Trinity Catholic boots Warde on late field goal, improves to 3-0

The year 2013 was one to forget for the Trinity Catholic Crusaders.

With a new head coach, Donny Panapada taking over a young team, Trinity went an unsightly 0-13 just one season after going 8-3 and reaching the CIAC Class S quarterfinals.

In 2014, Panapada and the Crusaders have bounced back in a big way.

On Saturday at Alumni Field in Stamford, the Crusaders picked up their third straight win to start the season when senior Sam Ruzzi booted a 22-yard field goal with 1.1 seconds remaining, giving Trinity a 17-14 decision over Fairfield-Warde.

Trinity is now one of just four FCIAC teams to go unbeaten through their first three games, and although the Crusaders have some of the league’s traditional powerhouses on their schedule, they could be looking at a return trip to the state playoffs this season.
