The Windham football team lost 13 seniors to graduation last year and coach Randall Prose wasn’t sure what to expect this season.
But the Whippets are 6-2 and just clinched the ECC Division II title with a 48-0 win over Weaver.
“They’re doing better than I expected,” Prose said. “We lost all those seniors.”
Windham started off the season with a 12-6 win over Griswold/Wheeler, who is now 8-1. The Whippets lost to Killingly then won their next four games, including a 20-13 win over Stonington, who was 6-0 coming in.
“We’re only giving up like 12 points a game,” Prose said. “The defense has been our strength. The offense, we’re struggling a little to score. Our games have been really close.”
Windham is ranked second in Class SS. It plays New Fairfield Thursday in a makeup game from the first game of the season, which was postponed due to bad weather.
Bloomfield’s game against Tolland was suspended in the third quarter Friday night with Bloomfield leading 14-7 after an unidentified Bloomfield player was injured and was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
According to Tolland athletic director Tim McCluskey, the Bloomfield players were shaken up and it was decided the game should be postponed until Monday at 6 p.m. Bloomfield athletic director Allison Borowski said only that there was a player injury and “he’s fine now.”
