Weston 47, Stratford 14
The Red Devils battled tough for a quarter of play, trailing by just a touchdown, before the visiting Trojans ripped off 33 straight points at Penders Field.
The Red Devils actually struck first as Stratford quarterback Trey Lanham connected with Kaleb Lanfontant on a 42-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage.
Lafontant later added a 14-yard touchdown run, as well.
“They were a good team with a lot of senior starters,” Stratford coach Jack Petion told GameTimeCT. “We’re just young and we had a couple of injuries tonight. They are playing hard, but we have a lot of first-time players.”
Masuk 37, Bunnell 13
The Bulldogs took a 7-0 lead before Masuk stormed back to take the win at home in Monroe.
Jovan Eggleston scored on a 1-yard dive to give the Bulldogs the lead.
Tyreek Smith later had a 63-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dylan Vancho, as well.
The Bulldogs fell to 0-4.

Masuk 4, Stratford 3
The Stratford High School boys soccer team lost to Masuk at home on Saturday, 4-3.
Again, Stratford started off well and were growing into the match and conceded a relatively soft goal against the run of play when a defender missed an attempt to clear the ball and the Masuk attacker pounced on the opportunity, rocketing the ball past goalie Justin Forizs from inside the penalty box.
Then, a few minutes later, Masuk was awarded a penalty, but Forizs saved it and Stratford defenders cleared the ball.
Seizing the momentum, Stratford fought back, and equalized when senior Nico Cuevas scored on a bit of a scramble in front of the net.
The play started with a cross from junior Max Maria from the right, which fell to senior Thomas Castro’s feet but he couldn’t put it away. Castro stuck with the ball, taking another shot, which was deflected but not cleared, allowing Cuevas to capitalize.
Before halftime, the game paused for several minutes when Cuevas went to ground in the Stratford half, apparently suffering a serious knee injury, and was carried off the field and taken to the hospital.
The half ended 1-1.
Minutes into the second half, Masuk scored after Forizs mishandled the ball.
Stratford players thought he had possession of the ball but a Masuk attacker was on top of Forizs and knocked the loose ball into the net.
Again, Stratford fought back, equalizing after junior Carlos Fidalgo applied pressure to the defense and won the ball and beat a defender and slotted it past the Masuk goalie.
Then, continuing to apply pressure, Stratford scored again, after an Andres Jimenez free-kick found Max Maria who put it past the goalie.
Masuk, however, scored off a defensive error and equalized and then found the game-winner with under ten minutes to play.
Stratford’s next game is Monday against Joel Barlow, at Barlow, at 4 p.m.
Immaculate 3, Bunnell 2
