GAMES TO WATCH Xavier at Hand (Surf Club), Wednesday, 6 p.m.: Hand’s getting healthier. Xavier has played all right to start.East Catholic at St. Paul, Thursday, 2 p.m.: Some high-powered offensive weapons in this Class S game.Somers at Hall, Thursday, 6 p.m.: An interesting upstate matchup. Hall has started well, 3-1 with a one-goal loss; Somers has started strong again, looking for a fourth trip in a row to the Class S final.New Fairfield at Weston, Thursday, 6 p.m.: Weston plays its second big SWC game in a row after visiting Newtown on Tuesday night.Staples at Trumbull, Thursday, 6 p.m.: Trumbull beat St. Joseph, which handily beat Greenwich, which handily beat... Trumbull. Usually we have to wait awhile to get head-bursting triangles like that. See how the Eagles do against Staples, a matchup of two teams off to good starts.Darien at Wilton, Thursday, 7 p.m.: Wilton has played good teams very close (five straight losses by a combined nine goals) without getting over the hump early. This is more of a hill than a hump, though.Daniel Hand at Joel Barlow, Saturday, noon: This has become a regular, quality nonconference matchup. They met a second time in 2015, too, in the Class M quarters, on the way to Hand’s first of four consecutive finals appearances.Glastonbury at Cheshire, Saturday, 1:30 p.m.: The young Rams have won the games they needed to win and lost their toughest game, to Fairfield Ludlowe. This one looks to be even tougher, the returning state semifinalist Tomahawks.St. Joseph at New Canaan, Saturday, 2:30 p.m.: Coming off their big win over Greenwich, the Cadets have Avon on Wednesday before this visit to another big FCIAC power.Guilford at Notre Dame-West Haven (Veterans Stadium), Monday, 6 p.m.: The unbeaten Indians meet Notre Dame, which is 4-2 with a game at Waterford in the meantime.— Michael Fornabaiomfornabaio@ctpost.com; http://twitter.com/fornabaioctp
