No. 15 Berlin dominates undermanned Avon

Dan Quick (20) had a team-high 57 yards in a 45-0 loss to Berlin on Saturday.

AVON, October 6 – Alex Halkias ran for a pair of touchdowns and a team-leading 60 yards to lead the undefeated Berlin High football team to a 45-0 win over undermanned Avon in a CCC Division III East contest Saturday afternoon.

The Falcons were missing Division I prospect Henry Schrecengost, who turned an ankle late in last week’s loss to Northwest Catholic in Avon. Schrecengost, the 6-foot-6, 290 pounder –like most starters for the Falcons — plays on both sides of the ball. Dan Quick led Avon with 57 yards rushing on 20 carries.

Berlin quarterback Kevin Dunn completed 7-of-9 passes for 174 yards and two touchdown passes. Berlin, ranked No. 15 in the latest state sportswriters top 10 football poll, beat Avon for the third time in four games since the Falcons joined the Central Connecticut Conference in 2015.

Avon has a bye next week and they return to action with another challenging contest when they host No. 11 Bloomfield (5-0) on Saturday, October 20 at 1 p.m.
