Maloney defeated Windsor 35-21 to win its first state title in program history. Josh Boganski scored four touchdowns and racked up 244 rushing yards in the win.

"This was our goal for the whole year and we finally accomplished it, so it feels really, really, really good," said Boganski.

"A lot of people thought I was crazy I was going to Maloney and we wouldn't make the playoffs, we wouldn't make it to a state championship let alone win a state championship," said Maloney head coach Kevin Frederick. "We proved them all wrong today and Maloney is one of the best teams in the state."

"We needed the respect," said Maloney senior quarterback Angel Arce. "We felt like we deserved it and we got it. We put a statement in this game."

In Class M, Killingly beat Rockville 28-14 to earn its first state title since 2017. 

"This is the best feeling of my life by far," said Killingly senior Jack Sharpe. "To come out here and to do it on this field, I don't even know what to say."

"We showed it's possible for a small town from Windham County to come out and win two state titles in the last four years," said Killingly head coach Chad Neal.
