STAMFORD — The game plan for the Stamford High football team was simple.
Ground and pound.
Sticking largely to the running game, Stamford ran to a 19-7 win over rival Trinity Catholic Saturday afternoon.
All the points in the game came in the second half.
“The game plan was run first. Our receivers are a little mad about it, but we felt like we were a little bigger than them and we felt we would be run first and ground and pound today,” Stamford coach Jamar Greene said. “We knew we had the counter in our back pocket. We tried to run it late in the third quarter but messed up the snap, but we saw it was still going to be there. We knew it would hit. We didn’t know it would be for a touchdown, but we knew it would be for big yardage.”
