FCIAC-SCC football

In an unprecedented agreement involving two of the top high school conferences in the state, the Southern Connecticut Conference (SCC) and the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (FCIAC) will play 24 football games in each of the next two seasons (2013 and 2014).

With the 2013 and 2014 seasons each having an extra week (an 11th game) on the schedule, the SCC and FCIAC will have 17 head-to-head contests in the first week in both years (competing teams will alternate home and away). The home teams will be decided in the very near future

The leagues will utilize four days — Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday — to play the games to allow for maximum interest and attendance. More information about sites, dates, tickets and promotions will be available soon.

Here are the Week 1 SCC/FCIAC Challenge matchups in 2013-14:

New Canaan vs. Daniel Hand

Staples vs. Xavier

Darien vs. Hillhouse

Ridgefield vs. Cheshire

Greenwich vs. West Haven

St. Joseph vs. Notre Dame

Bpt. Central vs. North Haven

Trumbull vs. Shelton

Stamford vs. Fairfield Prep

Danbury vs. Hamden

Wilton vs. Guilford

Fairfield Warde vs. Foran

Trinity Catholic vs. Sheehan

Brien McMahon vs. Wilbur Cross

Fairfield Ludlowe vs. Lyman Hall

Bassick vs. East Haven

Harding vs. Jonathan Law

Please note: Branford and Amity (SCC) will not play in week 1 as Amity had previously committed to playing Seymour. Branford will play another opponent (TBD). Norwalk and Westhill (FCIAC) will play in week one.

In addition, seven additional SCC-FCIAC games will be played in each of the next two seasons.

Since both leagues have an odd number of teams playing football, teams in each league have open weeks in their schedules.

As a result, the leagues were able to match up seven games.
