The top-eight teams at the end of the regular season advance to the state playoffs.
Following Wednesday night’s 53-16 rout of Bridgeport Central, Ridgefield is now 7-2 with one regular-season contest remaining: Next Wednesday night’s FCIAC Thanksgiving rivalry game at Danbury (2-7).
Seven teams have already clinched playoff spots in Class LL, leaving Ridgefield as one of six teams still mathematically alive for the eighth and final berth.
The Tigers, who have 840 points, will need to beat Danbury and hope that West Haven, currently seventh with 950 points, loses its finale to Fairfield Prep.
