There wasn't a ton of movement in the power rankings this week, but there was certainly enough to keep things interesting. We'll dive into that and more in this week's report.
Can't Touch This
Sheehan's 62 - 27 win over Stratford last week had a lot to do with the leadership of junior Terrence Bogan. Bogan ran for 319 yards and also punched in four touchdowns. That performance made Bogan one of the best players in the power rankings last week.
Movin on Up
Newtown not only got the result it was looking for last game, but the team outscored its opponent Cheshire in every quarter. Newtown picked up a decisive 'W' against Cheshire, finishing up at 47 - 7. One of the main ringleaders for Newtown was senior Dan Mason, who rushed for 106 yards and three touchdowns. Newtown's success was rewarded with a ten-spot boost in the power rankings, the biggest improvement of any team.
Next Week's Big Game
If you are itching to watch a first-rate contest, no game is supposed to fit the bill better than the one between Darien (5th in the power rankings) and St. Joseph (1st). The two teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games. Given their high-scoring efforts against their previous opponents, we'll see how far they can run the score up this week.
