Week 6: FCIAC Football Guide To The Games

There is really just one game that could potentially impact the league playoff race before things start to really heat up over the following weeks.


St. Joseph (5-0) at Bassick (1-4), 3:30 p.m. The Cadets finally get an opponent they should have little trouble with, though the Lions are coming off their first win over city rival Bridgeport Central in two decades.

Greenwich (3-2) at Trumbull (4-1), 7 p.m. Game of the week. The Cardinals have rebounded from a pair of decisive losses with a pair of wins. We find out just how steady the ship is when they travel to face Trumbull, unbeaten in league play and riding the strong arm of quarterback Nick Roberts.


Wilton (3-2) at Fairfield Warde (1-4), 7 p.m. A game the Warriors need to win if they are going to make a run at a 6- or 7-win season.

Stamford (0-5) at Brien McMahon (5-0), 7 p.m. With their speed on offense, you get the feeling the Black Knights are due for a breakout win. This is a tough spot though against the Senators’ pounding ground game.

Danbury (2-3) at Staples (4-1), 7 p.m. It would be surprising if the Wreckers were caught looking ahead to next week’s game with New Canaan.


Westhill (1-4) at Bridgeport Central (0-5), 7 p.m. A chance for one of two struggling teams to get a much-needed win.

Chicopee, Mass. (2-3) at New Canaan (5-0), 7 p.m. The Rams have been doing a lot of film study for this non-league game. Looks like one more big win before the anticipated back-to-back games with Staples and St. Joseph.


Trinity Catholic (0-5) at Darien (4-1), 1:30 p.m. A rough year for the Crusaders gets no easier against the Blue Wave, who are gearing up for a stretch run against a tough schedule.

Ridgefield (4-1) at Warren Harding (2-3), 2:30 p.m. The Tigers should maintain their playoff hopes as the rest of the league continues to play the game of Where’s Jack (Cochran)?

Fairfield Ludlowe (3-2) at Norwalk (2-3), 3 p.m. The Falcons have played solidly, while the Bears look to rebound for a pair of losses.
