 - The West Haven football team knew it was going to be a tough start of the season, facing sixth-ranked Shelton in the season opener on the road.

Twice having leads of 7-0 and 13-7, West Haven could not hold on as Shelton rallied for a 21-13 victory in a Southern Connecticut Conference Tier 1 contest at Finn Stadium in Shelton Friday evening. 

Jaden Grant and Jordan Berrios scored for West Haven, but an injury to quarterback Andre Rentas was too much for the Westies to overcome.
