Graham Maybell and the Darien Blue Wave hope to avenge for a 9-5 loss to Manhasset last season when the teams play tonight at 7 p.m. at Manhasset.
Here we go.
It’s the first day of perhaps the most eventful week — from start to finish — of the regular season.
We’ve been talking about it for a while now, most recently with our “You make the call” thread.
And we talked about it some more in this week’s H.S. Notebook at InsideLacrosse.com.
By now, you surely know that we’re in for quite a week of marquee matchups.
So fasten your seatbelts, gang.
In fact, what promises to be a watershed week is highlighted by 7 p.m. games both today, at the start of the week, and Saturday, at the end of it, at Manhasset.
Tonight, the Indians host Darien in a showdown of rivals who happen to be perennial state champs. (Darien has won six straight Class M Connecticut titles; Manhasset has won back-to-back New York Class C crowns.)
Then, on Saturday, Manhasset is the host site for the120th edition of the granddaddy of them all, the Woodstick Classic, between 2010 Class B state finalist Garden City and Manhasset.
Since today is the first day schools are back from break, it’s a relatively quiet day in terms of the volume of games on today’s slate.
