Mustangs defeat Trumbull, advance in states

Senior Darci Byington scored two goals and assisted on another while goalkeeper Katie Stepsis stood tall in the second half to lead No 13 Fairfield Warde to a 4-0 victory over the 20th-seeded Eagles in the opening round of the Class L state tournament Monday afternoon at Warde’s Tetreau-Davis Field.
Warde scored two goals in the first half, one by Byington in the sixth minute and another by fellow senior captain Kelly Milicia with 7:25 remaining, then put the game away with two more goals over the first four minutes of the second half.
With the victory, Warde (9-6-1) earned a date with No. 4 Conard in a first-round game Wednesday in West Hartford. It was payback for a disappointing 2-1 setback against Trumbull late in the regular season, a win that vaulted the Eagles into the state tournament for the first time since 2008.
