Games to watch
Berlin at Killingly, 6:30 p.m.: A solid CCC-ECC scheduling alliance matchup between a couple of 2-0 teams that have been state-playoff regulars of late.
Rockville at Granby/Canton (Canton), 6:30 p.m.: An early battle to stay at the top of the Pequot League. The Rams have outscored opponents 75-3 in two games. The new co-op needed overtime in Week 1 but had an easier time last week.
Platt at Notre Dame-West Haven (Veterans), 7 p.m.: Platt is coming off a loss to Wethersfield in which not a lot went right. Notre Dame is coming off, well, Hand and St. Joseph, the top two teams in the state. One of these teams will get a needed win.
Norwich Free Academy at Shelton, 7 p.m.: NFA quarterback Austin Richards threw for nearly 500 yards on Saturday. Next, he’ll face the No. 5 Gaels, with defensive tackles Mike Lockavitch and Philip Sissick, who have combined for 14 and a half sacks in two games.
St. Joseph at Wilton, 7 p.m.: The No. 2 Cadets meet another unbeaten FCIAC team, a Wilton team with some size.
West Haven at Newtown, 7 p.m.: After losing their quarterback in a tough Week 1 loss at Shelton, then getting him back late in a big Week 2 loss to Conard, West Haven could use a win. Going to No. 6 Newtown will not make that easy, with the Nighthawks coming off an emotional win over Fairfield Prep.
Hillhouse at Bloomfield, 7 p.m.: Speaking of teams that could use a win but are going to visit a top-10 team that won’t make it easy, Hillhouse gets to try to get its first victory against the defending Class S champions, a team that has all kinds of offensive weapons.
Hand at Wethersfield, 7 p.m.: Wethersfield has some talented seniors, beat a well-regarded Platt team on Friday, is off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2015. Up next: Oh, the No. 1 Tigers.
Watertown at Seymour, 7 p.m.: The NVL’s 2-0 teams include Ansonia, Naugatuck and Woodland, not huge surprises. The other two meet in Seymour on Friday night. Both of them have defeated St. Paul by a touchdown and have another handy win apiece.
Branford at New Fairfield, 7 p.m.: This might’ve looked a little nicer on paper a couple of weeks ago, a possible Class M playoff matchup. The Hornets lost their opener, and the Rebels are 0-2. It’s not exactly must-win, but it’ll surely help the winner.
Barlow at Tolland, 7 p.m.: Another intriguing Class M matchup, pitting Barlow, 2-0 under new coach T.J. Cavaliere, against Tolland, which was more than competitive in a loss at Berlin and got on the board last week with a win over Avon.
Fairfield Prep at Fairfield Ludlowe, noon: The Jesuits could walk around the corner and down to Taft Field if they really wanted, as if this were an old-time sandlot pickup game. Since the teams play in different leagues and Fairfield spent almost two decades with one consolidated high school instead of two, it’s thanks to the scheduling alliance that the teams play for the first time since 1951.
New Canaan at Stamford, 1 p.m.: Two 1-1 teams, just as we all predicted two weeks ago, meet at Boyle Stadium, the Rams trying to rebound from a last-second loss to Ridgefield, the host Black Knights from a loss to Warde after their opening win over Staples.
Bullard-Havens at Platt Tech (Foran), 5 p.m.: The Panthers had last week off after a shutout win over MCW United opened their season. Bullard-Havens has rolled to two CTC victories to start the year. Combined score for the two schools in three games: 105-6. It’ll be tougher for at least one of them Saturday.
Ridgefield at Staples (Norwalk), 6 p.m.: The newly minted No. 8 team in the state, Ridgefield gets its first chance to back up its big win over New Canaan against Staples, which got its first win a week earlier over New Britain.
