On demand: St. Joseph at Ridgefield softball
St. Joseph, the only softball team undefeated in FCIAC play, travels to take on the Tigers on a cloudy, misty afternoon in Ridgefield. You can watch the Wednesday, May 4, game live (or later on-demand) in the video player below:
The Cadets, 8-0 in the FCIAC and 10-1 overall, lead the FCIAC East Division by 2.5 games while Ridgefield in third place in the West. The Tigers (8-4, 5-3) are tied for sixth place overall in the league. The top eight teams make the FCIAC postseason tournament; there are two weeks left in the regular season.
This game is the HAN Network’s second softball game broadcast of the 2016 spring season — and first game this week in rainy Fairfield County. You can watch past games (which include baseball, softball, boys and girls lacrosse, and volleyball) on-demand for free at this link.
Because of the postponements this week, HAN has added Westhill at Ridgefield baseball to the schedule for Friday, May 6, at 4. We'll also have Connecticut's top boys lacrosse team against New York's when St. Anthony's travels to Darien on Thursday, May 5, at 4. Here's the complete broadcast schedule.
How to watch
