New Canaan cruises past Greenwich

on
Talk about an impressive performance. After routing Daniel Hand and Bassick its first two games of the season, New Canaan dominated another foe on Saturday, downing Greenwich, 66-20 at Cardinal Stadium. With a versatile offense loaded with receiving and running threats and a stingy defense, it doesn’t look like anyone will stop the Rams for […] [Read More]

St. Joseph too much to handle for Ridgefield

on
Ridgefield didn’t have an answer for St. Joseph’s high-powered offense on Saturday. That was apparent from the opening drive, when quarterback Jordan Vazzano burst into the end zone from 21 yards out to cap a six-play , 80-yard drive. St. Joseph moved the ball into Ridgefield territory on each of its six first-half drives, scoring […] [Read More]

Staples rolls Westhill

on
I thought Westhill may be able to stay somewhat close, like within three touchdowns, to Staples after reading about the Wreckers struggles vs Wilton last week. I was wrong. Staples scored early and often, beating the Vikings 63-14, and it wasn’t that close. Staples did everything right, Westhill did almost everything wrong. Against a mediocre […] [Read More]

The Senators would play most of the game without leading rusher and […] [Read More]

Ludlowe puts 2 good halves together, survives Central’s big plays

on
Fairfield Ludlowe’s defense did an admirable job in limiting the damage inflicted by Bridgeport Central’s speedy skill players Friday night in the Falcons’ 46-20 victory in Fairfield. Sophomore running back Marcal Loyd did not score for Central, but he outfoxed Ludlowe defenders several times with his speed and finesse. Yet Loyd was only able to […] [Read More]

Warde puts a win in the books over Trinity

on
It has been a while since Warde last won a football game, almost a year, Oct. 5, 2012 over Bassick. In that stretch they had already lost to Trinity34-13 last season, so, it was a nice night for the Mustangs as they knocked off the Crusaders 13-7 at home, ending an 8-game slide. Warde Head […] [Read More]
