Wesleyan University's men's lacrosse team has advanced to the NCAA Division III championship game on Memorial Day weekend and several former high school standouts from Fairfield and Westchester counties are a big reason why.

The Cardinals upset top-ranked and previously unbeaten RIT 19-18 on Sunday afternoon in Rochester and will play either two-time defending national champion Salisbury or Gettysburg in the title game in Foxborough, Mass., on Sunday, May 27.

Former New Canaan High School star Harry Stanton, a senior attackman, had six goals for the Cardinals. Senior midfielder Cole Turpin, another New Canaan HS product, had three goals and one assist for Wesleyan (18-3).

Three Wesleyan players from Westchester  -- senior midfielder Eric Meyreles of Yorktown, junior longstick midfielder Chad Malinowski and defenseman sophomore Colin Malarchuk of Briarcliff Manor -- had strong games on defense. Malinowski is a graduate of The Hackley School and Malarchuk of Fordham Prep.

Former Hen Hud standout Ryan Tandy, a sophomore attackman, had four goals for RPI.

RIT, which ends the season 21-1, defeated Wesleyan in last year's semifinals 22-9 before losing to Salisbury 15-7 in the title game.
