I thought Law deserved a little better than 42-0. But, as the game evolved, Fairfield Prep just scored, then scored again. After Law failed to respond on three more opportunities, Prep scored twice more before halftime and then put his game away in the third.
It wasn’t a complete destruction, but Prep’s defense was simply dominant against a team that will likely have a shot at reaching the Class M state playoffs.
Law was only down 7-0 in the second quarter, but gave up the ball on downs twice in Fairfield Prep territory, including once on fourth and 3 from the Prep 10 following this play on third-and-1 from the 8:
Then Milford resident Connor Kelly, who had already scored on this 16-yard run…
…scored from 25-yards out (on a play during which I just caught the tail-end)…
And then John Cunningham caught a pair of touchdown passes, including this grab with 35.1 seconds remaining in the first half.
Ahead 28-0 at halftime, the Jesuits were off and running.
QB Mike Autore scored on this short run for a 35-0 lead.
And, as everybody knows, we were already talking about the upcoming game: Shelton.
I’d absolutely LOVE to say more. But I’m saving it all during my podcast on Monday night and don’t want to ruin the surprise.
Until then, this is SPB
