Bassick (0-3) at Wilton (2-1), 6 pm: The Warriors will look to stay hot after rolling over Branford last week. Bassick another team looking for its first victory.

Bridgeport Central (0-3) at Danbury (1-2), 7 pm: The Hatters are hoping to move back to .500, but the Hilltoppers will be looking to spoil that and pick their first win of the season.

Warde (1-2) at New Canaan (3-0), 7 pm: The Mustangs snapped an 8-game skid last week, but will have a tough time starting a winning streak going into New Canaan to face the red-hot Rams.

Derby (3-0) at Crosby (0-3), 7 pm: Despite a 44-33 win over Wilby last week, Derby coach George French was miffed at all the missed tackles by his club.

Watertown (1-2) at Seymour (1-2), 7 pm: The Wildcats look to bounce back after a tough loss to Wolcott last week.

Wilby (2-1) at Ansonia (3-0), 7 pm: It’s the Wildcats’ turn to try and “contain” Ansonia star running back Arkeel Newsome.


SCC | By Gene Moretti

Amity (2-1) at Lyman Hall (0-3), 7 pm: Spartans scored 30 in loss to Shelton, could score more against Trojans.

Branford (0-3) at Fairfield Prep (2-1), 6 pm: Branford, along with East Haven, have given up the most points in the SCC this season. Enough said.

Hamden (2-1) at Law (0-3), 7 pm: Lawmen still looking for first win. They may have to wait another week.

Shelton (3-0) at Foran (2-1), 7 pm: Both teams can put up points. It’s just a matter of whether Foran can keep up with Shelton.

West Haven (2-1) at Guilford (1-2), 7 pm: West Haven has been on a roll since one-point loss to Greenwich in opener. That won’t change Friday.

New Fairfield (2-1) at Stratford (1-2), 7 pm: Both teams looking to bounce back from lopsided losses.

Bethel (1-2) at Pomperaug (1-2), 7 pm: Both teams 1-2, but have both hung tough against the SWC’s best.

Masuk (3-0) at Oxford (2-1), 7 pm: This will be Oxford’s first game against a top-tier SWC team.

Notre Dame-Fairfield (0-3) at Bunnell (1-2), 7 pm: Tough to get a read on Bunnell, which has beaten winless Immaculate, lost to contenders Masuk and Brookfield.

Newtown (3-0) at Barlow (3-0), 7 pm: Another pivotal, early-season battle between SWC contenders. This is a big one.

Greenwich (1-2) at Trinity Catholic (0-3), 2 pm: The Crusaders have been close the last two weeks, but will need to be in top form to stay close with what should be a fired up Cardinals team coming off two blowout losses.

Westhill (1-2) at Brien McMahon (3-0), 2 pm: Senators running back Tre Forney is done for the season, but McMahon hopes his replacements can get the job done against the Vikings.

Darien (3-0) at St. Joseph (3-0), 2:30 pm: Another week, another matchup of Top 10 teams. It will be St. Joseph’s last home game until Thanksgiving and the Cadets will surely want to defend their home turf.

Harding (2-1) at Ludlowe (2-1), 3 pm: For the first time in years, both teams enter this game with winning records and seemingly headed in the right direction. Should be a fun border battle in Fairfield.

Trumbull (2-1) at Norwalk (2-1), 4 pm: Both teams had hopes of being in the hunt for the FCIAC title this season, but a loss will seriously damage someone’s chances.


SWC | By Rich Gregory

Brookfield (2-1) at Immaculate (0-3), 3 pm: Coach Tom Taylor’s old team visits his current team, which is struggling.

New Milford (0-3) at Weston (2-1), 3 pm: Nice start for rebuilt Weston at 2-1; New Milford has allowed 167 points in losing to three solid teams.
