Football: Eagles fall to Rams
The Trumbull High football team went on the road Friday night and ran into a buzzsaw disguised as the New Canaan Rams, as coach Lou Marinelli’s won the 333th game of his career with a 61-14 victory at Dunning Field.
The Rams (2-1) and Eagles (1-2) were tied at 7-7 late in the first quarter when quarterback Drew Pyne connected with wide receiver Justin Greco for a 28-yard touchdown to put New Canaan ahead.
That started a run of 48 unanswered points as New Canaan.

Peter Schmitz led the way with six catches for 120 yards
The Rams (2-1) racked up 453 yards of total offense, with Pyne completing 16-of-22 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns — two each to Greco and Quintin O’Connell.
Senior running back Owen Shin had 134 all-purpose yards, rushing nine times for 51 yards and catching five passes for 83 yards.
Greco had three catches for 70 yards and TDs of 28 and 34 yards; while O’Connell had four catches for 47 yards and TDs of 16 and six yards. J.R. Moore had four carries for 63 yards and a touchdown.
