Class L Boys Lacrosse: No. 5 Darien will open playoffs at home on Wednesday, May 29
The Darien Blue Wave will look to bounce back from its disappointing loss in the FCIAC semifinals when it begins play in the CIAC Class L boys lacrosse tournament next week.
Darien earned the No. 5 seed in the tournament and has a bye in Saturday’s playdown round, which will include the No. 10 through 23 seeds.
The Blue Wave will then host a first round game on Wednesday, May 29, against the winner of the playdown game between No. 12 Newington and No. 21 Conard.
With a win in that game, Darien would move into the quarterfinals on June 1, and could face a possible trip to No. 4 Simsbury or a home game against either No. 13 West Haven or No. 20 Ludlowe.
Also on Darien’s side of the bracket are the Ridgefield Tigers, who are the No. 1 seed, as well as No. 8 Staples and No. 9 Warde, who will square off in the first round.
Wave rival New Canaan, the No. 6 seed, as well as No. 19 Wilton are on the other side of the bracket.
The Class L semifinals will be held on Wednesday, June 5, with the finals scheduled for Saturday, June 8 at Brien McMahon High School.
