High-powered high school/college boys/men's' lacrosse doubleheader on Saturday

Area lacrosse fans will be treated to a special doubleheader on Saturday at Fairfield University's Lessing Field.
The No. 14 Stags play host to No. 9 Loyola at 1 p.m. followed by one of the top high school matchups in the Northeast this weekend as defending CIAC Class L champion Fairfield Prep plays host to St. Anthony's of Melville, N.Y. at 4 p.m.
The icing on the cake for the Jesuits is that MSG cable network will be taping the Prep-St. Anthony game and broadcasting it at 9 a.m. on Sunday. The broadcast is one of 14 MSG telecasts featuring high school boys lacrosse in the New York Metropolitan area.
"If you love lacrosse you have to come down to watch these games," Prep coach Chris Smalkais said. "It doesn't get much better than this. You're looking at two fast-paced, exciting matchups on the college and high school level.
"We love playing elite teams like St. Anthony's. Win or lose, playing a game like that can only make you better."
St. Anthony's, ranked No. 7 in the nation in the LaxGuys' National Poll , is led by Princeton-bound midfielder Tom Schreiber.
The Jesuits are led by five players already committed to colleges - attackman Brendan Rotanz (Dartmouth), middie John McGoldrick (Middlebury), long stick middie Darric White (Middlebury), long stick middie Alex Matarazzo (Hartford) and middie Michael Carey (Gettysburg).
