Canton’s Cam Daley scored 4 TDs vs. Stafford/East Windsor.

STAFFORD, Sept. 19 – Cam Daley scored four touchdowns Friday night as the Canton High football team won its second game of the year with a dominating 46-0 victory over Stafford/East Windsor. 

Daley scored a touchdown on the opening kickoff with an 80-yard run and added three more rushing touchdowns of 10, 16 and seven yards. He became the seventh player in school history to score four TDs in a single game. 

Dan Delos led the way for the Warriors, rushing for 156 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. Canton led 27-0 after one quarter and 46-0 at halftime. The Warriors controlled the game, rushing for 254 yards. 

Canton’s defense stood tall. They limited Stafford to 62 yards, recovered two fumbles and had seven tackles for a loss. Shane Toland led the way with six tackles and two for a loss while Daley had five tackles and a fumble recovery. Henry Bonini had four tackles and recovered a fumble. 

The 46-point victory ties the school record for the most lopsided victory. Canton beat Litchfield Junior Republic, 46-0 in 1935. The most recent Canton player with four TDs in a single game was Kyle Mullins against Coventry/Windham Tech in 2012.

Simsbury 40, East Hartford 8: For just the second time in the last five years, Simsbury is off to a 2-0 start following Friday night’s 40-8 win over East Hartford. Sean Penney ran for 85 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. Bryce Swan recovered a fumble in the end zone for another Trojan touchdown. 

It was Simsbury’s 10th straight win over East Hartford, although a Trojan victory in 2006 was ruled a forfeit because Simsbury used an ineligible player. Simsbury’s victories in the last six seasons represents the longest winning streak by either team since the series began in 1910.
