WILTON, Conn. Wilton 4 White and Wilton 4 Blue both won their Fairfield County Football League semifinals last weekend. Under league tradition, when two teams from the same town make the championship game, they are awarded a co-championship. Wilton White defeated New Canaan Red, 15-8, and Wilton Blue topped New Canaan Black, 28-6.
The following is a recap of the Wilton 4 Blue game.
Wilton fourth-grade Blue capped off an undefeated season by dismantling a talented New Canaan team. It controlled both sides of the ball as it has all season by putting up 21 points in the first quarter and not allowing a first down on defense. Wilton was lead by the dynamic duo of Kyle Hyzy (one touchdown) and Reilly Sullivan (two touchdowns), who both rushed for more than 100 yards and R2 DiRocco who scampered in for an 8-yard touchdown.
Wilton's offensive line continued its season-long dominant ways by pushing around the overmatched New Canaan defense, led by Jack Savarese, Noah Levi, Dominick Polito, Matthew Dooley, Jack Lenz, Andrew Travers, Jack Mariani, Drew Saumier and Jack DiRocco, who also chipped in some tough running between tackles in the second half to ice the game.
Wilton's defense, which gave up the fewest points in the league over the season, matched the impressive performance of the offense, which was the highest-scoring line. The defense was lead by Jack Savarese and the rest of the D-Line of Levi, Polito, Patrick Burke, Steven Tuin, Anthony Andre, Cole Snyder, Matthew McVey, Brady Kuczo, Alex Buse and Clyde Tinnen. Wilton's linebackers and defensive backs of Hyzy, DiRocco, DiRocco, Sullivan and Jake Zeyher shut down every attempt mounted by their opponent to get back into the game.
Both DiRoccos made many tackles from their outside linebacker positions and forced New Canaan to try the middle. That proved fruitless as Savarese was too much for New Canaan to handle, as he and Levi shut down the Rams running game. When they tried to go to the air, Zeyher intercepted a third quarter pass. He also made a spectacular tackle at the 1-yard line on the last play of the game to thwart New Canaan's last attempt.
The Wilton fourth-grade Blue finished the season at 10-0 and shared the championship with the Wilton White fourth-grade team, which also finished 10-0.
