Location: Waterbury's Municipal Stadium

When: Friday at 7 p.m.

Records: Torrington 3-1; Kennedy 2-2

Last season's matchup: Torrington 24, Kennedy 22 at Torrington

Last week's results: Torrington 34, Holy Cross 21; Kennedy 36, Sacred Heart 20

Tiscia's pick: Torrington 29, Kennedy 26. Both teams have high-power offenses and much like last season, the Red Raiders will prevail in a close, high-scoring affair.


Location: New Haven's Bowen Field

When: Saturday at 2 p.m.

Records: Lewis Mills 1-2, Hyde 4-0

Last week's results: Coginchaug 41, Lewis Mills 6; Hyde 27, Wolcott Tech 0

Last season: Did not play as Lewis Mills did not field a varsity team.

Tiscia's pick: Hyde 41, Lewis Mills 6. All first-year varsity teams take their lumps at some point during the season. This will be one of those days for the Spartans.


Location: Old Saybrook High School

When: Saturday at 1 p.m.

Records: Wolcott Tech 0-4, Old Saybrook 1-3

Last week's results: Hyde 27, Wolcott Tech 0; Cromwell 26, Old Saybrook/Westbrook 0.

Last season's matchup: Did not meet.

Tiscia's pick: Old Saybrook 28, Wolcott Tech 13. I thought Wolcott Tech would secure its first varsity win two weeks ago against the Sports Science Medical Academy, but the Wildcats were unable to pull it out. I don't think they'll win this week, however, I see this being a competitive game.


Location: Enfield High School

When: Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

Records: Gilbert/Northwestern 4-0, Enfield 3-1

Last week's results: Gilbert/Northwestern 13, Stafford 0; Enfield 47, Canton 13

Last season's matchup: Did not meet

Tiscia's pick: Enfield 22, Gilbert/Northwestern 19. If the Yellowjackets are able pull this one off, it will go a long way in their quest for a state tournament berth. Gilbert is currently ranked third in Class M.


Location: Windsor Locks High School

When: Saturday,at 2:30 p.m.

Records: Housatonic/Wamogo 2-2, Windsor Locks 2-2

Last week's results: Ellington/Somers 41, Housatonic/Wamogo 15; Avon 43, Windsor Locks 0

Last season's matchup: Did not meet

Tiscia's pick: Housatonic/Wamogo 19, Windsor Locks 15. After two straight losses, the Mountaineers look primed to end their losing streak to a Windsor Locks team that is coming off an ugly loss to Avon.
