Gaylord hosting archery event;  Papallo, Cortez keep cooking; Harvest time for Hunter women

WALLINGFORD — The Gaylord Sports Association is hosting its second annual Gaylord Bullseye Classic on Tuesday afternoon.

The adaptive archery tournament plays from 1-4 p.m. on Gaylord Hospital grounds at 50 Gaylord Farm Road.

More than a dozen adaptive athletes with permanent impairments, including amputations and spinal cord injuries, will compete. Some will shoot from a seated position, others using an adaptive mouthpiece.

Papallo’s hot run

continues at SCSU

NEW HAVEN — While opposing football teams have been able to handle Southern Connecticut State this season — the Owls stand at 1-6 — they haven’t been able to cover wide receiver Tylon Papallo.

The grad student from Meriden continued his recent tear with two touchdown receptions in Saturday’s 27-21 Homecoming loss to AIC. One TD was from 56 yards, the other from 51.

Papallo had five total catches on the day for 128 yards.

Over the past three games, Papallo has caught 17 passes for 352 yards and four TDs, including the game-winner in Southern’s lone victory, 6-3 over St. Anselm on Sept. 30.

Heading into this Saturday’s game at Pace, Papallo has 41 receptions on the season for 654 yards and five touchdowns.

Cortez strikes twice in AMC upset

NEW HAVEN — The Albertus Magnus College men’s soccer team defeated Saint Joseph’s College of Maine for the first time since 2015 with a 2-0 victory on Saturday.

Meriden’s Kelvin Cortez had both goals in the victory. That gives the Wilcox Tech grad 10 goals on the season, which leads not only Albertus Magnus, but the entire Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

Albertus stands at 9-2-3 overall and 7-2-2 in the GNAC heading into Tuesday night’s road game in Newport, R.I. against Johnson & Wales.

Harvest time for Hunter women

MERIDEN — Connie Bird and Mary Bachinski combined to shoot a gross round of 86 to out-duel 17 other teams in the Ladies Fall Harvest Tournament at Hunter Golf Course.

Bird and Bachinsky won by two strokes ahead of Jeannie Pac and Lisa Bishop.

Three teams tied for third at 89: Myra Reynolds-Noreen Clark, Cheryl Wasilewski-Mary Murphy and Val Miller-Kate Kelly.

In the September weekly events at Hunter, the team of Bird and Bachinsky, in combination with Clark, carded a low gross in the Sept. 12 tournament. Reynolds, Cheryl Mrazik and Mariel Albee had low net that day.

A week earlier, Reynolds and Pac teamed with M.J. Petretto for low gross. Low net was carded by Mara Dunleavy, Agnes Cornwall and Mary Galati.

Bi-weekly winners for the first half of September were Reynolds, Galati and Judy Soprano (gross) and Marian Michnowitz, Alice Schilling and Agnes Cornwall (net).

The second half of the month saw Petretto, Mrazik and Linda Remington shoot low gross. Pat Taylor, Thea Gambardella and Ali Herzog posted low net.
