Get yourself to Taft tonight! Fairfield Ludlowe Boys Football has been soaring this season, producing tremendous results in entertaining games. Through six games, just past the halfway point of the season, the Falcons stand at 4 wins to 2 losses, facing four more games before the end of the regular season. The team started hot out of the gates, winning their first three games over Simsbury, Central, and Hamden. After dropping a game to a dominant New Canaan team, the Falcons bounced back with a shootout victory at home against the Ridgefield Tigers. Despite losing to, in what was still a great game, Darien this past week, Ludlowe has been looking strong.

Senior quarterback Chris Bellantoni has put up great numbers this season, truly standing out against Simsbury where he tossed five touchdowns on the way to a win, receiving Ruden Report “Player of The Week” nomination for his performance. Another Falcon who got the spotlight was Justin Toothaker. The junior running back finished with 263 total yards and three touchdowns to lead Ludlowe to victory against Ridgefield, along with winning “Player of The Week” honors. On the defensive end,  junior Jackson Frame was awarded “Player of The Week” for a dominating 3 interception performance on defense, and adding a receiving touchdown to help lead an upset over Hamden. Overall though, the individual standouts should not overshadow the exceptionally cohesive play of the team. Ludlowe football has been firing on all cylinders and dominating the turf.

Ludlowe hopes to qualify for the CIAC playoffs. Facing three more opponents before ending out the season with the traditional Thanksgiving morning game against Warde. An event that will surely be action-packed. Ludlowe looks to finish on a high note, gaining momentum through each of their end results.

With a game coming up on October 27th at home against Brian McMahon, the Falcons will look to rebound from the tough loss to Darien. They look to show other teams that they are a force to be reckoned with, and with the only way they know how: a complete team effort in all three phases of the game (offense, defense and special teams). However, no matter the result, Ludlowe will make it an entertaining game. The fans will cheer the entire game, lead chants and blare music, and, if everything goes according to plan, the crowd will be watching the Falcons soar to another victory.
