Wave beginning to rise in New Milford

After three consecutive lopsided losses to start the season, the New Milford High football team has quietly won two of its last three games, including Friday night’s 55-11 trouncing of Watertown in the SWC-NVL Challenge.

In that game, A.J. MacDonald ran for three touchdowns and Jacob Plancon ran for one score. Nick Kimball had an interception, threw a 63-yard touchdown pass to Scott Eherts and caught three touchdown passes.

The Green Wave (2-4) will host Bunnell (2-4) on Friday night. Bunnell’s two wins have come against two teams that still haven’t won a game this year, Immaculate and Notre Dame of Fairfield. Don’t be surprised if the Wave adds a few more wins to its record before all is said and done this fall. And the annual Thanksgiving showdown with rival New Fairfield should be a heck of a game.
