No hype is needed when Darien and New Canaan meet in any sport. Especially when a title is on the line.
Such was the case Saturday afternoon, when the two schools met for the FCIAC boys hockey title. The Blue Wave was the top seed and 1-0-1 against No. 3 New Canaan during the regular season.
Behind most valuable player Mac Wright’s 24 saves and two goals and two assists from Jack O’Rourke, the Rams rallied from an early 1-0 deficit to a 5-2 win, their third league title in five years.
