There are no games between teams with winning records this weekend. Ridgefield and Westhill are still mathematically alive in Class LL, and they each face an opponent that is .500 and a thorn for opponents.

Game Of The Week

Westhill (6-2) at Wilton (4-4), Friday, 7 p.m. The Vikings have been focused on an eight-win season and have not given up hope on a state playoff berth. They have been playing great defense, but now go up against a Wilton running attack that is difficult to simulate in practice. The Warriors have a number of defensive playmakers as well.


Danbury (1-7) at Greenwich (7-0), 6 p.m. The Cardinal starters may not get a lot of playing time in the second half so coach John Marinelli will want to see a sharp effort before a big non-league game next week with Xavier.

Staples (5-3) at Stamford (3-5), 6 p.m. Coming off a difficult stretch, the Wreckers go on the road to try and assure themselves of a winning season.

Fairfield Ludlowe (1-6) at New Canaan (6-2), 7 p.m. It is probably too much to expect the Falcons to win their second straight game. This is the Rams’ final tune-up before what could be a must-win Turkey Bowl.

St. Joseph (7-1) at Brien McMahon (1-7), 7 p.m. The Cadets take to the road in their quest to wrap up the top seed in Class S.

Fairfield Warde (4-4) at Ridgefield (5-3), 7 p.m. The Mustangs have been playing top teams tough all season. Here is another opportunity. The Tigers need two wins and a great deal of help to return to the state playoffs.

Capital Prep Harbor at Trumbull (2-6), 7 p.m. The Eagles, who have had a disappointing year, picked up this game late to fill a bye.


Darien (8-0) at Bridgeport Central (1-6), 10:30 a.m. Blue Wave coach Rob Trifone’s biggest concern this week is that the alarm clocks are working.

Trinity Catholic (2-6) at Norwalk (4-4), 11 a.m. The Bears can finish over .500 with two more wins. No matter the record, the Crusaders always play hard.
