Well, this 2014 version of the New Canaan Rams seems to be anything but normal, as it heads to perhaps a third straight FCIAC championship. New […] [Read More]

Too many penalties hurt Warde’s upset bid

on
Fairfield Warde boys lacrosse coach Tom Cunningham believes the extent of his team’s strides toward reaching the top group of FCIAC teams has rendered usage of the term “moral victory” no longer applicable.

Greenwich beats Bronxville, sets sights on Darien

on
Before turning its attention to rival Darien, Greenwich had to fend off a tough Bronxville (N.Y.) team on Thursday. In a defensive battle, the Cardinals notched their fifth straight win, beating the visiting Broncos 7-4.
