Wreckers Announce 2012 Regular Season Schedule

A home opener against Harding; a Saturday morning “Alumni Day” game versus Wilton; a home Columbus Day match with Greenwich — and a killer stretch in October of 4 very tough opponents — highlight Staples’ 2012 FCIAC boys soccer schedule.

The Wreckers have 8 home matches, and 8 away. Their lone Saturday contest — September 22 — will be “Alumni Day.” A very tough part of the slate starts October 1, with an away game in Norwalk. Trumbull (away), Greenwich (home) and Darien (home) quickly follow.

The season ends just as brutally: with Westhill (home), New Canaan (home) and Danbury (away), in the span of 6 days.

“Of course, this is the FCIAC — every game can be a killer,” says head coach Dan Woog. “Right now, our goal is to be ready for anything when the season starts on September 11.”

Because there are 19 league teams, but the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) allows only 16 regular season games, the Wreckers miss 2 opponents. This year, those teams are Stamford and Bassick.

  1. In 2010, the boys didn’t play Stamford and Bassick either; it has to be a very low probability for that to occur in consecutive seasons like it has.

    • The reason is simple: FCIAC seasons generally stay the same for 2 consecutive years. The only change is that the last game of the previous year becomes the first one of the next year, and home-and-away sites are flipped.
