Wildcats' season ends in semifinals

The Fairfield Wildcat 8th grade football team lost to Darien, 21-12, in the Fairfield County Football League semifinals on Nov. 16.
Darien took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Wildcats answered back.
An amazing 50-yard dodge-and-run by Wildcat Jack Curtis positioned Fairfield for the score.
The Wildcats’ quarterback, Matt Cerminaro took advantage of the optimal field position and snuck through Darien’s tough defensive line for Fairfield’s first score of the day.
The extra-point attempt was thwarted by Darien and the Wildcats trailed going into halftime, 7-6.
Despite the efforts of a strong Wildcat defensive team, led by Clay Zachery, Wil Parisi, AJ Valus, Jack Kovaleski, Justin Keith and Joey Turner, Darien scored in the third quarter and again early in the fourth period to  increase its lead to 21-6.
The Wildcats were resilient though, and after a first down earned by Timmy Jacobi, Josh Evans scored the second Fairfield touchdown after a strong run.
The Wildcats successful season ended with a final record of 6-3-1.
