Staples, Central clinch FCIAC Championship game berths

FCIAClogo 3a According to Connecticut P0st calculations, Staples and Central have clinched berths in the FCIAC championship game.

Staples clinched with a victory. With Stamford and Greenwich winning, and a guaranteed 10 more points from Westhill-Ludlowe, Central’s minimum league point total will be 1090, for an average of 121.11.

New Canaan’s minimum point toal will be 960, for an average of 120.00.

Since Central shares the final 20 available bonus points with New Canaan, there’s no way the Rams can outpoint the Hillhoppers.

This will be Central’s second FCIAC championship appearance in school history. The last was in 2004, a 42-27 loss to Greenwich. Staples last reached the FCIAC championship game in 2007. It’s last FCIAC championship victory was in 2003.

Here’s the final total.
