The Darien High School football team has been playing close games against top competition the past month, and Saturday afternoon was no different. The Blue Wave continued their hot play with a 13-7 win over Middletown in the Class L semifinals.
The victory propelled top-seeded Darien (12-1) to the championship game and a rematch with rival New Canaan next Saturday. The Blue Wave won the teams’ previous meeting, on Thanksgiving, 28-24.
After Middletown’s Dario Highsmith scored on a 72-yard run, Darien tied the game on Silas Wyper’s 12-yard pass to Jay Harrison and got the winning touchdown on Wyper’s 37-yard pass to John Reed.
Here are the scoring highlights from the game.
