Warde ends skein with 5-4 win over Ludlowe

Fairfield Warde broke a nine-year curse with neighboring Fairfield Ludlowe in boys lacrosse, when coach Tom Cunningham’s Mustangs rode the netminding of Jason Nerreau in defeating the Falcons, 5-4, at Taft Field on Tuesday.
“Everyone contributed from the seniors on down,” Cunningham said. “We were led by our defense and Jay in goal. He made stop after stop.”
Ludlowe coach Chris Parisi agreed. “We got a bunch of looks we wanted, but Jason was too much (for us) tonight.”
Warde took a 5-2 lead on a great passing sequence from Kyle Scheetz, to Jake Fuss to Brendan King, who cut in from the right side of Ludlowe keeper John Carey to score with 1:25 left in the third quarter.
Lorin Tobey’s rocket from 25 yards out with 26 seconds remaining in the period brought Ludlowe within 5-3 with 12 minutes to play.
The Falcons looked to pour it on, and did score at 5:58 of the final frame on Trevor Demilt’s goal off a pass from Riley Larson.
Nerreau was the difference maker down the stretch, however, as the senior keeper stonewalled Ludlowe at 3:10, 2:05 and with 15 seconds left to play.
