Fairfield Prep at Notre Dame-West Haven, Dec. 23, 7 p.m.: Former SCC Quinnipiac Division rivals square off in what should be a sellout. Get there early.

Hamden at East Catholic, Dec. 27, 7 p.m.: I wonder how many teams would have scheduled this non-conference road game against the reigning Class L champs. You can count them on one hand.
