The Greenwich Cardinals can claim the #1 ranking in the Final Football Poll with a victory over Darien in the Class LL Final on Saturday. Greenwich is currently ranked #1, so a victory should keep them at #1. It won't be easy against the Blue Wave of Darien, ranked #5.
Should Greenwich falter, the Chargers of Ansonia might have the next opportunity. Ansonia is ranked #2 and a victory over St. Joseph in the Class S Final and a Greenwich loss, could get the #1 ranking.
But what if #1 Greenwich and #2 Ansonia both lose - what now - next up is #4 St. Joseph or #5 Darien. It could become an interesting dilemma.
But enough about speculation - it will be decided soon enough on the field.
