Play will resume today at 4 p.m.

Quarterback Mark Piccirillo led the charge for coach Jeff Roy's Gaels, rushing for three touchdowns and throwing two more. The junior signal-caller carried 12 times for 134 yards in the first half, scoring on runs of 13, 51 and nine yards. He also completed 4-of-6 passes for 83 yards — including a 29-yard strike to Kyle Drost and a 31-yarder to Jason Thompson.

Thompson added 11 carries for 138 yards and one touchdown, a five-yard first-quarter scamper. Chris Pawlowski intercepted a pass from Eagle quarterback Nick Roberts, returning it 37 yards for a touchdown push Shelton's halftime margin to 49-0.

Ed Deptula and Troy Vasilescu also picked off passes for Shelton.
