High School Football

Owls Open with Hard-Fought Win

Always be ready for the fake punt - especially if the punter happens to be an All-State running back. Windham's football team apparently forgot this simple rule last Saturday afternoon when Hartford Public's Darrion Williams decided not to kick the ball away on fourth and long late in the third quarter and instead ran for 13 yards to give the Owls a first down on the Windham 45-yard-line. The play set up a scoring drive capped by an 18-yard touchdown run by Jason Wyatt to tie the game up 6-6 with less then three minutes remaining in the third quarter.
Williams then ran in for the two-point conversion giving the Owls a 8-6 lead. That turned out to be good enough as Hartford Public's defense hung tough throughout the fourth quarter to preserve the win.
The Owls will take on New Britain at home this Friday.

Beavers Roll Over Manchester
Walter Champion's quick hands helped the Weaver Beavers leap to a 26-0 first half lead over Manchester last Friday night. The Beavers won the game by a final score of 33-13. Champion started the scoring in the first quarter by returning an interception for a 47-yard touchdown. Later, in the second quarter, he caught a 26-yard pass from quarterback Tim Rush. Also scoring for the Beavers in the first half were John Weaver and Joe Balfour. Manchester managed to score a TD in the third quarter and another in the fourth but couldn't quite catch the Beavers, who put the icing on the cake with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Rush to Andre King. Weaver will next face Wethersfield at home this Saturday.
