Kevin Lindley scored seven goals and Ryan Cornell had a seven-save shutout in Darien’s 14-0 FCIAC quarterfinals win over Fairfield Ludlowe at home on Saturday.

But the number of note is 75.

Lindley sets a new Wave record for goals in a season with 75 and counting, overtaking Charlie Howe’s 2000 record of 73.

While a superlative in scoring was happening at one end of the field, perfection was scored in the Wave net, with the help of more than a few.

“The game was highlight by the superb defense,” said Wave coach Jeff Brameier, “led by All Americans Ryan Cornell and Arden Cohen — with five caused turnovers — with help from Quinn Fay, Jake Bieler, Nick Percarpio and Andrew Darby.”

Darien will play Wilton in the semifinals on Tuesday at Brien McMahon.
