Horrible, rainy conditions are not exactly conducive to a productive passing game. Yeah, try telling that to Ridgefield coach Kevin Callahan or his quarterback, Owen Matthews.
“We came in (to Friday’s game at Fairfield Warde) wanting to run more,” Callahan said, referring to the rain. But Matthews threw for 245 yards and three touchdowns in Ridgefield’s 29-0 victory. “Matthews usually gets a good grip on the ball even in the rain so we were able to throw it.”
