The Blue Jays had built a first half lead of 17-7 on Friday night after a pair of Jeremy Fitzpatrick one-yard touchdown runs, but a power outage at the field forced the second half to be completed on Saturday morning.

When play resumed, Jackson-Milton stretched its advantage to 19-7 on a safety.

Southington rallied with a third quarter touchdown on a Dillon Nezbith four-yard touchdown run. That cut the Wildcats deficit to six points at 19-13.

Southington took the lead for good on Justin Len’s second touchdown reception of the game. That score came late in the fourth quarter. The two-point conversion was good and Southington held a 21-19 advantage.

Jackson-Milton had one last chance late but Southington was able to stop the Blue Jays on the one-yard line to earn the victory.
