GILBERT/NORTHWESTERN AT NORTH BRANFORD

WHEN: Tonight, 6:30 p.m.

LOCATION: North Branford High School

LAST WEEK: GN 48, Granby Memorial 21; NB 14, Ellington 6 

LAST SEASON: Did not meet 

TISCIA'S PICK: GN 17, NB 16 - This has the making of an early season classic between two strong 2-0 teams. It will be hard for the Yellowjackets to keep up their offensive pace from the first two weeks (82 points combined), but they will sneak by on the road.

HOUSATONIC/WAMOGO AT CANTON

WHEN: Saturday, 1 p.m.

LOCATION: Canton High School

RECORDS: HW 0-2, Canton 1-0

LAST WEEK: Morgan 48, HW 8; Canton 16, Avon 13

TISCIA'S PICK: Canton 42, HW 8


NONNEWAUG AT AVON 

WHEN: Saturday, 1 p.m.

LOCATION: Avon High School

RECORDS: Nonnewaug 1-0, Avon 1-1

LAST WEEK: Nonnewaug 26, Haddam-Killingworth 6; Avon 35, Lewis Mills 0

TISCIA'S PICK: Avon 30, Nonnewaug 13 - The Chiefs, coming off a big season-opening win over HK, will have their hands full with Avon.

TORRINGTON AT ST. PAUL

WHEN: Saturday, 1:30 p.m.


LOCATION: St. Paul High School

RECORDS: Torrington 0-2, St. Paul 1-1

LAST WEEK: Wilby 34, Torrington 19; St. Paul 32, Watertown 29

 LAST SEASON: Torrington 59, St Paul 33 

TISCIA'S PICK: St. Paul 47, Torrington 24 - Like last season, the Red Raiders will have trouble stopping St. Paul's potent offense.

T-Gaffney note: In last years game, the two coaches, Dan Dunaj of Torrington and Jude Kelly of St Paul, had heated words at the end of the game with Kelly thinking the Raiders where running up the score.
