Ridgefield And Danbury Advance To Create FCIAC Final Between Last Two Champions

Playing with poise and a lead for all but 48 seconds, the fifth-seeded Tigers took down the top-seeded Eagles, 73-66, behind a stifling defensive effort. Ridgefield (16-6), which won the title two seasons ago, will meet last year’s champion, Danbury, in the final on Thursday night. The Hatters rode 16 unanswered first-quarter points for an emphatic 68-48 win over Wilton.
