Chills! Spills! Thrills! Friday night Week 2 had it all, and oh so much more.

Fairfield Prep rallied from 16 points down to take a 3-point lead with a minute left vs. St. Joseph. Then Jordan Vazzano uncorked a prayer that Lars Pedersen caught at the pylon with no time left in a 36-33 stunner.
Hand whittled away a big Hillhouse lead and avoided 0-2 by kicking a late-field goal in a 28-26 victory.

New Fairfield blitzed Oxford with 26 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to stun Oxford.
Newtown hung on to beat Bethel 22-14 in an emotional ‘Green Out’ night at Blue and gold Stadium.
Jack Cochran has Harding 2-0 for the first time in… awhile.
