DARIEN — We can dispense with all the varied national poll rankings — at least, according to Darien’s Jack Kniffin — for the next five weeks.
In the most anticipated game of the boys lacrosse regular season, Darien got three goals apiece from Jack Kniffin and Kevin Lindley to defeat New Canaan, 10-7, in a battle of unbeaten and nationally ranked teams.

It seems to me that as we reach the midway point of the FCIAC baseball season, second-half prognostications are a fruitless task, in large part because of what we thought in the preseason has turned out to be so inaccurate. Case in point: Staples received votes as the No. 1 team in the state in the first writers’ poll. After Monday’s loss to Westhill, the Wreckers are 4-7, incredibly one of just five teams that started the day below .500. That is almost difficult to fathom.
