TRUMBULL — Believing the cliché you have to beat the best in order to be the best is nothing groundbreaking in sports.
It is rare however, to see a matchup where both teams have that same belief about each other.
And, in this instance, both have a point.
GameTimeCT No. 1 St. Joseph dominated then-No. 1 New Canaan at home in its opener to the tune of 28-0, while No. 3 Darien has won the last three Class LL titles and has outscored its opponents 65-6 through two games.
The two heavyweights will do battle Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Joseph High School in Trumbull.
