No rematch for UConn commits
Southington won its opener 48-6 over Conard as Rose, who came into the game with 180 yards rushing, ran eight times for 194 yards including scoring runs of 58, 56, 3 and 55. He also threw his 39th touchdown pass of the season. It was his 87th career touchdown pass which ranks fourth in Connecticut high school football history even though Rose is in just his second season as the starting quarterback. He also needs one more TD pass to join former Woodland star Tanner Kingsley with two seasons with at least 40 touchdown passes.
Dixon returned a punt 85 yards and threw an 83-yard touchdown pass as Glastonbury held a 20-7 lead heading into the fourth quarter but Newtown scored a pair of touchdowns to post the 21-20 victory.
Next up for Southington is a semifinal on Monday against Darien at Boyle Stadium in Stamford at 6:30 p.m.
