The 86th meeting between New Canaan and Darien was played in the snow at Boyle Stadium on Saturday morning, and for the second time a state championship was on the line.
When the flurries had cleared, the Rams came away with their ninth state title, a 44-12 victory in Class L, avenging their lone loss, to the Blue Wave on Thanksgiving.
New Canaan finished the season at 14-1 while Darien was 12-2.
Nick Cascione threw for two touchdowns and ran for one to lead New Canaan, while Alex LaPolice scored on a reception, punt return and set up the first points of the day on the opening kickoff. Silas Wyper scored twice for Darien.
The top video has all the highlights if you didn’t brave the elements or just want to watch them again. The bottom has postgame interviews with New Canaan coach Lou Marinelli and Cascione.
Thanks to our friends at Scott Enterprises for putting another great highlight package together for The Ruden Report, and to BlueStreak Sports Training for sponsoring it.
