Connetquot has been running over opponents this season. But this week it was the passing game that grabbed the headlines. Senior quarterback Ricky Hahn fired three touchdown passes to wide receiver Tyler Nason as the T-Birds beat Ward Melville, 45-21, in a Suffolk I football game. Hahn completed 14 of 18 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 31 yards on five carries to lead Connetquot (7-1). Nason caught six passes for 102 yards and three scores. The do-it-all Michael Ansaldi returned two punts for touchdowns, one for 65 yards and the other for 67. He also added four tackles for a loss, including two and a half sacks. Halfback Marcus Gutierrez ran 17 times for 141 yards and a score. Ward Melville is 2-6.
