Jordan Vazzano threw for four touchdowns, two to Lars Pedersen, who also returned the second half kickoff for a score, and the St. Joseph High football team defeated Notre Dame of West Haven 47-28 in the SCC/FCIAC Challenge that opened the season for both teams at the Dalling Complex in Trumbull on Sept. 14.
"We weren't stopping them, and thought we could move the ball," Cadet coach Joe Della Vecchia said. "I don't think we played crisp at all. Notre Dame is very physical, not just on the line, but the backs as well. We didn't play well on defense and had struggle tackling. That kid (Cameron Tucker) is a good runner."
