City Sports Round-Up


Weaver Crushes Bulkeley 21-0 in Season Opener
A rock-solid defense and an explosive running game gave the defending two-time state champion Weaver Beavers an impressive 21-0 win over the Bulkeley High Bulldogs at Dillon Stadium last Saturday afternoon. It was the team's first game under new Head Coach Lee Hunt, who replaced Dave Hodge.

The aptly named John Weaver gave the Beaver's their first touchdown of the game with a 10-yard-run late in the first quarter. Weaver's Dorelle Harrison almost scored the team's second touchdown but had the ball ripped from his hands inside the 10-yard-line by Bulkeley's Israel Rivera. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, however, an alert Walter Champion scooped up the ball for Weaver and dashed the remaining eight yards to the goal line.

Harrison scored the team's final TD late in the game with a 33-yard-run following a Patrick Small fumble recovery. Kimali Sinclair booted the ball through the uprights for extra points on all three Weaver touchdowns.

Weaver (1-0) will next play Manchester (0-0) at Manchester this Friday at 7 pm. Bulkeley will be travelling out of state to play a team from Gardner, Massachusetts.

HPHS Girl's Soccer Season Opens with Heartbreaker
