Huge second half propels Darien past Greenwich

on
Tuesday’s Darien-Greenwich girls lacrosse matchup seemed like it was going to be another nail-biter between the two rivals. Then the second half began.

An SWC tournament runner-up a year ago, when it recovered to dominate the Class S state tournament, the Barlow boys lacrosse team appears to be the class of the conference in 2013.

Darien-Ridgefield: Right from the draw

Greenwich makes statement in defeat

on
If you just went off the reactions of Greenwich head coach Scott Bulkley and Prep’s Chris Smalkais, you would have thought it was the Cardinals that came away with a hard-fought, 7-6 win, and not the visitors. Everything is relative I guess, and after the Greenwich fell to the Jesuits 14-8 and 15-5 in 2012, […] [Read More]
