Games to watch
No. 3 Ridgefield at Danbury, Thursday, 4:30 p.m.: The Tigers have a brutal schedule out of the gate, but if they can get by Stamford and Danbury this week and Staples in a FCIAC finals rematch next week, things will be much easier down the stretch.

Waterford at New London: Friday, 5:30 p.m.: Waterford plays Bacon Academy Tuesday and New London three days later. A win in ether will establish the Lancers among the elite in the ECC.
