  1. CT Lax says:

    Darien really needs a win today after the tough losses vs. Set and Nisky.

  2. I-95 Lax says:

    I’m going to go with Darien winning 9-7.

  3. WestLax says:

    If Arlington wins today against Somers I put them at the top of Class “A”. Somers has played some tough teams out of conference so they should be battle tested. Should be a great game. Somers 10 Arlington 9.

    • slacrosse says:

      Town (large lead)–strong sched as usual
      Jay (credit for wilton win)–strong sched as usual
      Bville (despite Town blow-out,making assumption can play a lot better?)–Somers/Mamo upcoming key games
      Mamo (like their key players inc. goalie)-Fox Lane/Bville games key
      Somers–very tough schedule coming up
      Arlington-Brewster/Town games
      Rye (need wins or at least very close games vs upcoming top ranked teams to move up–Jay, Somers, IP, New Canaan)
      Byram Hills
      Fox Lane

      Class A
      Class B

      • slacrosse says:

        Can someone tell me the scheduling rationale in Rye’s particular League requiring teams to play each other twice?–dont think that’s the case in other Section 1 Leagues??

        • slacrosse says:

          A note to above. I tend to be more conservative/harder on my own Rye team. They also have a very good goalie and some top offensive and defensive players that IMO can play with the best in Section 1. They’ve played really well against LP and Greeley and not so well/uneven vs Fox and Pville (credit to those teams as well). Probably would have notched Rye up had those been stronger all-around wins.

  4. says:

    Arlington leads Somers 3-0 after one. Brendan Sunday has one goal and two assists. JD Colarusso is sharp in goal.

  5. JR says:

    Rye 10 -2 over HG after 3

  6. Sailors Fan says:

    Hen Hud 12, Kennedy 5 (final)

  7. Tusker Times says:

    Big win for Somers and a much needed one. Keep it up!

  17. Old Rugger says:

    OK So after yesterday’s games I feel more confident about below CT Rankings
    1. Ridgefield
    2. New Canaan
    3. Darien
    4. Greenwich
    5. Fairfield Prep
    6. Wilton

    Prep always starts slow and gets much better during season.
