Fairfield boys basketball update

on
The winter season is upon us, and the public school boys and girls basketball teams are a combined 0-8. Yikes. However, there is reason for hope, at least on the boys side. Fairfield Ludlowe’s boys team competed with a very good Brien McMahon team (one without a penchant for free throw shooting). Brian Silvestro’s opening […] [Read More]

Without further ado, let’s wrap up the football season for Fairfield. Notre Dame 34, Immaculate 28. The Lancers took a big […] [Read More]

Ludlowe (1-8) at Warde […] [Read More]

Week 9 recap/Bill Gonillo-5

on
A 2-2 week, where three of the four schools from Fairfield got wins. I give credit to both ND and Ludlowe for getting their first wins of the season. Congratulations. I should’ve listened to the commenter who said that ND would beat New Milford. Well stated, sir. Without further ado: ND-West Haven 35, Fairfield Prep […] [Read More]

Week 9 football picks

on
Here we go folks, another week to chew on. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the passing of Robert “Bo” Williams, a Danbury football coach, which postponed the Warde vs. Danbury game from Friday until Saturday. I’m sorry for your loss, and may he rest in peace. Notre Dame-West Haven (5-3) at Fairfield Prep […] [Read More]

Week 8 football recap

on
I went 4-0 in week 7, so naturally I was due for a miserable week 8. One could ask what I was thinking picking three of the Fairfield teams to win, naturally I am wondering what I was thinking now. Without further ado, let’s re-hash week 8. Sheehan 27, Ludlowe 21. I was surprised to […] [Read More]

Four games to pick, so let’s get it started Shelton (4-3) at Prep (3-4), Alumni Field, Friday, 6 p.m., The Jesuits and Gaels square off in what should be a tremendously competitive game at blustery Alumni Field tonight. I think the Jesuits run game, coming off a huge game at Hamden, is confident. I think […] [Read More]

Week 7 football recap

My first undefeated week! Woo hoo! Unfortunately, that came at the expense of three of our teams. Ludlowe and Warde both battled, but found ways to shoot themselves in the foot. ND is terrible and so is Hamden. Let’s look back on the week that was, Week 7 in Fairfield. Prep 33, Hamden 6. Big […] [Read More]

Happy Halloween weekend all. Hope it is littered with fun, candy and merriment. But before Halloween, there will be High School football. Bring on the picks! Prep (2-4) at Hamden (0-6), Hamden High School, tonight, 7 p.m.- Tom Shea told me that he was frustrated by being 2-4 when his team could easily be 4-2 […] [Read More]

Can anyone figure out the FCIAC?

on
They key saying in football is “Any given week, anything can happen.” But typically in high school sports, parity doesn’t reign. The better team, more often than not, wins a lot of the time. I know that isn’t rocket science, but it is the facts. However, 2010 in the FCIAC has been strange. It all […] [Read More]
