BLOOMFIELD — He was everywhere on the field at Phil Rubin Stadium on Wednesday night in Blomfield’s 56-0 win over Stafford/East Windsor/Somers in the CIAC Class S football quarterfinals. Anthony Simpson scored four touchdowns, and his two interceptions, Nos. 9 and 10 on the year, turned the game squarely toward the defending-champion Warhawks. What has […]
The rumbles came early on Thanksgiving, maybe mistaken at first for the wind blowing down trees in the distance on that otherwise-gorgeous fall morning, but unmistakable soon enough. Those scores they were announcing over the PA systems? They were seismic. THANKSGIVING STORY LINKS | PLAYOFF SCOREBOARD | STAFF PICKS New Canaan’s 20-0 win over Darien in […]

What was unofficial by the numbers has become official by committee on Friday, and the CIAC football playoff pairings are set.
The committee made no changes to the pairings that became apparent by the end o…
A quiet week meant a quiet poll. You’ve got to dip to 14th place to find a change in the GameTimeCT Top 10 football poll this week, a little Shelton surge after beating Fairfield Prep 49-19. There’s another at 19th, where Sheehan’s win over Hamden moved the Titans up two whole spots. No, those aren’t […]
That game everyone was pointing to in the preseason? It lived up to the hype, and it affected a few votes in the GameTimeCT football poll. Hand’s 21-14 win over Shelton on Friday at the Surf Club kept the Tigers in the No. 1 spot they’ve held all year. Three voters, though, swung their first-place […]
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…
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 […]
Welcome back to Uni-Browse. Stafford/East Windsor/Somers won last week with 41% of the 561 votes cast. This week, we are back on the road with teams sporting white as the visiting team.

First it doubled the number of coaches on its sidelines, and then O’Brien Tech doubled its number of football victories Saturday.
New coach Tim Nixon started the year alone for the Condors. Assistant coach …
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. […]
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 […]
PLAINVILLE – Bloomfield quarterback Daron Bryden had himself a night on Friday. The junior threw six touchdowns and broke the school career record for touchdown passes in the Warhawks’ 47-0 win over Plainville. The record was 65 held by Jason Manson — who went on to play at Iowa and is now the head […]
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. […]
BLOOMFIELD — Everyone knew the offensive weapons Bloomfield had returning, almost too many, the kind that helped the No. 7 Warhawks to a 48-0 win Friday night over Hillhouse at Phil Rubin Stadium.
But this …
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 […]
A.J. BARBER Sr., Greenwich: The Class LL champs were hit hard by graduation, but Barber’s back after catching 10 touchdown passes last year and throwing one in the state final.

Darien’s Will Rolapp and Greenwich’s Mozi Bici are less than a year removed from successful football seasons at their high schools, so who could blame them if this weekend’s Grip It and Rip It 7-on-7 football tournament in…
For the 13th year, New Canaan High School will host a Grip It and Rip It 7-on-7 football tournament when 32 teams meet on Friday, July 12, and Saturday, July 13.
