Ansonia Football Field Torn Up By ATV

ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) _ Ansonia High School’s football field has been badly damaged after someone broke into the facility with what authorities believe was at least one all-terrain vehicle.

Ansonia Mayor James Della Volpe, tells the Connecticut Post the rider or riders did about $15,000 damage to Nolan Field on Monday night, tearing up much of the natural turf.

Youth football teams were scheduled to begin using the field for practice on Wednesday. The first varsity high school game on the field is scheduled for Sept. 20.

Ansonia police say the gates to the field were locked Monday night, but evidence suggests the ATV or ATVs gained access through a smaller opening by some nearby tennis courts.

No arrests have been made.
