get underway next week.
