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]

Week 6 recap

on
I went 3-1 yet again this week. If Fairfield Prep could’ve converted on a two-point conversion (or kicked the extra point and won in overtime) I would’ve gone perfect. Instead, 3-1 will have to do, yet again. Let’s rehash: McMahon 42, Ludlowe 14- The Falcons are finding ways to score points. They’re just not able […] [Read More]

Week 6 football picks

Here’s hoping we get an undefeated week for the first time this year. Ludlowe (0-5) at McMahon (2-3), tonight, 6 p.m.- The Senators fought hard in a tightly contested game with Staples on Saturday before falling to the Wreckers 21-13. However, McMahon has had a pretty bizarre year, being blown out by Stamford, and losing […] [Read More]

Week 5 football recap

on
Another 3-1 week boosts my record to 15-5. However, I was 22.7 seconds (or a fourth down stop) from being 4-0. The Connecticut High School football gods are finding new ways to laugh at me. Oh well. Let’s recap what happened this weekend. No. 1 Xavier 34, Fairfield Prep 0. Our Tom Cleary was at […] [Read More]

Week 5 football picks

Thus far I’ve gone 3-1 every week putting my four week record at 12-4. Not bad, but not great. Going for the perfect week this week. Here goes nothing. Prep (2-2) at No. 1 Xavier (4-0), tonight, 7 p.m., Palmer Field. Tom Shea gets a chance for his first signature win against the undefeated and […] [Read More]

Week 4 football recap

on
I came this close. THIS CLOSE to an undefeated week. It took Harding’s first FCIAC win in four years, but I guess my perfect week will have to wait. Let’s recap what happened. Prep 37, Law 22. I was surprised that this result was as anyone. I just spoke with our Tom Cleary who was […] [Read More]

Public football teams headed in different directions

on
Despite the fact that both Ludlowe and Warde both lost this past weekend, the Mustangs and Falcons appear to be teams headed in opposite directions. Warde fought valiantly against the No. 2 team in the state, New Canaan, 34-13. Craig Lowery was the lone bright spot, scoring-wise, for the Mustangs. But Warde’s defense was about […] [Read More]

Week 4 football picks

Four games again, including a Homecoming (literally and figuratively) at Fairfield Warde. New Canaan (3-0) at Warde (2-1), tonight, 7 p.m. Tetreau/Davis Field- Duncan Della Volpe loves to take on Lou Marinelli, because they coached together for years at NCHS. The Mustangs lost to the Rams 35-13 a year ago in a game that was […] [Read More]

Week 3 football recap

on
I went 3-1 again this week, it is time for me to get off the Notre Dame bandwagon. Let’s re-hash and play Tuesday Morning QB. Wilbur Cross 20, Prep 15. Maybe Prep is better than we all think. The Jesuits are certainly scrappier than we all originally thought. In three games, they’ve outscored opponents 66-50. […] [Read More]
