As we enter the 2017 FCIAC football season, there will be some enticing week one match ups including HAN Network’s Saturday afternoon game of the week between the Cardinals and the Eagles. These two teams will showcase their talented quarterbacks, Gavin Muir (Greenwich) and Colton Nicholas (Trumbull). In 2016, the Greenwich Cardinals finished 7-3 overall but fell to Darien in the Class LL state quarterfinals. The Trumbull Eagles last season finished 7-3 overall and fell just short of making the state tournament. When these two teams met last season, it was the Greenwich Cardinals who took home a 42-32 victory over Trumbull. The Eagles look to flip the script and get revenge on the Cardinals to start the season. This is a game you don’t want to miss Saturday afternoon!
