Week 1 of the High School Football season is over and it was an interesting week to say the least. Three teams in the New Haven Register Preseason Top 10 Poll lost.
#1 New Canaan lost to St. Joseph, #5 Ridgefield fell to Darien and #10 Shelton lost to Cheshire.
Obviously, there will be a shakeup in the Poll going into Week 2.
The Broadcasts got off to a great start. Friday night West Haven held off North Haven 33-27 in an exciting game and on Saturday, O'Brien Tech beat Abbott Tech/Immaculate 34-12 in my first ever all-Tech High School Football Broadcast. Let's hope all the football broadcasts are just as exciting.
Week 2, the featured game is Bethel at Jonathan Law in Milford Friday night. The game will be broadcast on ESPNradio1300, ESPNradio1300.com & iheartradio.
Don't forget to check out the Video from both games this past weekend. Friday's game highlights are on the ESPNradio1300 Facebook Page and the Saturday game highlights are on the 960WELI Facebook Page.
On the local College Football scene:
Saturday, New Haven lost to LIU Post 35-34 while SCSU defeated Stonehill 45-26. Both New Haven and SCSU are 1-1 overall.
Yale will begin their 2017 season on Saturday, September 16th when they play at Lehigh.
UCONN will also play on Saturday at Virginia.
New Haven is at St. Anselm on Saturday but SCSU plays Friday night when host Assumption at Jess Dow Field.
What's in store for Week 2? One never knows in High School Football.
