Every year a team loses a player. It could be a season-ending injury before a season begins. It could be a recurring ankle sprain. This season injuries added a particular challenge for Trumbull. There was no continuity from day one.
“We had our entire roster for three games this year,” Trumbull coach Steve Tobitsch said of the Eagles. “That was the Amity Holiday Tournament for the championship game, the Newington game when the then No. 1 team in the state came to play us, and then Danbury which was our best FCIAC performance this year.”
