A steal from the lions to start off their home opener. Foran football won against Branford, 38-0. The home opener, last Friday night honored 9/11, featured good music from the Foran Marching Band along with a lot of school spirit by all spectators. Over a hundred kids filled the Foran student section wearing red and blue accompanied by posters and cowbells in support of their classmates. Senior football player Sam Kopatch says, “We are coming in strong this season. We had a lot of players step up, especially in defense. We have a great team and great coaches. I am very excited for this season.” The two stars of the night, RJ Balado and Colin Firmender, both scored 2 touchdowns leading the team to victory.
Many Foran students are looking forward to football season and Friday night lights. “The games are a great way to get the student body to come together. It feels good to be a part of a school that has such good spirit and strong passion for their team. I try to attend every game,” says senior Sydney Szalkiewicz. Senior Captain Noah Hubler says, “I can’t wait for November 13th. We are playing North Haven and it’s going to be an intense game.” Mark your calendars for the next home game on Friday, October 16th. Go lions!
