Williamson scores 6 times as Marlboro football romps

Billy Williamson ran for 239 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Marlboro football team in a 59-3 win over visiting Highland on Friday.

Eric Borchert ran for 121 yards, John Perugino rushed for 91 yards and Paul Evans had 89 yards as the Iron Dukes racked up 601 yards on the ground.

Perugino also had five receptions for 101 yards and snagged two interceptions. Sam Mongelli threw for 87 yards and ran for 81, Evans passed for 56 yards and Myles Barrington scored a rushing touchdown.

Jack Young had two interceptions and Jaydon Mianti picked off another for Marlboro (5-2). Zach Atkins had 12 tackles and a fumble recovery, and Barrington made 11 stops.

The Iron Dukes rebounded from a lopsided loss to New Paltz last week and concluded the regular season with his dominant win.

Marlboro, the five-time defending section champ, enters the Section 9 Class B playoffs next week against an opponent to be determined.

“We need to play with passion,” Iron Dukes coach Rich Ward said. “Thrive and survive each week.”
