Darien had been bidding for an undefeated FCIAC regular season, a remarkable feat, but was beaten by the Staples Wreckers, 8-2, on Friday. That loss made today’s showdown in New Canaan even more important, as both teams could be in line for the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament, which begins on May 26.

New Canaan owns records of 14-3 overall and 13-2 in the FCIAC, while Darien is 14-3 overall and 14-1 in the conference.

A New Canaan win would push the Rams ahead of Darien via the head-to-head tiebreaker, while a Darien win would keep the Wave in front, while knocking New Canaan back to third place. Norwalk, which is 13-2 in league play, is also in the mix for the top seed, but New Canaan owns the tiebreaker based on its 2-1 win over the Bears earlier this season. Norwalk will host Darien in the regular season finale on Friday.
