Pee Wee’s knock off unbeaten team

The Fairfield Giants Pee Wee team knew that this past week’s contest with New Fairfield was going to be a challenge and so it was as the locals won out, 12-8.
Not only were the Falcons undefeated at 5-0, they had allowed just one touchdown in those five games.
Both teams pride themselves on playing tough, pressure defense, so it was no surprise that neither team was able to generate much offense in the early going.
Fairfield’s Jack King and Philip Pasmeg made several key tackles, with Pasmeg forcing a fumble.
New Fairfield held strong and the Giants were unable to take advantage of the turnover.
The Falcons took over and mounted a 50 yard drive ending with a two-yard blast up the middle for the first score of the game.
The PAT was successful and the Falcons led 8-0 at the half.
The Giants made some halftime adjustments and came out with renewed confidence, forcing another fumble that was recovered by Liam Waldron.
The offense took the field, and behind strong running by quarterback Griffin Donohue, began to threaten.
Donohue hit TJ Walton in stride for a 50-yard touchdown strike.  The PAT was blocked and the Giants were down 8-6.
On the ensuing kickoff, Henry Houghton executed a perfect onside kick, hustled downfield, and alertly recovered the ball for the Giants.
This play proved to be a game changer, as Fairfield took over and never looked back.
Two plays later, Finn Duran, behind a tremendous block by Jarret Toth, scampered 20 yards for the go-ahead score.
Once again, Fairfield’s defense dominated, forcing another turn over on downs.
The Giants were able to run out the clock for the 12-8 victory.
“Defense wins games and ours was great today,” coach Dave Houghton said. “We shut down a very good team which was previously unbeaten.  I’m very proud of the entire team.”
Mitey Mites triumph
The Mitey Mites defeated the Danbury Trojans, 21-0, on  Saturday in a hard-fought defensive battle.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Giants took control when Ronin O’Donnell plunged in the end zone from three yards out for the first of his two scores.
The Giants were in scoring position behind excellent blocking by Ethan Righter, Ryan Ginley, Colin Vigeant, Tyler Palumbo, Jack Martin and Tim Walton.
The strong defensive unit, led by Grady Golier, Jake Neff, Ryan O’Donnell, Joe Delia and John Moore, contained the Trojan offense, limiting them to only two first downs all day.
Matt Passios scored the game’s final touchdown after breaking several tackles behind key blocks by Anthony Faletta, Luke Lesizza, Tom Kramer and Tyler Bauer.
RJ Ihlefeld led all rushers.
The Junior Midgets defeated the Hartford Hurricanes, 14-0, the Junior Pee Wee 1 team lost 7-0 to the Waterbury Patriots, and the Junior Pww Wee 2 team lost to the West Haven Seahawks, 27-0.
