The Shelton football team’s final game of the 2017 season has been moved to Thursday. The Highclimbers’ game against Mt. Tahoma is now set to kick off at 6 PM Thursday night. According to Shelton Athletic Director Jim Judson, a shortage of available referees prompted the change to Thursday and because it is a school night, the kickoff is an hour earlier. MasonWebTV Powered by HCC will be broadcast the game live.
The Shelton football team fell to Capital Friday 49 to 17 at Ingersoll Stadium. MasonWebTV Powered by HCC was on hand for the game.
Please note: due to technical issues, about two minutes of the fourth quarter are missing.
