By the way, though I wasn’t at the game. I heard what was said and done in the aftermath of such an emotional game at Finn Stadium this week.
I’m watching the game on MSG this afternoon and while they continued the theme of pumping up Ryan Nolan’s confident dissertation of the matchup, I everybody acted and spoke like adults after the game.
Was it heated before and during it? Absolutely. But everybody realized that game could have been won by either side if they played tomorrow. Yes, Shelton got to talk a little bit afterward, justifiably.
But the Gaels were great. And so were the Fairfield Prep players and coaches. The kids all congratulated each other, and there were no harsh words said to anybody. In fact, you could see the respect both sides showed each other.
In the end, everybody remembered what this really meant. Whether you won or or lost, it a great night at the stadium in front of friends and family.
This is becoming a great rivalry in the SCC and we’re pleased to have them here. And nights like that will only make it better, no matter what anybody says before the game.
