H.S. football: Stonington pulls away from Waterford

Waterford - Stonington High School scored the final two touchdowns and went on to beat Waterford 35-21 in an Eastern Connecticut Conference Medium Division football game Friday night.

Quarterback Divante White ran for three touchdowns, including the final score with 4 minutes, 41 seconds left in the game.

Harry Calmar's touchdown run with 7:36 left in the game snapped a 21-21 tie.

Matt Mitchell also had a touchdown run and Jack Riordan followed all five touchdowns with extra points for Stonington (1-2, 1-1).

Seth Hoagland ran for two touchdowns, Bishme Sheppard ran for another and Spencer Hoagland kicked three extra points for Waterford (1-3, 1-2).

In other games:

• Jeremiah Crowley ran 20 times for 171 yards and three touchdowns to pace Montville to its 48-20 win over Plainfield.

Crowley scored on runs of 4, 52 and 11 yards for Montville (2-2). He ran for a state-record 526 yards last week.

Tyler Quidgeon ran for a 33-yard touchdown for Montville and threw a 38-yard touchdown to Buddy Dewaine.

Jon McCray (45 yards) and Andrew Petherick (1 yard) also ran for Montville touchdowns.

• Valley Regional/Old Lyme survived a fourth quarter comeback by Avon to defeat the Falcons 21-18 and remain unbeaten.

Noah Hahn's third touchdown pass of the night, a 60-yarder to Jimmy Murphy with 1:15 left, pulled Avon (2-2) to within three, but Tyler Cheverier recovered the onside kick and the Warriors (3-0) ran the clock out.

Valley led 21-6 at the halftime, then had a pair of TDs called back by penalties in the third quarter that would have broken the game wide open.

The Warriors took a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter when Phil Cohen threw a pair of touchdown passes to Dave Peck (68 and 5 yards). After Hahn's first TD pass of the game made it 14-6, Justin Cheverier's 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter gave Valley some breathing room.
