Tonight is the Class LL championship game.
NOPE. Scratch this. Because of consistent ice at West Haven and a Tuesday snowstorm in the forecast, the Class LL final has ONCE AGAIN been postponed.
This time to Thursday at 6:35 at West Haven.
So much for Monday night football (and I worked so hard on that video…)
Anybody know if Priyanka Chopra is available to cut an ‘In My City’ Thursday Night Football vid for us?’
FROM THE CIAC:
CHESHIRE, Conn. – Continued ice accumulation on the field and more weather issues in the forecast have forced the postponement of the CIAC Class LL football championship game to Thursday, December 19 at 6:30 p.m. at West Haven High School.
A review of the West Haven facility this morning indicated conditions are not suitable for spectators and players for the originally rescheduled time for 7 p.m. Monday evening.
With current weather forecasts predicting additional weather issues in the coming days, Thursday seemed the most likely date a site would be available to play. West Haven has brought in additional staff to work on the facility to try and insure the game can be played. If the game cannot be played on Thursday, Friday is the latest possible date the championship could be played. If conditions do not allow the game to be played by that date, co-champions will be declared.
It’s been a long season, excuse me while I have a little fun.
(ahem – gets into Frank Gifford voice…)
They’re two of Connecticut’s proudest programs, but their schools and fans haven’t tasted state championship glory in decades.
But now that they’ve finally returned the pinnacle, they’ve had to wait a little longer. A vicious Saturday snowstorm pushed their state final to Monday.
The son of coaching legend, young Mike Drury has the Blue Knights in their first state final since 2006. His powerful offense is led by Yale commit Stephen Barmore at quarterback and an all-star receiver Alex Jamele. Zach Maxwell leads a swarming defense that’s buried opponents all year.
Standing in their way is a star-studded class of future college athletes. In just four years as coach, alumnus Tom Shea has taken the Jesuits from 0-10 to their first final since 1988. They, too, have a future Yale stud in fullback/linebacker Nick Crowle and junior quarterback Colton Smith has rapidly gone from bench warmer to one of the state’s most dangerous threats.
Both teams have flexed their muscles in the state playoffs, winning big and with clutch performances.
But who will come up biggest and finally bring a long awaited state title trophy back home?
Two starving behemoths collide in the Class LL championship at Ken Strong Stadium in West Haven TONIGHT… On MON-day NIGHT football.”
Thank you. Now let’s do this before it turns into a soccer final.
