SOUTHBURY, CT — Last week it was six different Panthers scoring touchdowns. Masuk High’s football team managed to one up itself as seven players scored in a 46-12 victory at Pomperaug on Friday night.
Jason Champagne recorded his 19th touchdown of the season when he carried the ball into the end zone to get things started. Kyle Beckett rushed for another TD.
Quarterback Dylan Jackson tossed a trio of touchdown passes, connecting with Rob Klein, Deven LaRoche and Shane Walker. Gavin Walker had a rushing touchdown for the final score of the opening half, as Masuk took a commanding 40-0 lead into the break.
Jackson completed 18 of 23 passed in the first half for 240 yards and three touchdowns.
Shane Walker had four receptions for 39 yards. Ryan Fedeli had eight catches for 80 yards. Champagne had three catches for 67 and carried seven times for 42 yards. Klein caught two passes for 23 yards.
Left tackle Matt Scholz joined the scoring party with a second-half rush into the end zone.
“Great team effort. When everybody eats they all stay hungry,” Masuk Coach Steve Christy said of the scoring coming from throughout the lineup.
Christy’s Panthers will look to feast again next week when they visit Brookfield for a Friday, Nov. 11, contest at 7 p.m.
Speaking of feasts, then comes the Thanksgiving Eve clash with Newtown, when the Panthers return home Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 6 p.m.
