(WTNH)–It’s not how you start, but how you finish that matters. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate cliches, but it applies to West Haven football. The Westies had a great season last year, a loaded squad in a loaded conference. But the season ended in the first round of the playoffs with a surprise loss to Ridgefield. The Tigers talked some trash, too.
The Blue Devils say this year is going to be different.
“That feeling, I always feel that feeling, and I want to feel it again. So I keep working, my teammates are coming out here in 84 degree weather, they’re out here working. They were a good team, we were a good team, things just didn’t turn out our way. If you go 10-0 and lose in the playoffs, that’s all you think about all offseason. So we just didn’t have 100 percent, but Ridgefield played a great game.
