Make-ups bring possible flux to season
For a second week in a row, East Haven and Westhill won’t be able to play their football games this weekend, so let’s watch the rescheduling ballet.
Last week’s Westhill game against Trumbull was moved to one of their original open dates — “the bye week,” in football — on Oct. 8. Westhill had no common bye weeks with this week’s opponent, Hamden. To make it work, Hamden switched two other games: Law from Nov. 5 to Nov. 12, a bye week in common, and then Sheehan from Nov. 18 to now-open Nov. 5. That allowed the Westhill game to move to Nov. 18.
Take a breath. The other half will be easier.
East Haven had its game against Lyman Hall last week moved, similarly, to Oct. 8, a bye week in many original schedules. This week, East Haven was to face Weston, and again, no common bye weeks there.
