Did Southington cheat?

Manchester coach Marco Pizzoferrato thinks Southington did.

It happened on Oct. 22 when Southington defeated Manchester 28-14.

Why does Pizzoferrato think so?

Well, Manchester wide receiver Marquis Jimenez lost his armband that had his team's plays on it, coded by color and number, late in the second quarter.

This is what Pizzoferrato had to say, as quoted in the Hartford Courant.

"Southington somehow got it and used it," Pizzoferrato said Thursday. "When our quarterback [Seth DeValve] called the play, D.J. looked down at his clipboard at the arm band, said the play into his headset and then their defensive coaches yelled what was coming to their defense. You can see it on the game films."

Manchester could file a protest with the CIAC. It says Manchester is exploring that option. Southington denies the accusation.
