COVENTRY -- For Coventry, it’s been a long time coming. As for Haddam-Killingworth, it only takes one win to get the ball rolling.
This week’s High School Football Patrol Game of the Week pits one of the football season’s pleasant surprises against a battle-tested squad that is ready to make a run to the postseason.
The Coventry co-op squad, which consists of the title town, Windham Tech, Bolton, and Lyman Memorial, is 4-0 through the first month of the season. It’s a far cry from 2015, when the team went 0-10. But this season, they are on a torrid pace to finish better than their 2016 season where they finished 5-5.
Haddam-Killingworth on the other hand, finds themselves 2-2 after difficult outings against Cromwell/Portland, one of the top Class S teams, and a grueling 34-26 loss at the hands of Coginchaug in the early September heat.
Each team is rather familiar with the other. H-K has earned victories in back-to-back years over Coventry by a combined score of 59-8. Both teams, though, are aware that the new year doesn’t guarantee the same result, as the Cougars and Patriots are preparing for their foes’ best.
