Please click on the Class above to go to that Class.


Class LL

No. 8  TRUMBULL (7-3) at No. 1 SOUTHINGTON (9-1)

— Trumbull, which played for a Class LL title five of the first 11 times the CIAC played off, is back in the postseason for the first time in a dozen years.

— Southington, No. 1 in the GameTimeCT Top 10 Poll, has weathered playmaker Evan Anderson’s injury and rebounded from its first loss (Maloney in double overtime) with back-to-back wins.  

No. 5 FAIRFIELD PREP (7-3) at No. 4 STAPLES (9-1)

— There may not be two hotter teams right now. Fairfield Prep started 1-3 but swept through SCC Tier I and capped the regular season with a win over then-No. 1 West Haven. 

— Staples is a potent offense that has failed to score more than three touchdowns only once. The Wreckers have won eight in a row since a Week 2 loss at St. Joseph. 

No. 6 GLASTONBURY (8-2) at No. 3 WEST HAVEN (9-1)

— Glastonbury, which hasn’t been to a semifinal in 10 years, made its statement late in the year with an overtime win over then-No. 1 Maloney. 

— West Haven spent a week at No. 1 after a last-minute thriller against Hamden but fell to Fairfield Prep the night before Thanksgiving to drop into the third seed. 

No. 7 HAMDEN (8-2) at No. 2 GREENWICH (8-2)

— Both teams come into the playoffs off a Thanksgiving loss: Hamden has lost its past two since a perfect start, while the Cardinals lost a back-and-forth tilt with Staples.

— Greenwich, which was an early-season No. 1 in the GameTimeCT Top 10 Poll, lost QB Jack Wilson to injury in last year’s quarterfinal loss. He has been solid again this season.

Class L

No. 8  CHESHIRE (6-4) vs. No. 1 ST. JOSEPH (9-1) at Kennedy Stadium, Bridgeport

— St. Joseph rides a five-game winning streak since a loss at Greenwich into this game.

— Cheshire lost three out of four to end the regular season but outpointed Darien for the last Class L spot.

No. 5 NAUGATUCK (8-2) at No. 4 NEW CANAAN (9-1)

— New Canaan weathered a handful of key injuries at the start of the season and lost only to St. Joseph in its seventh game. 

— The Greyhounds had won four in a row, including a 41-0 skunking of playoff-bound Woodland, before Ansonia shut them down in the second half on Thanksgiving. 

No. 6 NEW MILFORD (7-3) at No. 3 MALONEY (9-1) at Falcon Field, Meriden

— Maloney, defending a championship for the first time, meet New Milford, playing for one for the first time.

— New Milford has won five in a row since losses to Masuk and Newtown and have scored at least 28 in all five 

No. 7 SHELTON (6-4) at No. 2 NEWTOWN (9-1)

— The teams split games at Shelton’s Finn Stadium over the two previous seasons, with Newtown winning in 2019 on the way to its Class LL title. 

Class MM

No. 8  WILTON (7-3) vs. No. 1 SMSA (10-0) at Weaver HS, Hartford

— No, Wilton’s last game was not that 2019 playoff game, but the Warriors haven’t played since Nov. 10. 

— SMSA’s Danny Hernandez has often posted eye-popping numbers; his rushing and passing totals add up to nearly 3,000 yards. Since wins over Granby/Canton (21-14) and Rockville (7-6) in the first two weeks, none of the Tigercats’ games has been closer than 22 points. 

No. 5 NORTH HAVEN (8-2) vs. No. 4 THAMES RIVER (10-0) at Grasso Tech, Groton

— The Outlow brothers’ arrival added to returning standout Cunningham helped turn Thames River into a dominant CTC team, outscoring opponents 485-19 with the starters only playing limited minutes.

— North Haven held six SCC Tier I opponents to 62 points and pitched shutouts in three of its other four games. 

No. 6 WETHERSFIELD (8-2) at No. 3 KILLINGLY (9-1)

— This is Killingly’s seventh playoff appearance in a row, and it has two championships in that span.

— Wethersfield had a six-game winning streak snapped the night before Thanksgiving against Newington.  

No. 7 MASUK (7-3) vs. No. 2 NORTHWEST UNITED (10-0) at Nonnewaug HS, Woodbury

— Northwest United, after a 2020 change in makeup from the old MCW United co-op, has gone 17-3 the past two seasons in the CTC.

— Masuk was a last-second Trumbull touchdown and a few inches on a field goal at St. Joseph away from a possible 9-0 start. And, OK, then the Panthers played Newtown (46-12), but they’ve been competitive with some good teams and put up at least 30 points in all but two games. 

Class M

No. 8  BRANFORD (5-5) vs. No. 1 BERLIN (10-0) at Sage Park, Berlin

No. 5 ATI (8-2) at No. 4 ROCKVILLE (8-2)
