New England High Schools: Highlighting Darien’s Successful Start

Months after falling to Ridgefield in the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (Class L) championship, the Darien Blue Wave erased their one-goal setback with the Tigers by scoring a commanding 14-6 win last Friday.

Hudson Pokorny and Henri Pfeifle each recorded hat tricks in the win while helping the Blue Wave construct an eight-goal run in the second half to secure an impressive win over a Tigers team that has won two of three games this season.

The win certainly meant a lot to the Blue Wave, who certainly seem poised to make a run at the Class L crown later this spring. The mindset for the Blue Wave, according to Gametime CT, is to take it “one game at a time.”

As Pokorny mentioned to Gametime CT, this was certainly a “big one” for the Blue Wave, who recently beat Fairfield Ludlowe for their fourth win of the season.

Darien heads to Manhasset (New York) this weekend for their second out of state contest – they recently beat Yorktown, 11-7.

Also heading out of state this weekend is Daniel Hand, which will travel to Longmeadow on Friday for a 5 p.m. face-off. This should be a good test for the Tigers, who have won three games this season, including a 9-8 win on Wednesday over Shelton.

Longmeadow captured the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Central/West D2 crown last spring before falling to Concord-Carlisle in the state semifinals. C-C would advance to the championship round but lose to Reading, which won its first state title at Boston University.

One day after Daniel Hand visits Longmeadow, Simsbury will make the trek to Hingham on Saturday, April 13th. The Harbormen will enter the contest with a great deal of momentum, thanks to recent wins over North QuincySt. John’s Prep (Danvers) and Catholic Memorial.

We’ll have another notebook later this week, but make sure to stay connected with @NoontimeLax on Twitter for New England high school lacrosse news and scores! 

New England High Schools: Keep Your Eyes On Hingham & Norwell

If you’re a fan of the Hingham Harbormen then you couldn’t have asked for a better start to their season.

Hingham enters the new week with a 2-0 mark, thanks to wins over Catholic Memorial and St. John’s Prep (Danvers). Both wins secured them the second position in today’s BostonLax.net week two poll, which found Xaverian Brothers in the top spot, while Boston College High School secured the third position, thanks to a win over Cohasset.

Rounding out the site’s top five positions were Duxbury and Lincoln-Sudbury, checking-in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Hingham checked-in first in the Wicked Local South boys power ranking, while NorwellMarshfield, and Plymouth South secured the second, third, and fourth positions, respectively.

The Harbormen face a very interesting test on Saturday, April 13th when they host Simsbury (Conn.) at 1 p.m., and will certainly need another solid outing from Cooper Dainton, who netted four goals in his team’s win over the Eagles this past weekend.

In today’s Wicked Local South girls power rankings, Norwell secured the top spot, thanks to a 2-0 start, while Braintree, Cohasset, and Hingham checked-in second, third, and fourth, respectively.

Norwell, which returned 23 players from last year’s MIAA D2 state championship squad, has commenced its season with convincing wins over Foxboro and Westwood. The win over the Wolverines – an 8-7 victory – should provide the Clippers with some momentum heading into a week where they will face Hingham and Medfield. Both games won’t be easy.

Medfield enters the early week tilt with Norwell with a 1-0 record, thanks to a 19-4 win over Norwood last Friday. The win over the Mustangs was also the Warriors’ initial Tri-Valley League (TVL) victory, too.
