Trumbull at Central (The Movie!)

on
It was deja vu all over again for Central and Trumbull in this prime time FCIAC clash at Kennedy Stadium last Friday. You’ll see a pretty hard-fought first half, a quick Central touchdown and then two defensive stops inside their own 5-yard line. You’ll see Trumbull take an 8-6 lead at the break on Phil […] [Read More]

Here are our rankings for the Top 8 teams in South-West Connecticut for Week 5. TRENDING UP West Haven – And this is waaaay up from one of the ‘Missed’ to a No. 4 spot in the rankings. We needed the Westies to beat Notre Dame, and they did with pretty dominant performance on the […] [Read More]

Coming to Darien in Week 6: A National Football Nightmare

on
As was going through ranking this week’s Elite 8, and attempt to begin trying to figure out playoff scenarios (hint: it’s far too early), I started looking at Darien’s schedule. It’s not very tough. At 4-0, I mused, the Blue Wave will not be losing anytime soon. At least, in-state. Remember, Darien is supposed to […] [Read More]

Newtown at Oxford (The Movie!)

With Masuk grinding (or, more to the point purĂ©eing) its opponents into mush, the 2010 SWC season is fast becoming a race for second place. Heading into Week 4 only two other teams besides Masuk were undefeated. Bunnell emerged 4-0 after surviving a strong upset bid by New Fairfield Friday night. That left Oxford, the […] [Read More]

Week 4 Wrap: Congrats Presidents!

It’s tough picking games to attend every week. For somebody in my position, a sports reporter trying his best to gauge every team in his coverage area who can’t clone himself, you have to weigh a few factors: Importance: What are the team’s records? How big is this game for both teams? Is anything at […] [Read More]

Week 4: Deja Vu nowhere (except the FCIAC)

on
In a few months, when we look back at everything that went down on a Friday night in Week 4, we’ll remember it as the moment the 2009 season  became 2010. It was the night when our preconceptions about this year’s teams, culled mainly by taking what we knew about them in 2009 and applying […] [Read More]

Your Week 4 Primer – Battle on the North End, Mighty Markus, Live Updates

on
Trumbull 21, Central 0 – Looking back, it was probably the most perplexing result of 2009. Central limped out of McDougall Stadium a beaten team, pushed up and down the turf by what looked like a legit Trumbull crew. But then Christon Gill and Co. went on to pull a rare double, beating Greenwich and […] [Read More]
