WELCOME TO STATE CHAMPIONSHIP CENTRAL
Finally, it’s time to play the state championship games.
ANSONIA and WOODLAND kick off the four-game state championship schedule tonight in a Class S championship bubbling over with intrigue.
This is the final game for Connecticut’s overwhelming all-time leading rusher Arkeel Newsome before he prepares for a life at UConn. This is Ansonia’s chance at a third-straight state title and 19th overall, not to mention become the first team in Connecticut football history to go 15-0. This is a rematch of the NVL Championship game, won by Ansonia 48-7. This is Woodland’s chance to pull off what would be a stunning upset.
What’s going to happen?
