Thank you, Connecticut High School Football Scheduling Alliance.
Newtown, out of the SWC and ranked seventh in the GameTimeCT poll, traveled to No. 10 Fairfield Prep of the SCC on Friday and came away with an emotional 21-14 victory.
This was the first of three games against SCC foes for the Nighthawks. They welcome West Haven next week and visit No. 6 Shelton on Oct. 11.
New Britain, from the CCC, traveled to play Staples of the FCIAC on Saturday. Two teams with storied winning traditions.
Staples withstood a blocked punt by New Britain late in the third quarter to hold on for a 14-8 victory.
Please take a moment to take a look back at the weekend in high school football through the lenses of our talented photographers.
