Brandon Twoguns threw a touchdown pass and ran for two scores to lead the Haldane High School football team over host Pawling, 26-6, on Saturday.

“It’s a great building block,” Haldane coach Ryan McConville said of his team’s first win. “It gives us momentum and gets everyone pumped for next week. We have a lot of underclassmen on the team and it’s their first win, so they’re excited. We’re looking to build off this.”

Twoguns scored a 9-yard touchdown in the first quarter and threw a 3-yard touchdown to Anthony Percacciolo in the second. Twoguns’ 1-yard touchdown run gave the Blue Devils an 18-0 lead in the third quarter. Freshman Sam Giachinta scored his first career touchdown on a 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter for Haldane (1-3).

Joe Currie caught a 15-yard touchdown from David Bellucci in the fourth quarter for Pawling.

Haldane hosts Woodlands at 3 p.m. Saturday.

John Jay 36, Scarsdale 14 — Ryan Schumacher completed 4 of 4 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns, and he ran for 131 yards to lead John Jay on Friday.

Jaivon Reynolds had two receptions for the Patriots, including a 50-yard touchdown catch, and Travis Contreras had a 53-yard touchdown reception.

“I couldn’t be happier with our defense for holding them to those two scores,” said Patriots coach Tom O’Hare. “That’s a team that scores 30-plus just about every week. Our defensive coaching staff did a great job with in-game adjustments. It was a good win on the road against a good team, and we’re excited to be home next week.”

John Jay (3-1) hosts North Rockland Friday at 6 p.m. in its homecoming game.

Our Lady of Lourdes 32, Nyack 7 — Dean Rotger completed 19 of 27 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown to lead Lourdes on Friday.

The quarterback connected on his first 10 passes. Billy Riccardi ran for 87 yards and three touchdowns for the Warriors (3-1). Luke Timm, who had an interception, also caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Rotger, and Liam McGhee scored on a 2-yard run.

“I thought we played very good defensively,” Lourdes coach Brian Walsh said. “We shut them down in the first half.”

Lourdes visits Rye at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
