Fairfield Prep comes back, beats Southington
SOUTHINGTON — Sam Roberto’s 30-yard touchdown reception proved the difference as fifth-seeded Fairfield Prep defeated fourth-seeded Southington 28-21 Tuesday night at Fontana Field in the CIAC Class LL football quarterfinals.
The Jesuits (10-1) will host eighth-seeded New Canaan (9-2) on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at Fairfield University’s Rafferty Stadium.
Doug Harrison’s 23-yard punt return set up Roberto’s score. Luke Hopkins’ interception cut short the next drive for the Blue Knights (10-1).
After Billy Carr deflected a Jesuits punt, Southington drove inside the Prep 2 with under two minutes left, but the Jesuits stopped Tanner LaRosa on fourth-and-1 to take back the ball.
