It didn’t quite pack the punch of Week 2’s Friday bash, but crazy did happen in Week 3 Friday, just not as much of it.
The most notable performances came in Eastern Connecticut and in the NVL. Montville’s Jeremiah Crowley ran for 526 yards in a 49-37 victory over Stonington, knocking former Ansonia back Arkeel Newsome off his throne as the state’s single-game rushing leader. And he did it on a bum knee.
Over in the NVL, Seymour was routing Wolcott. Then it wasn’t. The Eagles rallied from 34-6 down to defeat the Wildcats 48-41. Vincent Gambinio’s 21-yard touchdown pass to Jason Pelletier won it with 11 seconds remaining won it.
Still more to come. Games abound this Saturday, including a few big ones in the FCIAC.
