NEW CANAAN — The New Canaan boys lacrosse team gave Trent Nader most of Saturday afternoon off.
Not that that the Rams’ senior goaltender was complaining. On a day filled with sentiment and purpose, Nader was sharp during the few times he was tested during the Rams’ 16-1 win over New Fairfield in the Class M semifinals.
“The ball wasn’t in our end too long but when it was I thought we played really well,” said Nader, who split time in goal as coach Chip Buzzeo again was liberal with his substitutions. “Our defense really stepped up.”
