Today’s show starts with Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman breaking down Darien’s 37-34 overtime win over rival New Canaan in Turkey Bowl 2016.
After jumping out to a 34-10 lead the Blue Wave saw the 24 point difference dissipate over the final 13 minutes of play as the Rams climbed all the way back to force overtime after Ryan O’Connell scored with less than 20 seconds remaining in regulation.
