The No. 10 seed Cadets (13-6) will face 13th-seeded Weston High (12-7) at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Jack Casagrande Field at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk. It's the sixth time in seven years St. Joseph has reached the Class S boys lacrosse final, with four of those championship games contested against the aforementioned Trojans of Weston.
