Greenwich High, Newtown set to square off in boys, girls class L lacrosse openers

The seedings for the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference lacrosse tournaments came out earlier this morning and both Greenwich and Newtown high schools will become very familiar with each other when it comes to playoff lacrosse.

The Greenwich High School boys team will enter the CIAC class L tournament with a 12-4 regular season record and take the No. 6 seed. Big Red beat out Southington High School for the sixth spot but just missed out on the No. 5 spot, taken up by Xavier High School. Although Greenwich, Xavier and Southington both had 12-4 records, Xavier had 198 power points, while Greenwich had 172. Southington finished with 154 points.

Greenwich’s first round opponent will be Newtown High School, who comes into the class L tourney with a 10-6 regular season record and netted the 11th seed. The game will be played Wednesday at 4:30 at Cardinal Stadium.

The winner of the first round game will move on to battle the winner of No. 3 seeded Staples High School and No. 14 Conard. If the Wreckers win, the winner of Greenwich vs. Newtown will travel up to Westport. If Conard pulls off the upset, both Newtown or Greenwich would get the home game in the second round, which gets underway Saturday at 3.

The Greenwich High girls lacrosse team also advanced to the class L tournament as a top 10 seed and will also see Newtown High School in the opening round. The Lady Cardinals finished the regular season with a 13-2 record and that was good enough for the fourth seed in this year’s postseason.

Glastonbury (15-1) took the top seed in class L, with fellow FCIAC school Darien High School  (13-1) grabbing the second seed. Hall High School (14-2) finished with the third seed.

Greenwich’s opponent will be Newtown High School, which comes into the playoffs as the No. 13 seed and netted a 9-7 regular season record. The game will be played Tuesday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium, with game time getting underway at 5.

If the Cardinals beat Newtown, they will advance to the quarterfinal round and host the winner of the Cheshire High School versus South Windsor game, Thursday at 5 at Cardinal Stadium. If Newtown pulls off the upset, they will travel to either South Windsor or Cheshire high schools for the second round.
