Game 8: St. Peter's at Fairfield

Hello from the Harbor! Tom Cleary and I live here for Fairfield's first MAAC game of the season - a Friday night matchhup against St. Peter's. The Stags enter the game riding a three game win streak, which includes a road win over Jesuit rival Holy Cross and an Alumni Hall thriller over American, last season's Patriot League champions.

A year or two ago, head coach Ed Cooley admitted these were games that Fairfield probably would have lost.

Whether or not the Stags are a 'great' team yet remains to be seen, but a sign of a team ready for a run at a conference title is that they win the games they are supposed to win. Tonight certainly qualifies as one of those games.

More to come.
