On Saturday, October 31st at 1PM Westhill will be taking on the cross town rival Trinity Crusaders in a varsity football showdown. This is the first and last meeting between the teams this year. Coming into the game, both teams have had opposite seasons. Trinity is 4-1 and has had amazing offense all year. In their last game, Trinity defeated Fairfield Ludlowe 37-20. Quarterback Nick Granata threw two touchdown passes to Izaiah Sanders. Westhill, on the other hand is 1-4. Defense has struggled mightily, especially when they lost 55-12 earlier this month to New Canaan.
“Westhill has to play lockdown defense, solid special teams, and win the turnover battle. City rivalry games are always tough games and Westhill can salvage its season with a win,” said Stamford Advocate writer Scott Ericson. This will be the last home game on Trinity’s Alumni Field before construction of a new sports complex. Trinity will play Stamford High on Friday, November 6th. The Crusaders season ends in Wilton on Thursday, November 26.
“Our offense needs to come out, ready to put up 30. That’s how we will get the job done” said junior Anthony Dastoli. The Vikings will play their first home game in about two months on November 7th. Their season concludes against the Black Knights on Thanksgiving morning. City officials recommend you get to the game early Saturday. They are expecting a very big crowd. It will definitely be a great game, with solid defense and good plays.
