DARIEN, Conn. The Darien 5th grade White team sailed to a 20-8 victory over Westport North in its last regular season game in the Fairfield County Football League.
With a record of 5-3, the team now looks forward to continuing the momentum into the playoffs. Darien will have a rematch with Westport North in the opener on Saturday at 8 a.m. at Darien High School.
Dominating line play by Christian Haranzo, Lawrence Story, Quinn Murphy, Keven Gomez, Christian Evans, Conner Fay, Charlie Walsh, Matt Darrah and Will Hauben was again the key to the win.
Offensively, bruising fullback Peter Bredahl powered his way for two touchdowns, and halfback Tyler Herget caught a well-executed screen pass from quarterback Will Rolapp and scampered 35 yards for another touchdown. Strong-legged Fay kicked a point to round out the scoring for White.
Defensively 5 White was lead by linebacker Blake Cellar, who, fighting through a bout of the flu, made tackles from sideline to sideline. Also supporting White defensively was terrific play by linebackers TJ Cornacchia, Bredahl and Gomez, free safety Rolapp and defensive ends Walsh and Herget.
