The Shelton High football team stayed with sixth-ranked Cheshire for 40-plus minutes Friday night before Shelton's inexperience shone through in a 28-10 Ram win before about 2,100 fans at Cheshire’s Alumni Field on Friday night.
“We battled them. I am proud of our kids. We have a very young team,” said Shelton coach Jeff Roy, whose team graduated 28 seniors last year. “I thought they came out and played toe-to-toe. We gave them everything they could handle.”
