Video: Darien’s Nick Lombardo discusses his game-winning catch

|

Darien’s Nick Lombardo shook up the FCIAC football world in one dramatic moment Saturday afternoon. His 35-yard touchdown catch with seven seconds left lifted the Blue Wave to a 26-20 win over Trinity Catholic.

Those happy about the play: Darien, which took a big step toward salvaging what had been a disappointing season; Greenwich and Staples, which with wins next week will play for the FCIAC championship on Thanksgiving morning; and the FCIAC, which will now get to stage a title game, instead of having co-champions, which would have been the case if the Crusaders won and then defeated St. Joseph on Thursday.

Here is Lombardo discussing his catch with the media after the game.
