Trumbull’s dominant defensive line prepares for attack.

Trumbull has improved their record to 4-1 after winning 48-0 against the Stamford Black Knights.

After having back to back home games, Trumbull was able to travel and bring home a win Saturday, October 16th at Boyle Stadium. The Eagles showed off their offensive and defensive skills by completely dominating the Black Knights.

Senior Corbin Smith has continued leading the Eagles offense by scoring three touchdowns. Other touchdowns were scored by senior Justin Delaney and junior Nicholas Tuccinardi. 

The Eagles defense has also been very successful by only allowing one touchdown to be scored in the last three games. They even chipped into the offense by scoring on a safety against Westhill in last week’s game. 

With the season at its halfway mark, Trumbull looks to keep their winning streak alive and secure a playoff spot. The Eagles are currently on a four game win streak after beating the Westhill Vikings and now Stamford. 

“Ever since the Ludlowe game we have not taken a step back,” said senior Captain, Jake Delfino, about his team’s last few wins. “The defense is playing lights out and has scored more touchdowns in three games than our opponents. We  have just been playing our style of football and not taking any opponent lightly! This is going to be a big week for us and we are ready for what’s to come”. 

Although the Eagles have proven their abilities as being one of the top teams in the state, their upcoming games are much more challenging as they are scheduled to play No. 15 Greenwich (LL), No. 6 Ridgefield (LL), and No. 1 St. Joseph (L). All these teams are highly ranked in the CIAC poll but Trumbull is currently ranked at No. 8 in the LL class, ready to compete.
