Commence the hype. The game we predicted we were going to see is now upon us, undefeated St. Joseph at undefeated New Canaan, Friday Night Light. The Rams are No. 2 in the state pending Monday night’s newest state writers’ poll. The Cadets are No. 3
We have eight teams on the menu this week for The Ruden Report FCIAC Team of the Week vote.
Your finalists are: the Ridgefield boys cross country, Staples boys soccer, St. Joseph girls soccer, Danbury girls soccer, Fairfield Warde football, Darien girls swimming, Norwalk/McMahon girls swimming and Fairfield Ludlowe volleyball team.
If you put your money on Darien winning the FCIAC volleyball title over the last 20 years, you made a hefty profit. The Blue Wave has run the table every year, except for 2000. Last season, because no final was played because of Superstorm Sandy, Darien shared the championship with Fairfield Ludlowe.
