Weekend Game Plan: Offenses Will Be On Display When Ludlowe Hosts Greenwich

Game Of The Week

Greenwich (6-1) at Fairfield Ludlowe (5-2), Friday, 6 p.m. Two of the league’s most prolific offenses meet in Fairfield.

This is a measuring stick game for the Falcons, who were blown out in the season-opener against Darien, the last time they played an elite team.

Ludlowe played the Cardinals tough for a little over a quarter last year. Greenwich was focused despite being heavily favored last week at Trinity/Wright Tech. They would like to try for a first-round home game in the Class LL playoffs.

Friday

Trumbull (2-5) at New Canaan (5-2), 7 p.m. The Eagles have struggled finding consistency with a young team. The Rams are picking up steam in their state playoff run.

Ridgefield (6-1) at Brien McMahon (2-5)7 p.m. The Tigers take to the road for a tuneup before next week’s big game at Greenwich.

Fairfield Warde (2-5) at Staples (2-5), 7 p.m. Neither of these teams thought they would be sitting at two wins right now. Which one will be able to summon the consistency to add to the total?

Saturday

Bridgeport Central (0-7) at Darien (7-0), 1:30 p.m. A mismatch. You have to feel badly for the Hilltoppers after coming so close last week to ending their losing streak.

Westhill (1-6) at Trinity/Wright Tech (0-7), 1:30 p.m. The Crusaders have earned straight As for effort. They hope that will lead to their first win in the battle toward the city title.

Stamford (3-4) at Wilton (5-2), 2 p.m. The Warriors can’t look past Stamford as they try to set up a battle of two-loss Class L teams next week in New Canaan.

Norwalk (4-3) at Danbury (4-3), 4 p.m. This should be the most entertaining game of the weekend, likely a high-scoring affair between teams with a number of playmakers.
