SEYMOUR — The scoreboard at DeBarber Field was broken all Thursday night. The clock read all zeroes. And meanwhile, Seymour and Ansonia played the kind of football game in which it felt as if one team was just going to run…
WELCOME BACK to another thrilling episode of The Meat Grinder, your weekly dose of high school football talk in Connecticut as we head into the last full, non-Thanksgiving week of the regular season. Ya boys Pete Paguaga and Sean Patrick Bowley take a look back at a unexpectedly wild Week 9, especially in the NVL and […]

After another stable week in the GameTimeCT football poll, we’ve got another week where some big matchups could produce some changes in the Top 10. No. 1 Hand meets preseason No. 6 Shelton at the Surf Club on Friday night. No. 9 Ridgefield gets another crack at a top FCIAC team, visiting No. 4 Greenwich […]
From the start, coach John Acquavita’s goal for Wilbur Cross was to get better every week. He knew there would be tough times, with an inexperienced line and other challenges.
The Governors weren’t positive…
ANSONIA — One wondered if the fence was going to stop Jadin Blackwell after No. 8 Ansonia’s 26-20 win over Woodland in an NVL football classic Friday night. He had eluded a few other containment efforts on the biggest play…
ANSONIA — Most football players get four years on their high school sideline. They get four years of coaching. They have four years to get better.
The Cafaro twins of Ansonia may come about as close to skir…
This week’s GameTimeCT Top 10 football teams are the same 10 football teams that were in last week’s top 10. There’s one little difference. Southington’s 35-7 win over previously unbeaten Simsbury has moved the Blue Knights up a spot, a season-high seventh, in this week’s poll. That comes at the expense of undefeated Ansonia, which […]
The big FCIAC games didn’t disappoint on Saturday, at least in the “how will they reshape the poll” sense (and on the field as well, in different ways). Darien’s 27-21 win Saturday at Greenwich flipped the Blue Wave over the Cardinals for third place in this week’s GameTimeCT Top 10. Coming down to the last […]
ANSONIA — Derby got the ball to start Friday night’s NVL football game at Jarvis Stadium after No. 8 Ansonia deferred the choice. The kickoff went to the Derby 21. The returner got a few yards upfield before the Chargers’ …
Nothing crazy happened. Nothing big changed. Now we’ll see what happens in a week. The GameTimeCT Top 10 remained intact, with five of the 10 taking the week off. The five who played had it relatively easy in the end, from No. 1 Hand’s 41-6 win at Norwalk to No. 7 Ridgefield’s 21-0 win to […]
We’re working our way through the bye weeks for the teams in the GameTimeCT top 10. Four had this past weekend off. Five will sit out the fun in the week to come. The biggest top-10 game of the week didn’t disappoint, though, as Newtown’s 34-24, come-from-behind victory at Shelton kept the Nighthawks at No. […]
WATERTOWN — Watertown was game early, but couldn’t match nor stop Ansonia’s blistering attack Friday night’s matchup of NVL unbeatens. Ansonia, which hasn’t lost to a league opponent since 2010, scored on every possession in the first half en route to a 56-26 victory at John J. Mills Field. Shykeem Harmon ran 10 times for […]
TORRINGTON — The Torrington boys soccer team roared back from a three-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over Ansonia Friday evening at the Robert H. Frost Sports Complex.
The Red Raiders (5-4), led by three goals from s…
Last week’s top-10 matchup was one of two games that changed a few things in this week’s GameTimeCT Top 10 football poll. The other game that changed a few things, well, it nearly deprived us of a top-10 matchup this weekend. Shelton’s loss to Cheshire dropped the Gaels from fifth to, barely, 10th, just a […]
A week after Ridgefield’s win over New Canaan shook up last week’s GameTimeCT top 10 and moved the Tigers to No. 8, nothing changed in the top 10 of this week’s poll. Everybody won; everybody stayed where they were, including No. 11 Southington. Right under them, though? That part of the poll got a bit jumbled. […]
Three games had a seismic effect on the GameTimeCT football poll. There were the two matchups of top 10 teams, for sure. But there was also the first big FCIAC game of the season, which shook up the heart of the top 10 for the first time this year. Adam Biernat’s field goal at the […]
The first weekend of the 2019 high school football season did not disappoint.
Stamford honored two classmates who died earlier this month in a car accident with a pregame ceremony, then went on to stun perennial power Sta…
ANSONIA — Nine months and 10 days. That time frame is how long Ansonia has had to chomp on the bit since suffering a Class S semifinal loss to Bloomfield a season ago.
