St. Joseph keeps moving-up in classifications, but the outcome remains the same. Saturday, the Cadets won their third straight Connecticut high school football state championship beating two-time defending champ Hand 17-13 to capture the state’s Class L title. In 2017, St. Joseph won the Class S title, followed by the Class M title last year.

Jaden Shirden had a huge game with 179 yards rushing on 32 carries.

The Cadets have now won 23 straight. Hand’s 36-game win streak comes to a close.

In Class M, Weston won its first state title with a 27-6 win over Killingly.

Sheehan won its first state title in 34 years with a 64-33 win over Bloomfield for the Class S state championship. Coming into the game, Bloomfield’s defense had only allowed 29 points in its twelve games.
