The Trumbull Eagles Football Team pulled off an incredible upset win vs #1 seeded Southington, 34-25, on Tuesday, November 29th in Southington.

It was a special night for the football program at Trumbull High as it was their first appearance in the playoffs in the last 12 years. This game saw a strong performance by Jonathan Hall who exploded for 232 yards and an astonishing 5 touchdowns. He was really the focal point of the Eagle’s offense and kept them in the game given the back and forth battle.

Coming out of the half, the Eagles saw themselves up by one. Southington responded with a touchdown but the Eagles scored back nearing the end of the 3rd quarter.

In the 4th quarter, the Eagle’s defense stepped up not allowing a single point to secure the win for Trumbull. The #8 seed in these playoffs, Trumbull, will now head to Fairfield to play the #5 seed, Fairfield Prep, on Sunday, December 4th at 12:30 pm.
