There’s no way of knowing now what will wind up happening down the line.
But if the Ridgefield Tigers do indeed wind up becoming one of Connecticut’s premier programs on a year-in, year-out basis, then mark down this date.
June 2, 2009.
No matter what happens though, it’s a date that will go down in program history. On this date tonight, in fact the Tigers beat Darien 7-6 in overtime to win the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference championship for the first time.
“Just hearing you say that send chills down my spine,” said Ridgefield senior attackman Matt White, who scored the winning goal with 2:44 left in OT off a fastbreak feed from Matt Baker.
During the regular season, White scored in overtime to give the Tigers another first a 8-7 win over Darien that was Ridgefield’s first against the Blue Wave since the 1984 season the year Darien launched its varsity program.
