Watch the New Canaan Rams and John Jay Indians square off in an early-season girls lacrosse game. You can watch the game live or on-demand below:
The game is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5, at New Canaan’s Dunning Field. John Jay’s Katonah-Lewisboro School District and New Canaan are connected by Route 123.
New Canaan, which is led by head coach Kristin Woods, comes in following a season-opening 16-1 rout of the Westhill Vikings on Saturday. The Rams were 20-4 last season and won their fourth state championship in six seasons when they topped Daniel Hand 13-7 in the Class M final.
John Jay has slipped out of the gate against a pair of tough teams, losing to Yorktown 15-5, and Scarsdale 17-5 in the first two games. Section 1 Class B semifinalists last season, the Indians had an 11-6-1 record, but graduated the majority of its offense and is in a bit of a rebuilding mode.
