HAMDEN – The naysayers questioned Hamden’s schedule. Sure, the Green Dragons were unbeaten in three outings, but they hadn’t played a high quality team yet.
Those doubters were quieted big-time Friday night as Hamden dominated from the start and knocked off Fairfield Prep, 42-27, in a Southern Connecticut Conference inter-tier football contest. It was the first time the Green Dragons have beaten the Jesuits since 2009.
“Everyone was killing us that we haven’t played anybody and haven’t done anything,” Hamden coach Tom Dyer said. “These kids took it to heart and played a heck of a game tonight. We don’t look at the past, but we’re writing our own story here.”
Hamden (4-0) was the big play team all night as it took advantage of a bunch of missed tackles and turnovers by visiting Fairfield Prep.
It started all with a huge play that set the tone in the first quarter. With their backs to the wall on their own three-yard line after a Fairfield Prep punt, Hamden got on the board just five minutes into the game.
The Green Dragons offensive line opened a huge hole for Camren Kemp (29 carries for 193 yards) and he blasted right through it for a 97-yard touchdown run.
