When bad weather knocked out both the Newtown and Glastonbury pre-season scrimmages, it looked like Staples would have only 3 opportunities for warm-up matches.
Then Ridgefield postponed its match against the Wreckers, after starting school late due to Hurricane Irene — pushing opening day back to Friday, September 16.
The match is set for 4 p.m., at Loeffler Field.
“Mark Landers is a great guy, and a good friend,” said Staples head coach Dan Woog. “We love playing quality teams, and we really appreciate his team coming down. We look forward to a great game.”
