The St. Joseph football team scored 28 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to overcome a 35-10 deficit and defeat Ridgefield on Saturday, 38-35. Quarterback David Summers threw the winning touchdown pass to Philip Pasmeg.
Gavin Muir threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to lead Greenwich to a 36-21 win over New Canaan on Saturday. Jael Negron had a pair of scoring catches to help the Cardinals improve to 4-0.
We are coming off the biggest football weekend of the regular season and left with just a handful where state playoff contenders will be facing off.
TRUMBULL — It is hard to recall any squad that has gone unbeaten in FCIAC play this late into the season and received less notoriety than the St. Joseph volleyball team.
We have five male and five female finalists for the Athletic Gaines-Ruden Report Male and Female Player of the Week.
The votes will run until noon on Thursday. The winners will receive our Player of the Week T-shirts.
We have eight teams on the menu for the Athletic Gaines-Ruden Report Team of the Week vote.
Your finalists are: the Darien boys soccer, Greenwich football, Fairfield Warde volleyball, Staples swimming, Norwalk football, Fairfield Ludlowe field hockey, Trumbull boys soccer and Danbury girls soccer teams.
GREENWICH — The pregame speech prior to the Greenwich football team’s most important regular season game in recent memory was not delivered by its coach, John Marinelli, who relinquished the stage to a group that played for the Cardinals 10 years ago.
TRUMBULL — Running the popular and high-scoring spread offense — no huddle, pass, pass, pass — may not be the best way to protect a big second-half lead. But Ridgefield coach Kevin Callahan was not ready to blame today’s shocking 38-35 loss to St. Joseph on that philosophy.
WESTPORT — With a roster replete with players who will end up with numerous individual postseason honors, including some who started the year with fuller resumes, no one on the Darien football team has received more glowing praise from coach Rob Trifone than Jack Joyce.
STAMFORD — Ali Essallamy was a forward growing up, but since joining the Stamford boys soccer team his primary responsibility has been preventing, not scoring, goals.
