The Norwalk White U13 boys lacrosse team stood strong against Wilton before dropping a 7-3 decision in its season opener Tuesday at Wilton High School.
Norwalk was within striking distance late in the game before Wilton connected with late tallies to put it away. Mitchell Bartolo, Kelly Gouin and Jack Stafford scored for Norwalk.
Goalies Brian Quick (nine saves) and Jimmy Bierne (eight) helped keep Norwalk close. Will Haskell, Ayinde Johnson and Shane Kilcoyne anchored a tight defense.
Norwalk returns to action Saturday when it hosts Darien at Veterans Park at 4:30 p.m.
