By equally distributing the workload, St. Joseph made it near to impossible for Berlin High to find the countermeasures necessary to deny the Cadets their second consecutive state championship with a record-breaking 70-18 triumph in the Class M title game at Finn Stadium in Shelton on Saturday.
Coach Joe Della Vecchia’s Hogs (12-1) showcased their ability to throw and run the ball with equal levels of effectiveness against the Redcoats (11-2). In scoring the most points ever in a state final, St. Joseph had 48 snaps from scrimmage: 24 times the Cadets threw the ball and 24 times they went to the ground game. Weaver defeated Darien, 69-26, in the 1999 Class M title game.
