By Peter Wallace TORRINGTON >> Torrington’s football team turned last week’s rough start against NVL-favorite Seymour into a 50-14 romp against Wilby Friday night at Torrington High School.

TORRINGTON >> As expected, Torrington girls basketball (9-3) romped, 61-29, over winless Wilby (0-13) Friday night at Torrington High School. But a ho-hum game becomes an opportunity to showcase a Red Raider coach whose teams are consistently this dominant in the Naugatuck Valley League, often regardless of innate talents. Mike Fritch, a 24-year veteran who […]
WATERBURY >> A week after both young football teams were crushed in their season openers, Torrington emerged from an iffy first quarter against Wilby Thursday night to administer a 48-7 Wildcat whipping at Waterbury’s Muncipal Stadium.

TORRINGTON >> Wilby’s boys basketball team whipped Torrington 80-43 Friday. Those who watched went away thinking the Wildcats’ two-point win over No. 10 Crosby a month ago was no fluke.

Everyone is a critic but one gentlemen who commented on our site suggested I get a new job, “pal.” Maybe this anonymous gentleman is right – maybe I should. Going 8-4, then 21-7 is not a very good percentage. So I guess I will have to try and do better for the semifinal round: SCC […]
