Thunderstorms postpone many season-opening games (updated)

Thunderstorms postponed many season-opening football games scheduled to play Thursday night. A number of them involved area teams playing in the SCC-FCIAC Challenge.

And some of those area teams have to finish completed games on Friday. One of them is Hillhouse, which trails 40-26 to Darien with just over 9 minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Academics will return to Darien Friday to resume the game at 4 p.m.

Shelton led Trumbull 49-0 at halftime when thunderstorms postponed the second half of that non-league contest to 3 p.m. Friday. Among teams in the Register Top 10 poll, No. 5 West Haven leads host Greenwich 13-7 in the third quarter. That game will resume Sunday at 1 p.m. in Greenwich.

No. 6 Middletown led East Lyme 7-0 at home in the second quarter. It will be resumed Sunday at 1:30 p.m. No. 7 Southington never got started at Glastonbury. That game begins Friday at 3 p.m.

Hamden led Danbury 6-0 with 1:23 left in the first quarter Thursday night. That game will resume at 3:30 Friday. Wilbur Cross trails McMahon 13-0 at halftime. The Governors will return to Norwalk at 3 p.m. Friday.

Other rescheduled games to Friday include: Fairfield Prep at Stamford, 3:30 p.m.; North Haven at Bridgeport Central, 4:30 p.m., Trinity Catholic at Sheehan, 4:30 p.m.; Branford at Woodland, 4:30 p.m.; and Bassick at East Haven, 7 p.m.

 Fairfield Ludlowe led Lyman Hall 24-7 in the third quarter and have not announced a makeup date yet. North Branford led Haddam-Killingworth 39-0 in the third quarter. That makeup is also not known.

Three area games were completed Thursday: Valley Regional/Old Lyme beat Hyde 34-0, Oxford beat Weston 23-6 and Wilton edged Guilford 21-20.

Hamden pieced together a 14-play, 56-yard scoring play that covered some 7 minutes of the first quarter to take a 6-0 lead over Danbury. Billy Varney hit Maliek Williamson on a 12-yard screen pass for the game’s lone score so far.

But on Danbury’s ensuing possession, with 1:23 left in the opening quarter, lightning caused play to be stopped. About 10 minutes later, all the lights on the field and in the school went out.
