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.
