Boys' Lacrosse Tournament: Cheshire and Prep Heading in right direction

Looking good in the 'ol lacrosse neighborhood....

In the boys’ Division I tournament, entering the post season I predicted a Cheshire-Fairfield Prep CIAC Class L final and so far both teams are making me look good.
No. 2 Cheshire (19-2) faces No. 3 Glastonbury (14-4) in one semifinal on Tuesday at West Haven High at 7:15 p.m. Glastonbury will likely have some revenge as motivation. Cheshire defeated Glastonbury 8-4 in a regular-season game on April 10 and the Rams also defeated the Tomahawks 11-10 in the 2002 Division I championship.
The problem for opponents is Cheshire has a huge amount of depth with 8-9 players who can score. The Rams have arguably one of the best all-around players in the state with scoring phenom Todd Heritage and goalie Nate Gaudio is extremely tough to beat.

In the other semifinal, the No. 4 Jesuits (16-5) face No. 1 Staples (18-1) on Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. at McMahon High.

Four-time Class L defending champion Fairfield Prep is still the team to beat with its own brand of depth front to back led by Griff McGoldrick, Brendan Rotanz, Mike Carey, Darric White and Alex Matarazzo. The Jesuits have the toughest overall schedule in the state and the elite out-of-state games have been serving them well in the postseason. Staples has its share of balanced scoring and a solid goalie with Austin Waiter.
