With five minutes remaining in the game, New Haven got on the board, scoring on a well-executed 30-yard pass play.
Fairfield took over, but was unable to penetrate the Steelers defense and turned the ball over on downs.
New Haven marched down the field on the ensuing possession for another score as the clock wound down.

The Fairfield Giants Junior Midgets roll into the playoffs with a 28-0 shutout against a tough Naugatuck team.
The Giants defense put up the first score with a safety in the first quarter, set up by a 65-yard punt, and the defense never let up as it caused three turnovers.
The offense started off slow, but everything began to click in the second quarter.
Head coach Brian Parisi challenged the offense to put up three scores in the second half and they did just that.
Defensive stand outs were Shawn Matthews with an interception and Gabe Reale and Wil Parisi with forced and recovered fumbles.
Jack Price, Ben Kasper, Will Melbourne, Kyle Fetcho, Dylan Mirabile, Ari Proskinitopoulos and Tyler Llewellyn stuffed the Naugatuck offense all day.
Behind outstanding blocking from the offensive line all day, the offense put up almost 300 yards with a 40-yard run by Tyler Llewellyn, a 34-yard touchdown run by Paul Du Toit, and a 40-yard touchdown pass from Sam Keresey  to Wil Parisi.
Bryan Azarian scored with runs of 18 yards and 32 yards.
