NEW HAVEN COUNTY AREA STANDINGS
This is a game I should not have to fire them up for. You saw it against Trinity (Catholic) and you even saw it against Warde. We are coming out slow and I don’t know why. (Laudati) did the same thing; the big guys from Trinity did the same thing (Alex) Preston (of Darien) did. The problem was it took us two quarters to figure it out.”
Wilton coach Joel Geriak told the Stamford Advocate following Wilton’s second loss, 69-59 to Ridgefield.
