Shelton High coach Jeff Roy and New Canaan coach Lou Marinelli agreed it was one heckuva game, but only one team got to continue their season after the visiting Rams defeated the Gaels 42-34, in a Class LL quarterfinal at Finn Stadium on Tuesday night.
New Canaan (9-2), the No. 8 seed, will play No. 5 Fairfield Prep (10-1) in Sunday’s semifinal. The Jesuits knocked off No. 4 Southington, 28-21. Top-seeded Shelton finished 10-1.
