Bassick’s Lewis Breaks Down St. Joseph-New Canaan

Derrick Lewis has a unique distinction: the Bassick coach is the only one who has faced both New Canaan and St. Joseph this year.

The Lions lost to New Canaan in the second week of the season, 42-20. They dropped a 49-6 decision to St. Joseph two weeks ago.

Lewis is as qualified as anyone to break down Friday’s much anticipated showdown between the FCIAC’s top two teams. Any he is voluble on the subject.


Poll: New Canaan? St. Joseph? Who Is Going To Win?

Commentary: Blue Wave Ride Ridder To Win Over Ridgefield

DARIEN — Like most coaches, Rob Trifone prides himself on being able to read his players.

The score, two plays after New Canaan’s Nick Cascione had put his team ahead, 14-0, cut the Wreckers’ deficit in half. It was the first points the vaunted Rams defense had allowed all season.
