Football: Staples vs. Darien

With a date in the 50th FCIAC Football Championship on the line, the Wreckers take on the Darien Blue Wave

The Darien Blue Wave came into Saturday’s game against Staples just two wins away from defending their FCIAC football title. But a Staples win would put the Wreckers in the championship against New Canaan, who won on Friday night clinching a spot in the title game.

The Staples Wreckers (6-1) take on the Darien Blue Wave (7-0) at Darien High School for the HAN Network’s FCIAC Game of the Week today. Below you can watch both the game and HAN’s pregame shows, which were broadcast live from Darien High School on Saturday, Nov. 14.
