Hudson Pokorny led Darien (Conn.) with three goals and two assists in a 13-3 Class L championship win over Wilton (Conn.).
The win places the Blue Wave back on top of the state’s largest division and earns them the program’s 14th state championship victory. That total ties them with New Canaan (Conn.) for the second-most championships in state history. Wilton has the most with 22.
The win also avenges Darien’s 4-3 loss to Wilton in the FCIAC semifinals on May 21. That loss was the only in-state loss to a CIAC program Darien took this season (they lost to Brunswick School (Conn.), which is a prep school on May 15).
Darien finished 17-5 this season.

Goalie Liam Haller made 19 saves to help lead the Blue Devils to the victory.
Victor and head coach Jim Andre won the Class B title in 2014, the Class A title in 2016 and the Class B championship again in 2017. They reached the state championship in 2018 but fell to Garden City (N.Y.).

Three in a Row
Pelham (N.H.) was the only team to beat Hopkinton (N.H.) this season - ending the Hawk’s 43-game winning streak in the process.
History did-and-did-not repeat itself last week as Hopkinton avenged that loss to win its third-straight Division III championship with a 15-5 win over Pelham.
Junior Colby Quiet led the offense with eight goals in the victory.
The win is the program’s fourth-overall title and head coach Deacon Blue’s third.
Derryfield (N.H.) defeated Winnacunnet (N.H.) 9-1 to win its fourth straight Division II championship. The Cougars have six championships overall, which is fourth-most in state history.

The previous record occurred in 2013 when Bedford (N.H.) defeated Goffstown (N.H.) 16-2 in the Division II final.
Head coach Chris Hettler earned his sixth title with the win.
