Darien vs. Greenwich football quarterfinal moved to Wednesday
Darien’s Class LL football quarterfinal football game against Greenwich, along with the full slate of state playoff games, has been moved to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, the CIAC announced on Monday.
No. 3 Darien (9-1) will be facing No. 6 Greenwich (9-1) at Darien High School. It is the second meeting between the two teams this season, and the Blue Wave won the first contest, 27-21, at Cardinal Stadium.
In its announcement, the CIAC cited the “continuing forecast of inclement weather and a need to allow host schools adequate time to prepare their facilities.
“Given the number of sites and games for the football postseason and the importance of maintaining equal and appropriate recovery for all teams, in consultation with the schools and tournament director we felt it best to reschedule the entire quarterfinal round of games.”
With the quarterfinals now scheduled for Wednesday, the semifinal round has been moved from Sunday, Dec. 8, to 6:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 9.
The football championships are still scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 14, with two games apiece at Trumbull High School, and Willow Brook Park in New Britain.
