Shelton 39 - Derby 0
Shelton High Coach Joe Benanto and his captains receive the
Rotary Club trophy from past Rotary President Jack Walsh following their
dominating win over Derby.
The turkey tasted a little bit better in Shelton on
Thanksgiving Day 2001,
as the Shelton High team completed another brilliant season with a 39-0
victory over Derby at Ryan Field. A scrappy Derby team held Shelton
intact for a quarter as the teams finished the first stanza tied at 0-0.
However, the roof caved in on Derby in the second quarter as Shelton found
the end zone four times on the way to a 27-0 half time lead and coasted to
the 39-0 win.
