After a hard-fought regular season, the Greenwich High School boys lacrosse team is ready to make some noise in the upcoming Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference tournament.

The Cardinals posted a 10-1 FCIAC record and earned the No. 2 seed in the tournament, which gets underway tomorrow afternoon. Greenwich’s lone conference loss this year was to top-seeded Darien High School, which has an FCIAC record of 11-0.

Greenwich will start play in the FCIAC quarterfinal round when they host No. 7 seed Fairfield Warde High School under the lights at Cardinal Stadium. Game time is slated for 6 p.m.

Big Red has yet to faceoff against the Mustangs, who enter the postseason with a 6-5 conference mark, this season.

Overall, the Blue Wave are the league’s top team and will host neighbor Brien McMahon High School (7-4)  tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. Ridgefield High School (10-1) is the No. 3 seed in the tournament and is hosting No. 6 seed St. Joseph High School (6-5) at Tiger Hollow tomorrow.

The other tournament game being played tomorrow is when No. 4 seed New Canaan High School (9-2) hosts fifth-seeded Staples High School (9-2) at 4 p.m.

Other than its game against 10-4 loss to Darien High School, the Cardinals have come up victorious against the best of the FCIAC this season. Against New Canaan, the Cards won 11-8, while they also upended Staples 5-3. Big Red beat McMahon 11-7 and slammed St. Joe’s 17-2.

Ridgefield was Greenwich’s toughest game, as they pulled out the 8-7 victory in double overtime.

The winners in the quarterfinal round will advance to the FCIAC semis, which will take place at Brien McMahon High School’s Jack Casagrande Field on Tuesday. The first game is slated for 5 p.m., with the second game played at 7.

The FCIAC championship game will also be at Jack Casagrande Field and will take place at 7 p.m.
