The State Championship

Greenwich advanced to their 14th state championship game with a 35-13 win over Bridgeport Central at Cardinal Stadium. Just minutes ago, the CIAC released the list of championship games. The Cardinals will look for their second straight title at 7:00 PM on Saturday at Southern Connecticut State University's Jess Dow Field in New Haven. The full list is:

#1 Greenwich (10-1) vs. #2 Shelton (10-1) 7:00 p.m. at Jess Dow Field, SCSU, New Haven
#1 Bunnell (12-0) vs. #3 Masuk (10-2) 7:00 p.m. at Ken Strong Stadium, West Haven
#1 Daniel Hand (11-0) vs. #2 New Canaan (9-2) 2:00 p.m. at McDougall Stadium, Trumbull
#4 Berlin (10-1) vs. #2 Ledyard (10-1) 2:00 p.m. at Arute Field, CCSU, New Britain
#1 Seymour (10-1) vs. #2 Tolland (9-2) 7:00 p.m. at McDougall Stadium, Trumbull
#1 Ansonia (12-0) vs. #3 New London (11-0) 2:00 p.m. at Ken Strong Stadium, West Haven

All of the details are here. I know there will be several media options for you, including SportingNewsCT, possibly WELI, and CPTV will be televising two of the games live, and the others on tape delay, but really, when you get right down to it, don't you want to listen to the Greenwich-Shelton affair on WGCH with me, Sean, Nick, and Jason? I might not be The One and Only (Tim Parry will get that reference) but I lead a great team of dedicated broadcasters who love to do what we do, while having fun.

Incidentally, I saw CPTV's schedule. Greenwich-Shelton is tape delayed to Sunday, with the Class S (Ansonia/New London) and Class L (Bunnell/Masuk) games are being carried live. Everybody else is tape delayed. If I'm understanding CPTV's thinking, it's because they probably have one satellite truck to use, and it's going to Ken Strong Stadium. Thus those are the live games, and it's not a bad slate - especially Ansonia/New London. I'd be happy to come by and call that one for somebody (just like I was supposed to call two games last year, but broken promises are a part of life...and broadcasting).
