Connecticut High School Football Team Files Protest over Opponent Using Its Play Sheet Armband

Manchester High School in Connecticut is furious.

Southington High School thinks it's not a big deal.

Now it's the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Association's time to decide who's right.

Manchester officials have filed an official protest with the CIAC over its team's 28-14 loss to Southington on October 22nd.  The protest stems from Manchester head coach Marco Pizzoferrato's accusation in the Hartford Courant that his opponent used a Manchester armband that contained his plays to help the Southington defense.

Southington High has already decided to suspend its coach D.J. Hernandez for one-game following its own internal investigation.  Hernandez has admitted to using the arm band for "four plays", according to a report in the Hartford Courant.

Southington gained control of the armband card sometime late in the first half when it came off a Manchester player
