TRUMBULL — Defending FCIAC champion Ridgefield went undefeated in a shortened league schedule a year ago. St. Joseph brought a 14-0 league mark into the regular season finale at the Vito Montelli gym on Wednesday night.
Everything was going to plan for No. 5 St. Joseph until it wasn’t.
Ridgefield’s defense forced turnovers down the stretch, then made its free throws, denying St. Joseph a perfect league slate as the Tigers rallied to defeat the Cadets 53-49.
