Ludlowe and Norwalk both like to ground and pound and that is what we got Saturday at Testa Field.
The Falcons only had the ball twice in the first half as the Bears controlled the clock but that was ll they needed, scoring on their second possession.
Ludlowe’s other score came off a bad snap by Norwalk which was scooped up and run back for 6.
If either of these teams can play a clean game with no turnovers and few penalties, they could compete with a lot of teams in the league but when Norwalk plays like it did today, it is tough to pick up a W.
The Falcons have done a better job of playing clean than the Bears this year and that is the major difference between the two.
Norwalk played hard and kept fighting, scoring with 13 seconds left and recovering an onside kick but could not get the Hail Mary at the end of the game, losing 13-6.
- Impressed with Ludlowe quarterback Matthew White, who is a FCIAC throwback under center, running the option, taking hits and throwing when needed, mainly in the flat. Enjoyed watching him today.
- It was homecoming at Norwalk but you would only know that if you heard the pregame announcement as nothing was done to celebrate at the game.
The band did not perform at halftime, then left before the third quarter, the stands were 75% empty and very few students wee in attendance.
You would think people would turn out at 3 p.m. on a Saturday for a homecoming game to watch a team that plays hard and could use the support.
Big difference the night before across town at McMahon Friday night where the band played at halftime, the stands were packed with students and the homecoming court was announced at halftime.
