Hey fans! Hope you’ve had an excellent week. If you’ve been out of town (or out of the loop) here is what you’ve missed for week 2 of the High School season.
Warde Field Hockey is 3-0
This wouldn’t be monumental news except for the fact that Warde field hockey only won three games all last year. The Mustangs have given up just one goal in their three games and that came with 38 seconds left in Warde’s game with Ludlowe. Warde could move to 4-0 with a win over Amity and could be 5-1 when it goes to Stamford on Oct. 6.
Ludlowe boys soccer escapes with tie at Norwalk
Todd Kalif covered this game and I believe that this bodes well for the Falcons. If Norwalk is that good and Ludlowe managed to squeak out a tie with them, that could mean good things down the line. The Falcons are still unbeaten, which any coach will take, and the confidence (and more importantly points) are growing.

The Falcons struggled to get going at Ridgefield on Monday and lost the first two games. Ludlowe rebounded to force a game 5 but lost 16-14 in the final game. The Falcons lost the opening game on Wednesday, 26-24, to Norwalk. The Bears are 1-3 on the year, and if Ludlowe has visions of FCIAC playoffs and state competition, they should be beating Norwalk more handily than that. Head coach Meghan Eaton is frustrated with the poor starts her team has started to. I think they’ll turn it around.

Odds and Ends
Two wins will clinch the division for the Yankees this weekend. I think they do it… I’m not buying the end of the Patriots dynasty. As long as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are involved this team is still in the mix. They’re going to go off on Sunday as long as Wes Welker plays… I’m probably the only person that is excited, but NHL starts on Thursday! My beloved Devils start Saturday against the Flyers…
