Darien hasn’t been faced with many deficits during the past two weeks of the girls soccer season.

So when Wilton’s Lindsay Groves scored on a long free kick in the 35th minute of Thursday’s game, it was a splash of cold water for the Wave.

“In the first half, we were just slightly off in the connection, not quite getting the touches we needed to,” senior Ellen Harnisch said. “And after that first goal, it was a real wake-up call.”

And the Wave answered the alarm.

Senior co-captain Eilanna Dolan scored the equalizer in the 60th minutes, and Harnisch netted the winner with 9:59 to play as Darien defeated the Wilton Warriors, 2-1, at the Darien High School oval.
