Westhill and Norwalk had their offenses in high gear last weekend, putting up a combined 118 points. The Vikings defeated the Ludlowe Falcons 50-27, while the Bears won a shootout in Hamden, 68-57.
Both teams could be considered state tournament sleepers, and have the talent to make some noise while contending this fall after each finished 4-6 last year.
Westhill had a huge week-one performance from Noldylens Metayer, who led the offensive production with three long touchdown passes of 89, 34 and 40 yards. Saquan Kelly ran for three TDs, as the Vikings found the end zone in every quarter.
For Norwalk, the big name is All-State receiver A.J. Hall, but it was Jalen Elliott in the spotlight last week, as Elliott amassed 130 receiving yards and three TDs. Hall, who had 81 yards receiving, had the highlight reel play with a one-handed catch on a touchdown in the second half.
Norwalk had 522 yards of total offense in its win, but Westhill’s D poses a much tougher challenge, and the Vikings collected three interceptions in their win.
