Football Giants weekly roundup

The Fairfield Giant’s Mitey Mites Juniors played host to the Milford Eagles last Sunday morning at Sullivan Field and capped week six with a 13-7 loss.
The first half was a back-and-forth defensive battle and scoreless until the final moments, when the Eagles broke an 80-yard sweep for the touchdown.
The Giants answered back opening the second half with a key 30-yard run by Sean O’Neil, which set up a Rogan Kane touchdown and a Tyler Bartlett extra point bringing the game to even at 7-7 where it remained for most of the second half.
Fullback Charley Moore carried the ball for additional key yardage, but the game remained a defensive battle until Milford staged its second power sweep for the game-winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Defensive efforts were led by Joe Macri, Mathew Mitchell and Parker Pasmeg.
The Giant’s are 2-3-1 heading into Homecoming week seven, as the Giant’s host the Stratford Redskins at 4 p.m.
