Darien 42, Trinity Catholic 0: Blue Wave Starting To Find Their Rhythm

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.


McMahon 49, Stamford 21: Senators Have Earned Right To Be The Talk Of The Town

STAMFORD — A.J. Albano has a problem on his hand. For the past week, and for a good part of the last two years, he has insisted he doesn’t care about the lack of respect afforded his Brien McMahon football team, even when his demenaor belied his words.

Of course Albano cared. He cared not in a Jerry Jones, it-is-about-me kind of a way. He cared because Albano cares about his players.

Now, following Friday night’s impressive 49-21 win over Stamford, Albano is going to have to contend with his team being the talk of the town, at least for the next week.


Commentary: McMahon And Stamford Have Earned Their Moment In Spotlight

There is a big football game Friday night at Boyle Stadium, the site of many of the biggest games in FCIAC history.

There’s just one major difference from the recent past. New Canaan won’t be there. Or Darien. Or St. Joseph. Staples? Greenwich? Nope, nope.

Before what it is expecting to be the biggest home crowd in years, Stamford will be taking on Brien McMahon, with considerable playoff implications on the line.


The Blitz: FCIAC Football Weekly Guide To The Games

The biggest game of the week doesn’t feature New Canaan, Darien, St. Joseph, Staples or Greenwich, and wasn’t on anyone’s radar until two weeks ago.

Bassick (0-5) at St. Joseph (4-1), 3 p.m. Another mismatch for the Lions, as the Cadets should be able to give their starters a lot of rest.

McMahon (4-1) at Stamford (4-1), 6 p.m. The weekend’s feature attraction. Both teams lost their non-league opener and have gone unbeaten since in conference play. The Senators thrive with their ground game and defense, the Black Knights with a high-potent offense. Stamford quarterback Jalen Brown, with a slight fracture on the index finger of his throwing hand, will likely be a game-time decision. Boyle Stadium will be hopping.
