The Rams were the preseason favorite in the FCIAC. They’re starting to look like the best team in the state period behind Cole Harris and the defense and Nick Cascione and the offense.
The Cadets are an offensive juggernaut with Vazzano at the helm, but the defense came to play like an elite team this past week against Ridgefield. A Battle with Darien looms this week. It will be a dandy.
The Blue Wave cruised to an easy victory this week and now have their toughest test of the young season with St. Joe’s. Lombardo and Wyper will try to match the Cadets touchdown for touchdown.
The Wreckers are getting forgotten about with the high-flying offenses by the top three teams in the FCIAC, but don’t sleep on the defending champs who put up 63 points this week with Jack Massie lighting it up.
The Jesuits put the hail mary loss behind them and torched ND-West Haven behind Joe Ganim, Colton Smith, and Nick Crowle’s punishing ground attack.
How good are New Canaan and Darien when blowout losses don’t drop you below six? The Cardinals will get it together. They have the talent and the schedule lightens up. Expect Greenwich to be on a big win streak by Thanksgiving. Jose Melo looked good this week catching touchdowns instead of throwing them.
Jack Shaban continued to pace the Falcons’ option offense on the ground as Barlow pounded its way to a 35-14 victory over Stratford
McMahon picked up a solid 21-7 victory over Danbury last week and are the sleepers of the FCIAC so far. Losing Trey Forney to a broken arm for a few weeks could be devastating, but Tim Hinton has been a bull so far this year and will need to carry even more of the load.
Ridgefield took one on the chin from St. Joseph’s last week, but Will Bonaparte continued to impress as one of the FCIAC’s best runners. The Tigers won’t be facing the top quarterback in Connecticut every week.
Wilton beat another non-league opponent last weekend with a shutout victory over Branford. The Warrior defense has been superb the last two weeks including a 14-7 loss to Staples. Brett Phillips ran for a touchdown and returned a punt for a score in the victory over Branford.
