Charlie Solimine, Staff Writer

This past Friday (9/30) the Danbury Hatters and the St. Joe’s Cadets put their undefeated records to the test in Danbury, with both teams maintaining a 3-0 record. Unfortunately for the Hatters, St. Joe’s pulled away with a 24-7 victory where St. Joe’s running back Jordan Riley rushed for 2 touchdowns, completing the efforts for the win.


Danbury’s only score of the game came in the third quarter when quarterback John Bardin threw a double pass to wide receiver Aiden Montalvo, who then threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver, Asher Jones. The hype surrounding the sophomore wide receiver continues as the incredible catch was over the shoulder.
