Deerfield Holds on to Beat Wildcats

The Wildcats fell behind 2-0 in the first two minutes of the game and never recovered, eventually falling 3-1 to Deerfield Academy on Wednesday in Meriden. After Deerfield scored on the game’s first two shifts, KUA’s Luca Fantilli took a pass on the wing from Tomas Mazura and beat the Deerfield goalie under the crossbar to cut the lead to 2-1. Bobby May earned the second assist on the play. That was all the offense the Wildcats could summon, however, as the score remained 2-1 until a Deerfield empty-net goal with 30 seconds to play.
