It was a spectacular weekend on the high school sports scene with big games, nail-biting finishes, and jaw-dropping performances.

On Friday night, Bridgeport Central and Westhill met in an FCIAC showdown. The Vikings had just one loss on their record while Central came in undefeated. Both teams are loaded with talent and it was on display for everyone to see in Stamford. Jerermiah Livingston put on a show. The Westhill star scored 43 points as the Vikings beat Central, 78-75 in overtime.

Greenwich put perfection on the line against Darien with an 11-o record. They continue to roll and rack up the wins. C.J. Bryd finished an incredible month by scoring 21 points in the Cardinals 60-49 victory.

On Saturday, the FCIAC held its 17th annual cheerleading competition. It was highly-spirited affair that shined the light on those who sacrifice a lot of time and energy to support their respective high school teams without getting the recogntion they so richly deserve. 13 cheerleading teams took the floor and it was Fairfield Warde that left with the top prize.

St. Joseph and the Staples/Weston/Shelton co-op met on Saturday, as well. The teams battled back in forth and settled for a 4-4 tie in overtime.

The SWC held its annual indoor championship track meet in New Haven. Weston took the girls title while New Fairfield captured the boys crown.

The weekend wrapped up with the New Fairfield Duals Finals. The intense wrestling tournament came to a climax with Danbury meeting New England powerhouse Timberlane on center stage. The Hatters came close to pulling off the win, but fell 33-29
