TORRINGTON VS. WOODLAND

WHEN: Friday, 7 p.m.

LOCATION: Woodland High School

LAST WEEK: Torrington 21, Kennedy 0; Holy Cross 37, Woodland 18

LAST SEASON: Woodland 68, Torrington 20

TISCIA'S PICK: Woodland 38, Torrington 21 – The Red Raiders are coming off their two best games of the season – a loss at Holy Cross two weeks ago and their first win of the year last week against Kennedy. Getting a second straight win here is too much to ask, but at least they are heading in the right direction.

LAST SEASON: Old Saybrook/Westbrook 36, Nonnewaug 14

TISCIA'S PICK: Nonnewaug 21, Old Saybrook/Westbrook 20 – Picking the Chiefs in a slight upset here.

GILBERT/NORTHWESTERN VS. ENFIELD

WHEN: Saturday 1 p.m.

LOCATION: The Gilbert School

RECORDS: Gilbert/Northwestern 6-1; Enfield 4-3

LAST WEEK: Gilbert/Northwestern 6-1; Enfield 20, Cromwell 7

LAST SEASON: Gilbert/Northwestern 41, Enfield 26

TISCIA'S PICK: Gilbert/Northwestern 27, Enfield 16 – This will be a little more comfortable for GN, which held on for dear life last week against Avon.

 

LEWIS MILLS VS. SMSA

RECORDS: Lewis Mills 2-5; SMSA 3-4

LAST SEASON: Old Saybrook 36, Nonnewaug 14

TISCIA'S PICK: Lewis Mills 23, SMSA 18 – The Spartans caught a break two weeks ago picking up a win by forfeit and followed it up with a win on the field last week. This is a great opportunity for them to win their third straight after a 0-5 start.
