TRUMBULL - Bloomfield’s hopes of repeating as Class S football champions were spoiled Saturday at Trumbull High School.

After not allowing more than seven points in a game all season and winning seven games by shutout, the third-seeded Warhawks’ defense fell victim to an offensive onslaught from fourth-seed Sheehan, which dropped the game’s final 36 points on its way to a convincing 64-33 rout. The victory gives the Titans their first state championship since 1985.

The first half was a shootout that. Bloomfield took an early 21-7 lead after wide receiver Anthony Simpson caught two touchdowns and ran for a third before halftime, but Sheehan had a rebuttal ready. Jordan Davis found the end zone three times and helped the Titans return to their locker room with 28-27 lead. 

The second half was all Sheehan. After allowing a touchdown to Bloomfield on its first possession, the Titans struck back immediately with an 80-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Simmons to Davis on their first offensive play of the half. Sheehan converted a two-point attempt to take a 36-33 lead and never looked back. 

Davis finished the game with 4 catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns, along with a fourth score on the ground, while running back Terrance Bogan rand for 195 yards and two scores. This was the eighth time this season the Titans' offense posted 50 points or more in a game and the second time they eclipsed 60.

Simpson finished with 237 yards of total offense (63 rushing and 174 receiving on 10 catches).
