Darien loses to Ridgefield in state L final 9-8 snapping their 77 game win streak. D was trailing 9-3 with 3 and half mins left and went on a tear scoring 5 straight and had ball with 16 seconds but couldn't score. Congrats to Ridgefield has to be one of the biggest upsets in awhile

Forget the French Open, the NBA and NHL championships, not to mention the Belmont. This is the big one.

please tell me you really really care about the French Open. I thought you were more of a World Cup Guy (great issue last week from SI). Lebron screwed the Cavs by breaking his hand by punching a wall and breaking his hand after first game loss. Caps win was big. BUT I'd be willing to bet more guys on this board are more involved with Fairfield County sports than all of the above.

BTW you still owe me a sleeve of Pro V's

You are right. I have them gift wrapped in green. Let me know when you're in town and the presentation will take place in Bobby's as usual.

I, for one, am astounded. Holtsie, do you know what happened in terms of how Ridgefield pulled off the upset? This is a team that Darien handled fairly easily during the regular season, 11-6. What did Ridgefield do differently the second time around?

What odds would you have suggested five days ago that neither Darien boys or girls lacrosse would repeat as Connecticut Class L state champions? Before the semifinals, boys were probably an 80% to repeat and girls maybe the same. So less than 5% chance neither gets there.

I think most sports fans love it when a decided underdog recognizes its deficiency in athleticism and through a combination of clever game plan, pluck and determination defeats a far superior opponent.

C'mon, foehi, even a curmudgeon like you must recognize the appeal the appeal of a David facing a Goliath with a 76-game winning streak and then pulling off the miracle through inventiveness and playing out of their minds for 60 minutes.
