In an emphatic statement that left no doubt about who was the No. 1 team in the state, Christian Trifone returned an interception for a touchdown on the opening play and the Darien High School football team rolled to an easy 39-7 win over Shelton in the Class LL championship game.
On 12-12, the Blue Wave came through with their 12th victory and first state title since 1996. They were unanimously voted the top team in Connecticut in both the writers’ and coaches’ polls.
Here are the scoring highlights from the game.
Thanks to Scott Enterprises for another excellent job putting together the video.
