CANTON, May 12, 2022 – St. Joseph-Trumbull isn’t ranked in the top 10 of the state high school girls lacrosse coaches poll. But the Cadets have five games on their schedule against teams currently in the top 10 including No. 1 Darien, No. 2 New Canaan and No. 5 Ridgefield.

St. Joseph (9-6) used that experience to race out to a seven-goal lead and beat the Warriors, 13-7, in a non-conference game Thursday on the turf field. Isabelle Carucci had six goals for the Cadets while Maddigan Kife added four.

Jordan Defina and Mary DeRitis each had two goals for the Warriors (9-3) while Gabby DelSanto, Ellie Bahre and Heather Delbone each had a goal. Goalie Ava Dakin made 13 saves for Canton.

On Tuesday, Canton won their fourth straight game with a 9-6 win over Suffield. Gabby DelSanto and Heather Delbone had three goals each for the Warriors. Dakin made 11 save sin net to secure the win.
