TRUMBULL — It is hard to recall any squad that has gone unbeaten in FCIAC play this late into the season and received less notoriety than the St. Joseph volleyball team.
We have five male and five female finalists for the Athletic Gaines-Ruden Report Male and Female Player of the Week.
The votes will run until noon on Thursday. The winners will receive our Player of the Week T-shirts.
We have eight teams on the menu for the Athletic Gaines-Ruden Report Team of the Week vote.
Your finalists are: the Darien boys soccer, Greenwich football, Fairfield Warde volleyball, Staples swimming, Norwalk football, Fairfield Ludlowe field hockey, Trumbull boys soccer and Danbury girls soccer teams.
GREENWICH — The pregame speech prior to the Greenwich football team’s most important regular season game in recent memory was not delivered by its coach, John Marinelli, who relinquished the stage to a group that played for the Cardinals 10 years ago.
TRUMBULL — Running the popular and high-scoring spread offense — no huddle, pass, pass, pass — may not be the best way to protect a big second-half lead. But Ridgefield coach Kevin Callahan was not ready to blame today’s shocking 38-35 loss to St. Joseph on that philosophy.
