Foran and North Haven clashed Sunday evening in a relatively big game with playoff implications, not to mention the SCC Division II East title.
While Foran fought the good fight, North Haven used heavy doses of Ethan Suraci in the second half and got a key fumble recovery for a touchdown to post a 28-7 victory at the Vito DeVito Sports Complex.
North Haven (5-3) wins the SCC D-II East title and keep its faint Class L playoff hopes alive. Those hopes, however, had already taken a crushing hit when Fitch defeated New London on Saturday.
Foran drops to 4-3, well back in the Class M playoff race.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Guilford hammered Law, East Lyme and Morgan won.
We have a few local games on the docket today. Rivals Bullard-Havens and O’Brien Tech play at 2. Derby and Seymour face off at 6.
We’re also anxiously awaiting any further news from the FCIAC which, despite repeated weather warnings and continued school closures in Fairfield County, is on track to proceed with its Thursday-Tuesday Week 8-9 schedule.
The board of directors is meeting today to discuss options in the already messy league tournaments in other sports. Sources have told me they might take a look at the football situation.
Let’s hope so.
