New Canaan wins, Central wins, Foran wins, Ludlowe wins, Greenwich wins, Shelton wins… as we all lay exhausted, full of stuffing from Thanksgiving Day dinner here’s a quick recap on all everything that went down yesterday.
The CIAC, by the way, has spoken. The state playoff pairings have been confirmed. Brookfield will host Avon at Danbury’s Crotty Stadium. Masuk will host
Weaver Windsor at Trumbull. Update: Forgot to add this change: the Darien-Hillhouse game will be played at West Haven High School’s Ken Strong Stadium.
Here’s the playoff story: Bunnell’s playoff hopes dashed
Saturday Update: Here is the CIAC 2008 playoff page.
And could a title game between Darien and New Canaan go back to Boyle Stadium. Though reconstruction is supposed to begin soon, it might happen if the two teams reach the Class MM championship game. Read more here.
Incidentally, I always understood that teams could not play a state championship game at a field on which it had already played during the regular season. Either way, I doubt this will happen.
