SCC-FCIAC challenge still being worked out

An anonymous source told the Register that the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference football coaches unanimously voted down a proposal to play the Southern Connecticut Conference in Week 6 in 2013 and 2014.

The matchup between two of the premier football conferences in Connecticut was originally supposed to be in the opening week each of the next two seasons, but Amity had already scheduled a non-conference, home-and-home series with Seymour to open both seasons.

The source also said that Tuesday’s vote does not kill the two-year deal. If the games were moved back to the season opener, the coaches would approve the games. And even still, the FCIAC board of directors and athletic directors can override their vote and have the games played in the sixth week.

Wilton athletic director Christy Hayes, who is also on the league board of directors, said his FCIAC school is still for the proposal no matter what week it is.

“This does not mean it’s dead or we are not doing it,” Hayes said. “I’m kind of surprised (by the unanimous vote). Whether it is Week 1 or Week 6, I don’t think it really should be an issue.”

Amity athletic director Paul Mengold said he and Seymour AD Ed Rostowsky agreed to the two-year series three years ago. Seymour’s only open date in 2013 is in the season opener, so the game cannot be moved.
