On demand: Rivals New Canaan and Darien clash in boys lacrosse

It was a battle of undefeated rivals in Darien where the Blue Wave hosted the New Canaan Rams in boys lacrosse on the HAN Network on Saturday.

The game, which featured the top two ranked teams in the state, is available on demand below.

The HAN Network also broadcast a live pregame show from Darien High School’s stadium with player interviews. You can rewatch it here:

Original story: The two rivals not only feature perfect records, they’ve done their damage against some top-flight competition and national rankings. The USA Today Sports Super 25 Expert Rankings put the Rams at No. 3 and Darien at No. 13. While the latest Nike-Lacrosse Magazine national rankings have Darien at No. 6 and New Canaan at No. 21. The more local GameTimeCT-New Haven Register poll has Darien ranked No. 1 in the state and New Canaan at No. 2.

What’s a better way to decide who’s the better than actually playing the game?

Adding to the fun is the longtime rivalry between the two border towns in everything from football to education to scoreboard size to lacrosse.

The Rams (9-0) are coming off recent victories over two FCIAC contenders in Greenwich 8-6, and Staples 7-4 — both of which were carried live on HAN: Watch Greenwich game here and Staples game here.

New Canaan started the season with a trip to Maryland, where it defeated the Loyola-Blakefield Dons 9-8 in overtime. The Rams also have wins over Fairfield Prep 8-7 (click here to watch), Wilton 11-2, and the Brunswick Bruins 13-8.

Darien (8-0), the defending FCIAC and CIAC Class L champion, also opened the year with a huge regional win on the road, rolling over Yorktown, N.Y., 12-3. The Wave has also beaten Niskayuna, N.Y., 20-16, Manhasset, N.Y., 11-8, and Wilton 17-3. You can watch the Manhasset game, covered by HAN, here.

The longtime rivals have named the day “Unite for the Fight,” as part of the Darien lacrosse team’s drive to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. A member of the Blue Wave roster has lived with cystic fibrosis his entire life.

You can read more about the game in Dave Stewart’s preview here.
