Staples Will Meet Newington in CIAC Football Semifinal Tuesday

The Staples Wreckers, 9-1 on the season, will meet the Newington Indians, also 9-1, Tuesday night under the lights at Staples in a Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) semifinal.

Staples won its right to advance to the semifinal with Thursday’s 38-0 lopsided win over Fairfield Warde while Newington defeated Wethersfield 44-21 for a berth in the Class L game. Staples is ranked No. 2 in the class while Newington is No. 3.

The game will begin at 6:30 p.m. using temporary lights. Members of the Staples Gridiron Club Inc. donated $15,000 to install the lighting, which has been approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals.
