Weekend Game Plan: Wilton Faces Big Test From St. Joseph





Week three of the schedule brings us a few interesting matchups, but there is a prohibitive favorite in each game.

Game Of The Week

St. Joseph (2-0) at Wilton (2-0), Friday, 7 p.m. The Cadets have dominated their first two opponents, and no team in the state may have a component that is the equal to their front seven on defense. This is the beginning of the Warriors’ most difficult stretch of the season. And it does not get much more difficult than this.

Friday

Brien McMahon (0-2) at Wilbur Cross (0-2), 3:30 p.m. Facing a team that has been outscored, 101-0, in two games, the Senators hit the road with a good opportunity for their first win.

Norwalk (2-0) at Greenwich (2-0), 7 p.m. A measuring-stick game for the Bears as they try to see where they stand compared to the top of the conference. And the Cardinals have proved so far despite the changes on and off the field, they are at the very top.

Danbury (1-1) at Bridgeport Central (0-2), 7 p.m. The Hatters are cast as prohibitive favorite for the second straight week.

Trinity/Wright Tech (0-2) at Trumbull (1-1), 7 p.m. After a humbling loss to Greenwich, a young Eagles team looks to get back over .500 while building for the future.

Cheshire (1-1) at Fairfield Warde (1-1), 7 p.m. The Mustangs might be one of the more underrated middle of the pack teams in the conference. They get a visit from Cheshire, a talented team coming off an upset loss.

Saturday

Fairfield Prep (1-1) at Fairfield Ludlowe (1-1), Noon. A much anticipated meeting for town bragging rights. The Jesuits are ornery coming off a loss, while the Falcons are still building with a young team.

New Canaan (1-1) at Stamford (1-1), 1 p.m. Would you want to face the Rams the week after coming off a loss they have had to read about almost daily?

Darien (2-0) at Westhill (0-2), 1 p.m. The Blue Wave get to ride the momentum of their big win over Southington.

Ridgefield (2-0) at Staples (1-1), at Norwalk, 6 p.m. We will learn how the Tigers handle success coming off their win over New Canaan. They put a lot into that game. What to make of the Wreckers? Their offense has struggled so far.
