ON THE AIR/WEB
Hand vs. Cheshire, Thursday, 7 p.m. at Falcon Field, Meriden: 960-WELI AM and 101.3FMHD3.
West Haven at Notre Dame-West Haven, Friday, 7 p.m.: 960-WELI AM and 101.3FMHD3.
GET OUT AND GO
Hand (3-0) vs. Cheshire (2-1), Thursday, 7 p.m. at Falcon Field, Meriden: How will Cheshire respond after suffering its first loss of the year to Xavier last week? Xavier rushed for 390 yards in the win, something that the Rams are likely concerned about. Hand, though, is primarily a passing team, but the Tigers are capable of running the ball effectively, too. Both teams use a no-huddle, spread offense, which could make for an exciting, and possibly high-scoring, affair.

No penalty for Masuk in 56-0 win over Stratford
However, the CIAC decided that Masuk coach John Murphy took the necessary action to control the game.
Here is the statement from the CIAC:
After a review of reports received from both schools involved and the game officials in regards to Masuk High School's 56-0 varsity football victory over Stratford High School on Friday, it has been determined that the proper sportsmanship protocols were followed, and that there was no violation of the CIAC Score Management policy by the winning school's head coach. Due to this fact the review committee will not take any action against Masuk High School in regards to Friday's game.
