FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: WL Raiders, Tomahawks win big

WINDSOR LOCKS — The Windsor Locks Raiders took care of visiting Nonnewaug Friday night in front of a packed house.

Locks moved to 3-1 on the year with the 19-8 victory. The Raiders scored a touchdown on their first drive, but were kept off the scoreboard again until the third quarter.  Senior QB Ago Jiminez completed three of his six passes to Nate Pierce for 52 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Junior Running Back Jarvis Miller led Locks on the ground with 10 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown.

Windsor Locks’ defense looked strong, holding Nonnewaug to a single scoring drive, which came late in the fourth quarter.  The Raider’s D was anchored by Jeremy Wilson (13 tackles), Nick Condon (10 tackles, 1 sack), and Jake Lareau (6 tackles, 1 interception).  Windsor Locks looks to continue their winning ways at home next Saturday against Old Saybrook.
