Pingree, who came in to run the offense after starter Mark Piccirillo restrained a hamstring on the Gaels’ opening series, scored twice and Jason Thompson also had two touchdowns to give Shelton a 28-7 lead at the half.

Wilbur Cross rallied back within 28-19, before Shelton tacked on the insurance score.
