STAMFORD — If you believe in karma, the Darien High School football team sent out a warning shot Saturday afternoon.
On a week they installed a package with defensive end George Reed in the backfield for short-yard situations, the sack-specialist scored a pair of touchdowns against Trinity Catholic.
And on a week Rob Trifone said more time was spent on the two-minute offense, the Blue Wave needed just 38 seconds to travel 76 yards, ending with quarterback Tim Graham’s 18-yard touchdown run with 11 seconds remaining in the first half.
That made the score 28-0 in what would become a 42-0 victory.
