So Week 1 of the high school football season is over, meaning the regular season is somehow already nearly 17 percent complete. Wait, what?
It’s true, at least for teams in Section 1.
If you missed it, here are the scores and recaps and links to our coverage from Week 1.
I will be back this evening with Week 1 award winners, including the Coach of the Week and our Top 10 Game Balls, including the Varsity Insider Player of the Week. Until then, below the schedule for Friday, Sept. 11 and Saturday, Sept. 12.
Consider these some of the highlights:
• Stepinac, last year’s CHSFL AAA champ, which finished as the No. 2-ranked team in the state, opens on the road Friday night at Newburgh, last year’s Class AA state runner-up. Newburgh just thumped one of last year’s Class AA state semifinalists, Section 3’s Henninger, at the Carrier Dome on Saturday.
• Six of last year’s eight Class A playoff teams will meet head-to-head Friday night: Sleepy Hollow at Rye, John Jay at Yorktown and Somers at Panas.
• New Rochelle and Mahopac will swap opponents after impressive fourth-quarter comebacks in Week 1. The Huguenots will host Mamaroneck and Mahopac will host John Jay-East Fishkill.
