Varsity Blues: Week 3

Week 3 gave us much of the same. Some teams from our area were up, and others went down. Farmington remains as the top team in our circulation, while Canton won its second game. Most of the games were blowouts this week—win or losw, the few close games proved to be heartbreakers to our locals.

In Farmington….

The Indians keep rolling. They came away with a 42-12 win over Maloney to up their record to 3-0. Jeremy Buck had a small sample, but extremely impressive numbers. He completed five passes, but four went for touchdowns. He was 5 of 6 for 128 yards and the four scores. Stud running back Ivan Guadalupe also had a TD and 71 yards rushing on eight carries. The Indians are on a hot streak and appear to be a force to be reckoned with.

Canton

Everyone is noticing the Warriors lately. Their stunning win over Avon on opening day has caught the attention of many people in the state and the press clippings keep coming. Coming off the huge win, the Pequot schedule makers gave them a week 2 bye. It was a cruel twist, but the Warriors got back to business with a 47-6 win over Housatonic.

Dan Delos had three touchdown runs, but Terrence Brophy continued his huge season with six carries for 136 yards and a 79 yard touchdown run. The once also ran Warriors look to compete with Gilbert for their division crown.

Glastonbury

The Tomahawks beat South Windsor 42-14 on Saturday afternoon. Jalen Ollie had a career day throwing the football. He was 16 of 24 for 302 yards and four TDs Ollie is quickly emerging as one of the top QBs in the state. His athleticism threatens teams through the air and on the ground. I wonder where he placed in the Husky Run last week?

Enfield

The Raiders had a dominating victory over Stafford/East Windsor on Friday night with a 42-7 win. Jason Davis passed for 169 yards and ran for 150. Davis completed 6 of 7 passing attempts in the win. The Raiders jumped out to the early lead with an interception TD from Ryon Gates on the game’s first drive. That kicked off the evening just how Enfield wanted it to start.

Avon

Jimmy Murphy scored three TDs and Noah Hahn threw for two TD passes as the Falcons rolled Nonnewaug 47-6.

The other Raiders….

Windsor Locks/Suffield/East Granby was featured as a game of the week by The Hartford Courant, but it did not live up to the billing. The Raiders were demolished by The Morgan School 42-6; they are still undefeated in their division and in first place with Cromwell.

Ellington/Somers

The Knights fell flat on their face on a game of the week. CPTV sports filmed the game and the Knights couldn’t get out of their own way offensively. Cromwell took advantage of great field position and special teams errors to jump out to a 13-0 lead. The Knights fell 20-8 in a game that was never that close.

Fermi

It looked like the Falcons would snap their 24 game losing streak on Friday. They jumped out to a 15-0 lead behind the arm and leg of QB Andrew Wilcox. His field goal and two TD passes paced the Falcons, but they fell apart in the second half and dropped a tough 26-21 decision versus Bulkeley.

The rest…

Tolland fell to Berlin, 41-6, dropping to 0-3, Rockville was demoralized by Weaver 37-0, who snapped a 24 game losing streak of their own, dropping the Rams to 0-3 … South Windsor’s loss to Glastonbury dropped them to 0-3, as did Fermi’s loss to Bulkeley. … Simsbury was shutout by Southington, 38-0.
