STORYLINES: There is a ton of off the field storylines surrounding this game: choice school and success modifiers: but the game is won on the field, but it’s no often two defending champions are pitted against each other in the playoffs the next season. After losing a ton of talent from last year’s team, Killingly is back in the mix with a shot to get back to championship game and defend its title. St. Joseph won Class S last season and was moved up to Class M. After being moved up, St. Joseph was tabbed as the favorite and here the Hogs are with a chance to reach the finals. The Hogs have faced a grueling regular season schedule to get here.
