This past Sunday, the Falcons "C" squad faced the Panthers of South Windsor. The first quarter began with the Falcons on defense, shutting down South Windsor's offense up the middle, off-tackle and outside by a strong Falcon defense. The Falcons offensive line pushed well all day to give the running backs opportunities to move the ball down field.
A key 15 yard pass from quarterback Derek Grant to tight end Collin Sheehy got the Falcons inside the 10-yard line. Grant kept it on a sneak up the middle to get the Falcons on the board. Anthony Santangelo scored the extra point to make it a 7-0 lead. Again, with a strong defense shutting down the Panthers, the Falcons offense wasted no time getting back in the end-zone.
A 54-yard TD score, by Santangelo, got the Falcons their second score early in the second quarter, with full back Blake Couchesne taking it up the middle for the extra point, giving the Falcons a 14-0 lead at the half. The second half was a defensive battle on both sides, but the Falcons denied the Panthers from getting in the end-zone, which ended the game 14-0. Great team effort by the entire "C" squad, both offensively and defensively.
