Valley Regional vs. Ansonia - CIAC Class S Large Finals

Saturday was a really good day. I shot back to back state championship games, and both games went right down to the end. In game one, Valley Regional squared off against Ansonia High for the Class S-Large Trophy. Valley had never won a state title, and Ansonia was going for their 20th.

Ansonia's Tajik Bagley ran around left end for the first score of the game>
