Ansonia won record 124 games in decade; Records of all state teams in 2010s

Darien players celebrate after winning the Class LL championship in 2015 with a 39-7 win over Shelton. Darien won 109 games in the 2010 decade and three state championships.

In the decade of the 2010s, high school football teams in Connecticut got plenty of opportunities to play football.

Twice in the 2010s, teams had the opportunity to play up to 11 regular season games in 2013 and 2014.

In 2013, Ansonia, New Canaan and St. Joseph each played  a state-record 15 games – 11 regular season games, a league championship game and three CIAC tournament games. It’s a mark that won’t be broken any time soon.

All three teams played five games in the final 20 days of the season. 2013 was the final year for the Naugatuck Valley League championship game. The Southwest Conference title game ended in 2014 and the final FCIAC championship game was in 2015.

Ansonia went a state-record 15-0 and won the Class S championship while New Canaan went 14-1 and brought home the Class L title.  St. Joseph (13-2) won the Class M championship.

Before the 2010s, only four teams had won 100 or more games in a single decade. In this decade (2010s), five teams won more than 100 games with Ansonia setting a new state record with 124 wins.

The Chargers were 124-9 with a state-record winning percentage of .932. Ansonia benefited from playing in the CIAC state tournament for 10 straight years, going 21-6 and a 3-1 record in the NVL championship game. The Chargers won at least 11 games every year.

Darien had the second-best winning percentage in the 2010 decade with 109 wins. The Blue Wave won three state championships and went 13-0 twice.

New Canaan (107-21), Newtown (103-17) and St. Joseph (100-24) also won more than 100 games in the decade.

Prior to the 2010 decade, only Hyde-New Haven (101-13), Ansonia (102-16) and Staples (100-18) had more than 100 victories in the 2000s. In the 20th century, Ansonia was the only team with more than 100 wins in a decade by going 104-12 in the 1990s.

To compile the top 15 schools in the 2010 decade, we added up the regular season and post-season record for each school. Some have closed – notably Hyde School in New Haven while other programs have joined co-op programs.

When it comes to a co-op program, the host school gets credit for wins and losses when compiling historical team records, according to the Connecticut High School Football Record Book.
