Warde defeats Trumbull, Bisack throws for three scores

With senior quarterback Brandon Bisack running the show, the Fairfield Warde football team has quietly developed into one of the most dangerous spread offenses in the FCIAC.
Trumbull can certainly attest to that, as Bisack shredded the Eagles for 296 yards and three touchdowns to lead the undefeated Mustangs to a 23-7 victory Friday night at McDougall Field.
Trumbull (0-2) jumped out to a 7-0 lead after starting quarterback Stephen Nagy scored on a 1-yard run on the opening drive of the game.
But Warde’s defense turned the game around with two first-quarter fumble recoveries then blanked the Eagles the rest of the night.
Bisack did the rest, completing 27 of 41 passes while throwing touchdown strikes of 13 yards to junior Jack Polenza, 28 yards to backup running back Nick Nardone and a 19-yard clincher early in the fourth quarter to fellow senior captain Ryan Brown, who finished off a huge night with 10 catches for 127 yards.
Warde is now 2-0 having posted a 24-21 victory over Foran in the season-opener. It’s the first 2-0 start for the program since 2009, the last time it finished with a .500 record or better.
It was also the first victory against Trumbull since 1971 when current Trumbull head coach Bob Maffei was a junior at Andrew Warde and the late, great Jerry McDougall had the Eagles at the top of the FCIAC every season.
