TRUMBULL - On the seven year anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, Newtown High School wins its first state championship since 1992.
Not only did they win the Class LL title, they won it on a dramatic, last-second, 36-yard touchdown pass.
Jack Street, through the fog and rain, found Riley Ward open down the right sideline and hit his target perfectly.
Then the celebration began.
WOW! Holy crap. Newtown wins the CLASSS LL title 13-7 over Darien I’m the final play Jack Street hits Riley Ward for 36-yard TD #cthsfb

7 years ago in Newtown, CT was an unspeakably awful day. 7 years to the day, kids from that town and school did this. Sports are amazing sometimes. https://t.co/Tko89MRnSj
