McDougall Stadium was rocking on October 1st as the Eagles played their first home game of the season. This Friday night game was highly anticipated by everyone but there were some doubts since the Eagles were facing the undefeated Shelton High Gaels.

Just two minutes into the game, though, Trumbull struck with the game’s first touchdown. Trumbull would extend the lead and was up 20-0 by halftime.  

Throughout the entire game, Shelton had a difficult time tackling senior Corbin Smith, allowing him to score four touchdowns. Smith was easily the best player of Friday night’s game with his incredible performance. Another touchdown in the game was scored by junior Ben Carley. Junior quarterback Hunter Agosti went 20-28 for 354 yards, throwing three touchdown passes.

Slowing Shelton’s offense down after they ran 332 yards in a 35-14 win against No. 4 Greenwich last week was key. Trumbull’s defense with seniors Cooper Dayton, Jake Peterson, Dylan Moran, and others, exceeded expectations for this matchup.

A big win like this definitely gets everyone on the team fired up. The Eagles have a lot of potential and this is only the start. This week, Trumbull is going into week four with a 2-1 record, to play Westhill this Saturday at noon.
