CT State Finals

11/14: The 6th Grade Indians had to travel to Brian McMahon High School in Norwalk to face the undefeated CVL Champion Bridgeport Chargers for the State Championship. The rainy, gloomy conditions were a dark omen of things to come as the Chargers won the coin toss and deferred their choice to the second half. The Indians took the kickoff and moved to midfield before turning the ball over with a punt. The Chargers took over and repeatedly pounded the ball up the middle until they were in the end zone with a touchdown. Bridgeport's kicker successfully made the PAT kick to make the score 8-0.

North Haven took the next kick and could not make a first down. Mike Montano's punt was then blocked, and the Chargers were set up with a short field. After making a first down, the second quarter began and the Chargers fumbled it and North Haven recovered. But the Indians could not move the ball, however, as their game plan was to use their outside speed to gain yardage. But Bridgeport's linebackers were daring them to pass while they were cheating up on the line. When the play was headed to the outside, the line backers broke through and cut things off before they could get to the outside. A defensive struggle ensued, and neither team could score as the Chargers took an 8-0 lead into halftime.

Bridgeport took the second half kickoff and ate up most of the 3rd quarter with a 70 yard drive that culminated with a short touchdown run to increase their lead to 14-0. Neither team would come close to scoring again until the end as they each move the ball but could not crack the other's end zone. After forcing the Chargers to punt for the first time late in the game, North Haven was given the gift of a short field when a 7 yard punt was downed at Bridgeport's 30 yard line. Connor Suraci gained some yards on the ground and completed a pass to Nick Ponzio to get the ball in close, but time ran out after several passes into the end zone fell incomplete. With the loss, North Haven's Youth Football season now comes to a close. The 6th grade Indians finish their season with a 10-1 record while Bridgeport improves to 12-0 and will advance to the North East Regionals next Saturday.

CT Semi-Finals

11/8: The 6th Grade Indians traveled to Falcon Field in Meriden to take on the Meriden Raiders who were the 6th Grade Champions of the MidConn Youth Football League. In dominating fashion, the Indians whipped the Raiders with their suffocating defense, the pounding up the middle runs by Nick Ponzio and Mike Montano and the outside speed of Emadi Okwuosa, Conner Suraci and Mike McKenna. Meriden could only make 1 first down in the first half and only a handful in the whole game. Only twice did they make it across midfield in the game. Despite their lack of success at it, the Raiders tried all game to run the ball up the middle, and failed. When they finally changed their approach and went to the outside, the quick Indian linebackers beat them to the corner almost every time.

North Haven won the toss and deferred their choice to the second half. Meriden wanted the ball, so the Indians kicked off. The Raiders receiver picked up Mike Montano's bounding kick and took off through the middle for a 65 yard touchdown. The Raiders added the 2 point PAT kick to open a quick 8-0 lead. Not to be outdone, Nick Ponzio took the next kickoff for North Haven and smashed his way through tacklers and busted his way down to the 1 yard line. On the next play, Ponzio finished his mission when he broke into the endzone for a touchdown. Montano added the 2 point PAT kick to tie the score at 8. The Raiders couldn't make a first down on their first possesion so they had to punt. Jeremy Imperati blocked the kick and Ponzio picked it up and rumbled 35 yards into the end zone for a touchdown. Montano added another 2 point kick and the Indians were in front to stay at 16-8.

Meriden's next possession ended when they went for a 4th and 4 from their own 42 yard line and thrown for a loss. A couple plays later, Emadi Okwuosa took a direct snap and went around the left side for a 24 yard run down to the 1 yard line. Montano slammed his way through the middle for the touchdown and then hit his third straight 2-point kick for a commanding 24-8 lead. Another failed Raider drive gave North Haven the ball once again before the half. Conner Suraci broke off a long 50+ yard touchdown run and the Indians were rolling into halftime with a 30-8 lead.

North Haven took the second half kickoff and moved across midfield. Once they did, the ball spent the rest of second half in the Raiders end until the last play of the game. Neither team could score in the half, though North Haven made it inside the Raider's 10 twice before turning the ball over on downs. The two teams kept turning the ball back over to each other on downs as the time ticked away. On the last play of the game, one of the Raiders broke lose for a 50+ yard touchdown to close out the scoring at 30-14.

With the win, North Haven improved their undefeated record to 10-0 and will travel to Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk this Saturday at 3pm to take on the CVL Champion Bridgeport Chargers to compete for the CT State Championship.


11/1: North Haven's 6th graders dominated a previously unbeaten Madison Bengal squad to win the Shoreline Youth Football Conference Championship, improve their own unbeaten record to 9-0, and advance to next week's State Championship games in Meriden. The Indians won the toss and elected to receive, but the Bengals recovered an onside kick at midfield in what was the only thing that went right for them all day. From there they moved backwards 14 yards before giving the ball back with a 6 yard punt. North Haven used the short field to their advantage when Emadi Okwuosa scored a 21 yard TD around the left side and Mike Montano added the 2 point PAT for an 8-0 lead. The rest of the half was played in Madison's end as each team kept turning it back over to the other on downs. Madison moved into North Haven territory for the only time after taking the second half kick, but turned it over on downs. On the next play, Montano shot through a hole in the middle and took off on a 58 yard romp for a TD and a 14-0 lead. After another stalled Bengal drive in their own end, Conor Suraci had three nice runs while adding a 3rd touchdown to make the final 20-0. 11/1: North Haven's 8th Graders lost to Guilford 30-6 in their Championship game today in Guilford. Things looked good early as North Haven took the opening kick and moved into Guilford's side of the field, but ultimately were forced to punt. On the next play, Guilford's Andrew Meoli took to the near sideline and was gone for a 75 yard touchdown. The kick that followed made it 8-0. In the second quarter, North Haven botched a punt and gave Guilford the ball in close. A couple of plays later KC Horton ran in a 10 yard TD around the right side to build up a 14-0 halftime lead. Guilford's first drive in the second half stalled, and their punt that followed was blocked. Micahel Siwek picked it up for North Haven and ran it back 42 yards for a TD to cut the lead to 14-6. Meoli would add a 50 yard TD run shortly after getting the ball back to open a 22-6 lead after the PAT kick. For good measure, Meoli scored on a 42 yard run on 4th and 8 in the 4th quarter to make the final 30-6. 11/1: North Haven's 5th Graders lost a heartbreaker in their Championship game in Guilford 13-12 to East Haven. The Indians won the toss, took the opening kick and went right down and scored as Bowen Brennan was taking snaps and directing the offense with power runs up the middle and Tommy Dodge around the ends. Brennan drove through the middle for a 1 yard touchdown. Tommy Dodge connected with Carson Tebbetts with a pass for an apparent extra point which was negated by a penalty. The second attempt failed so the score was 6-0. The Easties answered back in the second, capitalizing on a Dodge fumble to score a touchdown on a 7 yard pass to tie the score at 6 at the half. The game stayed tied until the last play of the third when East Haven pulled a double reverse and #27 took off for a 40 yard touchdown. A pass completion netted the extra point that turned out to be the difference in the game, putting the Easties up 13-6. Late in fourth, Tommy Dodge completed a pair of passes to Micahel Gagliardi to help North Haven get down close as time was running out. With 12 seconds left, Dodge rolled out and then threw a 7 yard TD to Brennan, but his run for an extra point that also went to the left side was stopped and East Haven won this game 13-12.

Playoffs - Week 1

10/25: North Haven's 8th graders defeated #1 seed Madison 18-0 at the Surf Cub to advance to next week's SYFC Championship game against Guilford. The Indian defense, led by Dominic Valentino, Michael Millard Michael Siwek dominated the Tigers allowing only a few first downs and also came up with a pair of turnovers. The game was played almost entirely in Madison's end as the Tiger offense could not crack the 50. North Haven took the opening kick in the 3rd quarter and scored a few plays later on Christian Black's 50 yard touchdown down the left sideline. This score held up until midway through the fourth quarter when the Tigers tried to convert a 4th down from their own 45 but came up short. The Indians went right down scored again on Black's 2nd TD from 7 yards out to go up 12-0. Another turnover on downs in the Tigers end provided a short field for Ethan Suraci to score from 7 yards out to close out the scoring. 10/25: North Haven's 6th Graders cruised into the SYFC Championship with a 30-6 win over Clinton. The Indians' swarming defense held Clinton without a first down until there was less than a minute left in the game, while four different players scored touchdowns. After a first quarter where both teams kept turning the ball over on downs at midfield, The Indians finally got going with nice runs by Patrick McKenna and Paul Brockamer to help them move in close before Jeremy Imperati bowled in for a touchdown and a 6-0 lead. After Mike Montano's kickoff pinned Clinton deep in their own end, and the Husky's could only move backwards, their punt was then blocked by Davey Mikos to set up the Indian's on the 2 yard line. Mark Montano carried the ball in for the last 2 yards and then also kicked the 2 point conversion to make it 14-0. After a Husky fumble with under a minute in the half, North Haven threw a pass that was intercepted and returned to their 15. On the first play, Clinton scored on a broken play when their coach called time out and the North Haven kids quit on the play. Without an indication of a whistle, the Husky runner picked up the ball off the ground and continued into the end zone for a touchdown to make it 14-6. Emadi Okwuosa scored a short third quarter touchdown, Nick Ponzio ran one in from 49 yards out in the fourth and Mike Montano made both kicks to make the final 30-6.

Week 8

Congratulations to North Haven's 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th Graders for qualifying for the SYFC Championship Playoffs!
10/20: If you missed the first half of the game, don't feel bad - nothing happened. Neither 8th Grade team could mount any sort of drive, and neither came close to scoring. North Haven kicked off to Branford to start the second half. After stopping the Hornets cold and forcing a punt, the Indians moved across midfield and came up against 4th down. Deciding to go for it, Ethan Suraci took a direct snap and broke through the right side and went 40 yards before fumbling the ball forward from the 2 into the endzone. Michael Siwek recovered for a touchdown and then Patrick Mikos lined a 2 point conversion kick through the bottom left corner of the uprights for an 8-0 North Haven lead. 10/20: Branford took the next kick and also scored following a long pass from TJ Linta to Vic Raffone down the far sideline, a facemask penalty and some short runs before Raffone out leaped his defenders to haul in a short TD pass from Linta. Branford's trick play while lined up for a kick was stuffed, so the score was 8-6. North Haven's next drive moved across midfield and when it got to be 4th and 4, they again eschewed the punt, and this time Suraci went breaking through tackles all the way for a 48-yard touchdown run. The kick was no good, so the score was 14-6 at the end of the 3rd quarter. 10/20: Starting the 4th quarter, John Tondalo's kick sailed over the first row of Hornets and rolled untouched along the far sideline, before the Indians covered it up to retain possession. North Haven then pounded the ball down, alternating runs by Christian Black and Suraci before Black went spinning across the goal line for a touchdown. A fumble occurred as Black crossed the plain, which was again recovered by Michael Siwek, but the ball was already ruled across. Patrick Mikos kicked another PAT to put North Haven up 22-6, which ended up being the final score. With the win, North haven improved their record to 5-3 and claimed the 4th and final spot in this year's 8th grade SYFC Championship playoffs.
10/18: The 5th Grade Indians lost thier first game of the year in a hard fought battle with the Madison Tigers. This game was played on the turf at Daniel Hand High School in a steady rain and 30+ mile per hour winds. For the most part, neither team came close to scoring for most of the game because of the conditions and the tenacious D on both sides. But the Tigers had one scoring drive, and it came at the start of the second half. And that one touchdown was the only score in a 6-0 game. Pictured above is Tommy Dodge, struggling to gain a yard.

10/14: North Haven's 8th graders scored on their second drive in the first quarter when Evan Manameit fired a 40+ yard touchdown pass to Michael Halloran. The PAT kick was blocked so their lead stood at 6-0. Cheshire spent most of the second quarter trying to score as they moved into the red zone and then turned the ball over on downs twice. North Haven punted it back twice, but on their third try, the Rams finally scored on a short pass to tie the game and then added the 2 point kick to take an 8-6 lead into halftime. The Indians took the second half kickoff and moved down to the Rams' 5 yard line with some impressive runs by Ethan Suraci and Christian Black, but then turned the ball over on downs. On Cheshire's first play from scrimmage, they fumbled it away and the Indians recovered. Suraci took the first snap and punched it in through the right side from 10 yards out and then Patrick Mikos drained the 2 point kick through the uprights to put North Haven up 14-8. In the fourth quarter when Cheshire was driving, Freddy Sanchez out leaped the Ram's receiver and intercepted a pass at the 15 yard line. North Haven then repeatedly called on Suraci to make first downs and eat up the clock. The first of which came when it was 3rd and 10 from the 15 and the Rams were looking for a pass. Suraci took a direct snap and busted through the left side for an 11 yard gain. A 75 yard Indian drive ate up most of the 4th quarter before a fumble gave the Rams the ball back with just over 4 minutes to go, but 90 yards of field remained ahead of a potential tying score. The Rams passed their way out near midfield before turning the ball over on downs, and North Haven basically ran out the clock and won this game 14-8.

Robert Ralston and Mike Montano had 2nd quarter TD runs and the Indians had a 19-0 lead. Amity scored on a long run to make it 19-7 at the half, but North Haven opened things up in the 3rd when Conner Suraci had a nice run for a TD and Mike Montano kicked the 2 point PAT. Shortly thereafter, Tony Miscio carried one in and the Indians were up 33-7. Amity added a late TD to close out the scoring.

10/11: Jake Tantorski took took a first quarter snap and zig sagged through traffic for a 24 yard TD and the 5th grader Indians went up 6-0 on Branford. Tommy Dodge scored a pair of second quarter TDs, the first on a 58 yard punt return around the right and down the far sideline, and the second on a 23 yard TD run through the left side. Bown Brennan ran in an extra point and Dodge threw a pass to Vincent Anastasio for another to open a 20-0 halftime lead. North Haven took the second half kickoff and moved down to the Hornet goal line behind the runs of Kyle Melillo, Bowan Brennan and Jack Steinman. Melillo had a 4-yard run for the touchdown, which upped the lead to 26-0. Branford put together a nice drive and scored a touchdown in the 3rd to cap the scoring at 26-6. The win improved the 5th graders record to 6-0.

In the third quarter, Black scored his second touchdown with a 15 yard run (above) to increase the Indian lead to 25-0. North Branford scored a late touchdown with a long pass down right sideline to close out the scoring at 25-6. 10/4: The 7th grade Clinton team scored first after taking the opening kickoff and driving down to score and then added the 2-point PAT to open an 8-0 lead. JB Boggs took the kickoff that followed all the way back for a TD, but the PAT was blocked so North Haven was down 8-6. After stopping Clinton's next drive, the Indians drove down and scored when Boggs passed to Thomas Gallagher for a short TD and then Johntavious Jones ran in an extra point on a fake kick to give the Indians a 13-8 lead. But Clinton would go on to score a pair of TDs to take a 22-13 lead into the 4th quarter before Jones had an amazing 91 yard TD run in the pouring rain to make the final 22-19. 10/4: The 6th grade Indians built up a 20-0 lead through 3 quarters before Mike Montano broke through the line and ran for a long TD to increase that lead to 26-0. Cheshire quickly scored a long touchdown to make it 26-6, but then Conner Suraci ran the kickoff back for a North Haven touchdown and Montano kicked the 2 point PAT to make the score 34-6. #21 for Cheshire scored his second long TD shortly thereafter to make the final score 34-12.

9/30: The 8th grade Indians played their hearts out in a thriller of a game tonight versus Madison at Vanacore Field. The Tigers won the toss and elected to receive. Madison's strong opening drive, kept mostly on the ground, ended when Jack Bertolini carried it around the left side for a touchdown. A line drive PAT squeaked through the bottom left corner of the uprights to put the Tigers up 8-0.

9/30: The score remained tied for the rest of the first half as neither side could mount any sort of drive as each team's defense flexed their muscle and punts went flying. North Haven received the second half kickoff and went right down and scored as Ethan Suraci and Christian Black each had big runs. Suraci ultimately weaved his way across the goal line to complete the drive with a touchdown. The PAT kick was blocked, so Madison had an 8-6 lead.

9/30: Back and forth, up and down the field, each team moved the ball but could not score. North Haven stopped Madison's last drive and took over on downs just outside their own 20 with a little over 2 minutes to go. A nice Indians drive moved across midfield before an interception was returned the other way for a Tiger touchdown which made the final score 14-6.
