After what it called ‘exhaustive’ work by Chris Everone and the staff at West Haven High School, the CIAC gave its approval and assurance that the Class LL championship game will go on as planned Thursday night, 6:35 p.m.
Here is the press release from Joel Cookson, the media relations director of CIAC:
CHESHIRE, Conn. – Following a survey of the playing surface and facility at West Haven High School by members of the CIAC football committee, the Class LL football final between Southington and Fairfield Prep will be played Thursday December 19 at 6:35 at West Haven as scheduled.
After exhaustive work by the West Haven facilities staff over the last several days, the field will be in condition suitable for a championship game on Thursday evening.
“The folks at West Haven have done a tremendous job under difficult conditions to get the field and facility ready for competition,” stated CIAC Associate Executive Director Paul Hoey. “We are excited that the weather seems to have finally cooperated, and that Fairfield Prep and Southington will be able to play and determine a Class LL champion tomorrow evening.”
Tickets purchased online for the game as it was originally scheduled will be honored, and presale tickets can still be purchased at http://ciacsports.ticketleap.com.
