One after another, Clarkstown North pounded in three rushing touchdowns out of the gate to build a 19-point first quarter lead in the annual Supervisor’s Cup game before coasting to a 26-8 win, its first Cup win since 2010.

The Rams took advantage of every opportunity in the first quarter, right from the opening kickoff. Senior Jack Abrams scored on the opening drive, rushing in from seven yards out.

Clarkstown North picked off a pass on Clarkstown South’s first drive, then turned it into a short rushing touchdown from Abrams. Clarkstown South fumbled the ensuing kickoff, which the Rams recovered inside the 20-yard line before Abrams rushed in again shortly thereafter.

The Vikings showed signs of life in the second quarter with junior Kyle Samuels’ reverse rushing touchdown and two-point passing conversation, but Rams senior Michael Porco sprung free for a 45-yard run mid-fourth quarter to deliver the final blow to the Vikings.

“When they put up eight points, it wasn’t really a big deal because we knew we still had our gap,” Clarkstown North senior defensive tackle Prince Emili said.

Player of the game: Jack Abrams, Clarkstown North: The senior’s quarterback rushed for two touchdowns in the first quarter to help the Rams build their early lead.

Turning point: Clarkstown North scored three unanswered touchdowns in the first quarter, building a healthy lead and digging Clarkstown South into an early hole.

Stat line: Rams seniors Abrams, Brian Garchitorena and Michael Porco all scored rushing touchdowns. Vikings junior Kyle Samuels scored the lone touchdown for Clarkstown South.

Quotable: Scarpelli on the rivalry: “The camaraderie and the respect that we have towards each other as coaches and as players — the kids have played with one another maybe through the New City Rams (pee wee football) or Little League — but there is a respect factor there.”
