They saved the best for last.
In what is a candidate for the top high school football game of the year, New Canaan won its third straight state title with a 42-35 win over North Haven in the Class L final Saturday afternoon.
To call it hard-fought would be an understatement.
After North Haven came from behind for the third time with two straight touchdowns to tie the game at 28-28, the Rams sandwiched a pair of 15-play drives around the Indians’ final score.
Here are the scoring highlights from the game, including a postgame interview with New Canaan’s Matt Cognetta and coach Lou Marinelli.
Thanks to Scott Enterprises for another excellent job putting together the video.
Sit back and enjoy.
