FAIRFIELD, Conn. The Fairfield Giants Junior Midget team dropped a 20-0 decision to the Danbury Trojans in their homecoming game last weekend at Sullivan Field.
The Giants held Danbury off the board in the first quarter. The defense, led by Henry Purdy, Will Melbourne, Brendan Beiser and Matt King, contained Danbury's explosive attack early. Danbury got on track in the second quarter, and took a lead it would not relinquish.
The Trojans continued to play aggressively throughout the day. Fairfield tried numerous pass plays that normally it would convert. Danbury's defensive backs had the Giants' receivers covered. The Giants will try to even their record at home against the Newington Knights on Sunday, Oct. 9, at 1 p.m.
