Masuk's aerial attack will ride on the arm of talented quarterback Nick Saccu this season.

STRATFORD, CT — Masuk High’s football team opened the season with a 37-15 win at Bunnell of Stratford on Sept. 10.

This was the team’s first traditional game following last year’s coronavirus-altered 7 on 7 touch football slate, and the first tilt under the direction of new Head Coach Steve Christy.

Quarterback Nick Saccu completed 15 passes for 128 yards and scored touchdowns on 10 and 51 yard runs.

Jake Dellapiano scored on a 60-yard carry and Kyle Beckett and Lukas Shamus added short yardage rushing TDs.

Christy said Mike Epafino was outstanding both in the kicking game and on defense, and that Evan Cronk and Ryan Saccu were standouts with their cover defense.

“This was for Masuk nation. It was for all the players, alums and ex coaches,” Christy said. “I love these seniors. They really bought in.”“It was a good win to start. We have to improve — we have to get better,” Christy said.
