Lindsay Dimonekas came off the bench and Katie Ramsay came alive to give Darien a big second half boost in its first FCIAC victory of the season.

Darien beat Central 57-33 at Bridgeport on Friday, led by Chrissie Fiore with 20 game-leading points.

“We were able to break a three-game losing streak and get our first FCIAC victory,” said coach Steve Dunn. “The girls played very aggressively on defense, getting a season-high 16 steals and five blocks.”

The Wave improves to 3-3 overall and 1-3 FCIAC. Central is 1-7, 1-4.

“We also set a season-high with 16 assists as we were looking for each other and sharing the ball very well,” said Dunn. “Hopefully this will kick-start us onto a streak of wins as we look to improve each game and gain experience.”

Ashley Humphrey scored 12 points for the Wave.

“We received a big lift from Lindsay Dimonekas off the bench and Katie Ramsay came alive in the third quarter to help us put the game away,” Dunn said. “Chrissie Fiore led us in scoring again and Ashley Humphrey chipped in with some key three-pointers.”
