For the second-consecutive night, the SWC thrilled fans with a fantastic finish.
This time it was New Fairfield senior forward Joe Calamari getting in on the action with a sweet, buzzer-beating 3 from the left corner to lift the Rebels to a 56-53 overtime SWC victory over Weston.
It was a big victory for New Fairfield and, incidentally, its second victory over Weston in as many games.
The Rebels snapped a three-game losing streak with last week’s 47-44 victory over the Trojans in a non-league game.
This time, the game counted toward the SWC standings. New Fairfield improved to 1-0 (4-3 overall) and Weston fell to 4-3 and 0-1 in the SWC.
The footage below comes from P.J. Jamieson, the older brother of New Fairfield sophomore guard Sam Jamieson. He got the defense to collapse as he drove the lane and kicked the ball out to Calamari, who was wide open and took his time to make the winning basket.
