Evan Loughran rushed for 151 yards on seven carries with a touchdown as visiting Spackenkill High School defeated Highland, 27-6, to improve to 2-0 overall this season.
Spackenkill scored a pair of offensive touchdowns, a defensive touchdown (on a 50-yard interception return by Marc Horvath) and a special-teams touchdown (a 70-yard punt return by Wayne Bowden).
“It was a smorgasbord of everybody,” Spackenkill coach Clinton DeSouza said. “Everybody touched the ball a little bit.”
Nick Celestino led the Spackenkill defense with four tackles and a sack, but DeSouza said he had about 10 hurries and pestered Highland quarterback Chris Ranalli.
“I thought our execution was better in all three phases of football — offense, defense and special teams,” DeSouza said.
Joseph Pugliese had a 40-yard run in the third quarter for Highland’s only score. Highland (1-1) was led defensively by Tyler Bugbee and Anthony Miglorino, who had six tackles apiece. The Huskies had 51 yards passing and 101 yards rushing.
