The Beacon High School football team beat host Lincoln 39-0 in Yonkers on Saturday to improve to 3-3.
Andre Davis had three rushing touchdowns. Alex Benson had a rushing touchdown and also threw a 50-yard pass to Jaden Navarro. Manny Garner added a 45-yard touchdown run.
“After losing a heartbreaker last week, we needed this type of performance to bounce back,” Beacon coach Tony Truscello said. “We ran the ball effectively and we were happy with that. It’s something we’ve been working on a lot the last few weeks. We need to complement the passing game and have some balance as we enter the playoffs.”
Spring Valley 25, Roy C. Ketcham 14 – Jyaire Stevens had 18 carries for 121 yards with a touchdown, but the visiting Indians fell to 1-5 with the loss.
Stevens had a 27-yard touchdown run. Chris Tyler had 13 carries for 55 yards. Brandon Chavarria had a 36-yard reception.
Ketcham led 7-0 at halftime and led in the third quarter 14-0 before the Tigers scored 25 unanswered points.
“From there it was kind of like a snowball,” Ketcham coach Bryan Hogan said. “They more or less scored 25 points in a quarter and a half. We fell apart.”
Saugerties 39, Red Hook 6 – Tristan Schiafo ran for 174 yards and a touchdown, but that was all the offense the Raiders got in a loss to the host Sawyers.
Schiafo, a junior, also made a career-high 23 tackles at outside linebacker. Tanner Guidi added 97 rushing yards for Red Hook (4-2).
“We got overpowered on the line and (Saugerties’) running attack was dominant,” Red Hook coach Bill Stutz said. “Offensively, we just never got our motor running… I think the message the team needs now, coming off a loss like this, is to just remember that we have to take it one day at a time and just focus on what’s ahead of us.”
What lies ahead is a home showdown with New Paltz (5-1) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the teams’ regular-season finale.
“We’re gonna try to memorize their sets and work as hard as we can to prepare for them,” Stutz said of New Paltz, which defeated Marlboro on Friday. “We have to take care of everything we can.”
Woodlands 40, Haldane 14 – Brandon Twoguns had a 15-yard touchdown run and Sam Giachinta added a 65-yard run, but the visiting Blue Devils lost to the Falcons in Hartsdale.
“Woodlands is a very athletic team, who made some big plays on offense,” Haldane coach Ryan McConville said.
Haldane (0-5) hosts Section 9’s Roscoe at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.
