FAIRFIELD PREP-SHELTON FOOTBALLMATCHUP WILL BE TELEVISED ON MSG
September 28 contest is Snapple High School Football Game of the Week

Fairfield Prep and Shelton, the defending Southern Connecticut Conference Division I West football cochampions, will meet on Friday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. at Finn Stadium. The divisional game will be televised on MSG as the Snapple High School Football Game of the Week.

The game will air on MSG on Sunday, September 30. Check your local listings for the time.

Led by head coach Jeff Roy, Shelton (10) is ranked in the top ten in all of the state’s preseason polls. The Gaels defeated West Haven, 4924, in its 2007 season opener on September 14. Shelton (83
a year ago) tied Fairfield Prep for the Division I West crown (31) and earned a berth in the Class LL state playoffs before falling to Southington.

Directed by head coach Rich Magdon, Fairfield Prep (10) opened the 2007 season in fine fashion by blanking Wilbur Cross, 280, on September 14. The Jesuits, 83 last year, also reached the CIAC Class LL semifinals before falling to eventual champion Greenwich.

Last year, Fairfield Prep defeated Shelton, 149, in their regular season meeting in Fairfield. Shelton had won the previous two meetings (310 in 2004 and 100 in 2005).

“Mike Quick and MSG do a great job covering high school sports in the tristate area and I’m pleased they’ve chosen this game – an important SCC match up between two traditionally strong football programs,” SCC Commissioner Al Carbone said. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase both schools and our conference, and of course, what a thrill for the student-athletes to play in front of a TV audience.”
