Friday's Football Game Time Changed



Text Size

The time for the football game between Newtown High School and host Brookfield, set for Friday, November 2, has been changed.

Originally scheduled for a 7 pm kickoff, the game was rescheduled for a 5 pm start, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference announced shortly after noon on Thursday.

With rain in the forecast throughout the day, Brookfield High athletics department representatives said an expected break in the weather prompted the time change.

Newtown is 7-0 overall, and Brookfield is 6-1. Both teams are unbeaten at 5-0 in South-West Conference play. Brookfield's lone setback was a 17-7 defeat to Southern Connecticut Conference team North Haven, on October 12.

The Nighthawks are coming off a 45-8 win at previously-unbeaten Bunnell of Stratford, and the Bobcats are coming off a 41-20 triumph at Notre Dame-Fairfield.
