SOUTHINGTON - The Jacob Drena to Jacob Flynn has proven to be a dangerous combination for opposing defense to try to stop.

It was no different Friday night.

Drena connected with Flynn on two touchdown passes -  45 and 32 yards - as the Southington football team beat Hall 37-7.

Will Downes caught another, while Tanner LaRosa and Dillon Kohl each ran to a touchdown as well to help the Blue Knights improve to 4-0 on the season, setting up an important and big showdown against New Britain (4-0) next week.

Three of Southington’s five touchdowns came after halftime. LaRosa’s 15-yard and two Flynn’s came in the third quarter to make up for a slow first half that ended with the Blue Knights holding just a 14-7 lead. Kicker Evan Johanns also kicked a 47-yard field goal for Southington.

The Warriors scored first on a 4-yard run from Nolan Tibball after they halted the Blue Knights on their first possession at the Hall 33-yard line.

Drena tied the game at 7-7 when he found Downes from 19 yards out with Kohl giving Southington the lead for good with 2-yard scamper.
