After Darien’s win over the Cardinals, the Blue Wave replaced Greenwich as the top ranked team in Connecticut by the GameTimeCT/New Haven Register poll. Darien was No. 3 and St. Joseph was No. 6 last week. The Cadets stayed at No. 6 this week.
St. Joseph was raising money for ALS research by selling wristbands, which were worn by many of the fans in attendance.
