Games to watch
Cheshire at Guilford (DiLungo), Wednesday, 7:15 p.m.: Guilford should firm up a spot in the SCC/SWC Division II playoffs with at least a tie (which would also clinch a spot for Watertown/Pomperaug).
Fairfield Prep at Ridgefield (Winter Garden), Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.: Maybe the game of the second half, a rematch of the preseason No. 1 (the Jesuits’ growing pains seem to have worked themselves out, and we’ll see how far they’ve come) and No. 2 (the Tigers immediately took over No. 1 and haven’t lost and haven’t looked back).
Notre Dame-West Haven at Fairfield Prep (Wonderland), Saturday, 1 p.m.: Perhaps guarding against any Jesuits letdown after that one: Their archrival comes to Bridgeport. The Green Knights have swung around .500 like a sine wave, looking for consistency by the end of the year.
Amity at Cheshire (Wesleyan), Saturday, 6 p.m.: This game is why Guilford can clinch with a point on Wednesday: Somebody has to lose at least one point here. They’re jostling for position in a couple of Division II tournaments.
Sheehan at LHK (Northford), Saturday, 8 p.m.: Three weeks after the co-op’s 3-0 win in front of a packed house at Wesleyan, they’ll meet again. The Trojans have an edge for second place in the CIAC Division III standings as the week begins.
Westhill/Stamford at Ridgefield (Winter Garden), Monday, 2 p.m.: The Tigers could be going for the first unbeaten CIAC regular season since New Canaan in 2010-11, or they could at least be going for their second unbeaten FCIAC regular season in three years.
Darien at Greenwich (Hamill), Monday, 4:30 p.m.: Until last week’s win over LaSalle Academy (R.I.), the Cardinals hadn’t seemed to have their mojo since their Dec. 29 win over Darien. Their regular season ends here with the rematch.
