Pequot moves back to
two division format
AVON, May 26, 2014 -- With Housatonic dropping its varsity program due to a low number of players, the Pequot Conference has modified its schedule and divisions. In 2013, the Pequot moved to a three division format with seven teams in each division (West, North, South). With 20 varsity teams, the league is moving back to its two division format (Uncas and Sassacus) that the Pequot used from 1993 to 2012. Canton moves back into the Uncas Division.
CANTON, January 1 – Canton had five players named to the All-Pequot Western Division All-Star team in balloting by the league coaches. Offensive lineman Pierre Walsh, utility player Sebby Gumbs, punter Eric Scott, DB Cam Daley and defensive lineman Shane Toland were recognized. It’s the second year in a row that Daley and Gumbs have earned All-Pequot honors.
Daley made big plays on both sides of the ball. Defensively, he led the Warriors with 106 tackles and had five interceptions. Offensively, he chipped in where he could. Gumbs is one of Canton’s most explosive players who can be deployed in a variety of positions.
Walsh was one of Canton’s most consistent linemen at left tackle. He helped the Warriors score a school-record 313 points this season. Toland had an outstanding season and was the team’s leading tackler on the defensive line with 60 stops and 1½ sacks.
Scott was Canton’s QB but he averaged 32.4 yards a kick as a punter.
GRANBY, Nov. 27 -- Led by sophomore Dominic Pagano, who ran for a game-high 143 yards and scored three touchdowns, the Bears (6-5, 4-2 West) rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat Canton and clinch its first-ever winning season and capture the ceremonial red Old Milk Jug on a wet and windy Thanksgiving Eve. Down by two, the Warriors (7-4, 4-2 West) had a first down on the Granby 27-yard line with 1:12 remaining. But the drive imploded. A fumble, two dropped passes and an overthrown pass ended the series, the threat to score and the game.
