Greenwich girls hockey blanks Ridgefield, will face New Canaan for FCIAC title

In three games this season, the Ridgefield/Danbury girls hockey team was unable to put the puck in the Greenwich net.

After blanking the Ridgefield Tigers by scores of 6-0 and 4-0 during the regular season, the Greenwich Cardinals added a 3-0 victory over the Tigers in the FCIAC semifinals Wednesday night in Darien.

The top-seeded Cardinals (17-2-1), who defeated Darien for their first FCIAC title last winter, will look to make it a championship repeat when they square off against the No. 2 New Canaan Rams (18-3) in the final at 8:30 p.m., Saturday, at the Darien Ice House.

New Canaan defeated No. 3 Darien 3-2 in double overtime in Wednesday’s late semifinal.

Greenwich has beaten New Canaan twice this season, winning 4-1 on Jan. 15, and 2-1 on Feb. 12.

Ridgefield, the fourth seed, finished the season with an 8-12-1 record.

The Cardinals scored one goal in each period to beat Ridgefield in Wednesday’s semifinal.

Emma Wingrove had the first two goals for Greenwich, both assisted by Jennifer Kelly, and Kelly then netted the third goal with an assist from Sydney Orszulak.

Cardinal goalie Jessie Aselin stopped all 17 of Ridgefield’s shots on net to get the shutout, while Ridgefield received a good performance from sophomore Kendal Mountain, who finished with 33 saves.
