TORRINGTON VS. KENNEDY

WHEN: Tonight, 7 p.m.

LOCATION: Robert H. Frost Sports Complex, Torrington

RECORDS: Torrington 0-7; Kennedy 1-6

LAST WEEK: Holy Cross 41, Torrington 21; Kennedy 33, Watertown 15

LAST SEASON: Torrington 67, Kennedy 36

TISCIA'S PICK:  Torrington 33, Kennedy 30 – This year’s game will not crack the 100-point barrier like last season, but we’ll still see plenty of points. If the Raiders play as well as they did last week at Holy Cross, they’ll get their first win.

 

LEWIS MILLS AT STAFFORD/EAST WINDSOR

WHEN: Tonight, 6:30 p.m.

LOCATION: Stafford High School

RECORDS: Lewis Mills 1-5, Stafford/East Windsor 1-6

LAST WEEK: Lewis Mills won by forfeit over Housatonic/Wamogo; Nonnewaug 34, Stafford/East Windsor 16

LAST SEASON: Did not meet

TISCIA'S PICK:  Stafford/East Windsor 28, Lewis Mills 25 – The Spartans picked up their first win last week over Housatonic/Wamogo, albeit over email from the CIAC notifying them of a forfeit. They’ll have a good chance of getting their first victory on the field tonight.

NONNEWAUG VS. GRANBY MEMORIAL

WHEN: Tonight, 7 p.m.

LOCATION: Granby Memorial High School

RECORDS: Nonnewaug 2-4; Granby Memorial 2-4

LAST WEEK: Nonnewaug 35, Stafford/East Windsor 16; Avon 38, Granby Memorial 19

LAST SEASON: Did not meet

TISCIA'S PICK:  Nonnewaug 27, Granby Memorial 20 – The Chiefs have made great progress this season and a win tonight could set them up for a possible .500 season.

GILBERT/NORTHWESTERN VS. AVON

WHEN: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

LOCATION: The Gilbert School

RECORDS: Gilbert/Northwestern 5-1; Avon 5-2

LAST WEEK: Gilbert/Northwestern 28, Canton 15; Avon 38, Granby Memorial 19

LAST SEASON: Avon 41, Gilbert/Northwestern 10

TISCIA'S PICK:  Gilbert/Northwestern 20, Avon 14 – ‘GN’ won a big game at Canton last week and needs to follow it up with an equally strong performance against an Avon team that blew out the Yellowjackets a year ago.

 

WOLCOTT TECH VS. PLATT TECH

WHEN: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

LOCATION: Foran High School

RECORDS: Wolcott Tech 1-5; Platt Tech 1-4

LAST WEEK: Putnam 48, Wolcott Tech 0; Bullard Havens Tech 26, Platt Tech 0

LAST SEASON: Platt Tech 22, Wolcott Tech 0

TISCIA'S PICK:  Wolcott Tech 23, Platt Tech 19 – The Wildcats, after playing well for three games, struggled against Putnam last week. This matchup is a good chance for them to bounce back.
