A Battle Of The Unbeatens

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.

It doesn't matter how many people are visiting, if there is sunlight in the middle of the room, Max will stake his claim and fall asleep right in the middle of it.

Foran vs. Shelton - High School Football

Foran High faced unbeaten Shelton High Thursday night. After the game was over, Shelton was still undefeated after routing the Lions 42-15, and it wasn't even that close. The score was 34-9 at the half, and Shelton basically used the second string in the second half.

Foran High vs. Jonathan Law - High School Volleyball

I shot my first volleyball game of the season last night - the local crosstown rivalry between Foran High and Jonathan Law always brings out a big crowd and lots of emotion. It was a quick match, as Foran took 3 straight games in the best of 5 match.

Diving

Shot some diving Monday at the local high school pool. The lighting was dim, so I really had to push the ISO to get a usable shutter speed. This was shot at Hi.7 which is a little more than ISO 10,000...
