The playoff contenders are dwindling by the day and most of our fair football teams are now playing for winning seasons, .500 records, pride, to get better, what have you.
There’s still plenty going on though, plenty of big game from which to choose Friday night. You can put on a blindfold and throw a dart at the three big SCC games and you won’t go wrong.
But if high-stakes SCC games aren’t your thing (huh?), you can always check out unbeaten McMahon take on 6-2 Ridgefield up at Tiger Hollow. There’s an FCIAC championship at stake for the Senators. Playoffs at stake for both.
Or check out the big Class L matchup of Farmington and Bristol Eastern. Or maybe you’re intrigued about Middletown at New London.
