FAIRFIELD — Two months ago, the New Canaan Rams were 3-2 and were staring at a lost football season with no playoffs for the first time in 14 years.

Now, they’re ready to rumble for a state championship.

New Canaan delivered its most complete performance of the season on a big stage as the Rams rolled to a dominating 38-7 victory over Fairfield Prep in the CIAC Class LL semifinals Sunday at Rafferty Stadium in Fairfield.

The Rams put up nearly 500 yards of offense and the defense was stifling, allowing Prep just 71 total yards in the first half en route to the win.

New Canaan will be making its 11th appearance in the state finals in the past 13 years, after missing out on the title game last season.
