Game Most Valuable Player Jake Roberts threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another as the No. 4 ranked Shelton Gaels rolled past Derby, 62-6, before about 600 Thursday in the annual Thanksgiving Day clash between the two schools at Finn Stadium.
The Gaels finish their regular season with a 10-0 mark, and unofficially secured the top seed and a home game for Tuesday’s CIAC Class LL quarterfinals. Shelton, playing in the postseason for the fifth-straight season, is expected to host No. 8 seed New Canaan (8-2) in a 6:30 p.m. start at Finn.
