The West Haven Seahawk Mighty Mite Team concluded their season on Saturday with a contest against the New Haven Steelers. The Mighty Mite division is a fundamental level made up of mostly 7- and 8-year-olds. Quarterback TJ Nixon led the Seahawk offensive attack and scored a rushing touchdown.
Caden Stanley stripped the ball from a Steeler running back in the second quarter and returned it 60 yards for a score. He also had two quarterback sacks for the Hawk defense. Jey Scanlon, Anthony Iannotti and Trey Plumber also played well for the Seahawks.
