It's not every day that you have a 62-44 score at any level, especially high school. Derby jumped out to a 28-12 lead at the end of the first quarter, and outlasted Seymour in a slugfest that had both defensive units gasping for air. Derby improved to 6-1 on the season, and Seymour fell to 4-3.
Derby's Richard Bartone stretches for one of his 3 touchdowns. Bartone rushed for 123 yards on 23 carries.
Seymour's Joseph Salemme scored 2 touchdowns Friday night.
Derby QB Michael Kreiger threw for 308 yards.

Had the pleasure of shooting the Shatterproof event this past weekend in Stamford. Shatterproof partners with Over the Edge to host events where participants rapel down buildings for charity.
Brian is a long-time climber, and personally helped every participant get ready to rapel down the building.
Near the end of the day, I was able to squuze off a few frames of Scott Hickling, the Assistant Director of Special Events at Shatterproof.

With identical 5-0 records going into Friday night, Newtown High faced Ansonia High in a battle of unbeatens. There was even more at stake, as Ansonia was riding a 48-game winning streak into the game, one shy of the state record.
Fifth-ranked Newtown did what so many others before it couldn't do, beating No. 4 Ansonia 14-8 before a crowd of 3,000 at Blue and Gold Stadium. The Chargers, in the process, fell one victory short of tying Cheshire's state record 49-game win streak.
Newtown's Jared Pearson scores in the first quarter to give Newtown a 7-0 lead.
Ansonia's Tyler Bailey delivers a stiff arm
The speed of Newtown's defense shut down Ansonia all night.
