Trumbull Overpowers Staples 14-0 to Win FCIAC Title

Trumbull tonight handed Staples its first loss in 20 games, overpowering the Wreckers 14-0 in the FCIAC championship game at Boyle Stadium in Stamford.

No. 1-ranked Staples, seeking its second FCIAC title in three years, entered the game 9-0 on the season while Trumbull was 8-1. Staples had defeated Trumbull 13-0 on Oct. 7.

Playing in crisp, cool weather with the temperature in the 30s, the Wreckers seemed unable to show the power displayed in earlier season games. Quarterback D. J. Stefkovich had four passes intercepted after suffering an ankle injury.

Stefkovich had to be helped off the field in the closing minutes of the game after remaining motionless on the field following a play. It turned out to be the ankle injury which he had suffered earlier.
