Games to watch

Cheshire at Guilford, Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.: Cheshire needs this one to qualify for the Class L tournament.

Shelton at Notre Dame-West Haven (Veterans Stadium), Wednesday, 6 p.m.: One of these two teams gets to finish the regular season at 10-6. They’ve both had nice seasons.

Waterford at Somers, Thursday, 5:30 p.m.: The Class-S-leading Spartans host Waterford, a team that could wind up leading Class M. The Lancers had a home game Tuesday night against East Lyme, the team that dealt them their only loss.

Granby at St. Paul, Thursday, 6 p.m.: Granby looked like it had a little roll going, topping Somers in overtime, winning a couple of more, and then it lost to McMahon 9-8 on Friday. After a game Tuesday at Suffield, this won’t be an easy one. The Falcons carried a five-game winning streak into Tuesday’s game at Northwest Catholic.

Simsbury at Glastonbury, Thursday, 6 p.m.: They’re the leading teams in the CCC, and Glastonbury is ranked No. 7, and they’ve both had some postseason success. They’re also among the top four seeds in Class L as Tuesday’s play begins.

Granby at East Catholic, Saturday, 2 p.m.: All the above Granby stuff, reiterated; as for the Eagles, they’d lost three out of four against some bigger schools. They got back to Class S on Tuesday, but it was defending Class S champion St. Joseph scheduled to come to town... until the rains came, so they met in Glastonbury instead.
