Naugatuck looked superb again in a big win over Torrington. Naugy's offense is the real deal, according to everyone I talked to after the game. The Hounds have to be the fastest team in the league on both sides of the ball. It was a game full of big plays on both sides. I'll be the first to give the Raiders credit, though. That's a darn good ball club. An injury to Brendon Lytton kept him out for about a quarter and a half, which didn't help their offense any. It's a good squad on both sides of the ball that just fell victim to a few too many of the Hounds' big plays. This is still a team that should win no less than 7 games this season but will need some help to get back in the Copper Division race. (More on that game here.)
All signs point to Ansonia having a great game to follow up a good one against Woodland. Montrell Dobbs went insane according to his stat line: 381 yards and 5 TD on the ground. Not too bad. We'll get some more detailed reports from this one soon, I'm sure. A big one coming up next week for the Chargers against Holy Cross.
Holy Cross let St. Paul stick around for about a half and then pulled away. Again, hopefully some of our bloggers can help fill us in on what happened in the new holy war. I was expecting the Falcons to compete a little more than it sounds like they did. Again, should be real interesting next week for the Crusaders and Chargers.
How about Sacred Heart being 2-0? It sounded like another instance of letting a team hang around, but the Hearts finally put away Derby in the second half. Hopefully we get a report from oldschool on this one? I'd have to imagine Rohan Ifill had another excellent game. You've gotta wonder how far Sacred Heart's passing game can take it.
Watertown had some trouble with Seymour, which sounds like it played a lot better than it did against Naugatuck. Our Seymour correspondents will give us the skinny on this one and let us know what to expect from the Indians for the rest of the season.
Woodland didn't blow Kennedy out of the water, although from what I hear, it was never a very competitive game. I was expecting the Hawks' offense to score a lot more than 21 points. Sounds like the defense got well back on track after a horrendous performance against Ansonia. Should be an interesting one against Wolcott next week, although that offense will need to play better than it did tonight.
Wolcott did what we expected Wolcott to do--blow out Wilby. All signs point to the Eagles taking care of business and heading into their first real test of the season against Woodland on the turf.
Fill in everything I missed, guys. We've got a couple new polls up in the sidebar, too.
