North Rockland 17, Clarkstown South 3: At North Rockland, Nick Connell ran for 107 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. On the Red Raiders’ first offensive play, Connell busted a 47-yard run, setting up a one yard touchdown from John Dapolito. Connell’s run would be the longest gain for either team, as they combined for more punts (16) than first downs (13).
“Off that toss, running all the way down and getting to the one – to me, I thought I was in – but it showed that our offense could move the ball. But then it was basically a more defensive game,” Connell said. “It’s an ugly win, but we’ll take it.”
Coming into the game, the North Rockland (3-0) defense had yet to allow a point so far this season. The defense finally gave in during the second quarter, but through little fault of their own. A Clarkstown South (1-2) punt pinned the Red Raiders inside of their own 5-yard line, and after two unsuccessful runs, Connell fumbled near the goal line on third down.
“It was basically a draw play,” Connell said. “I felt the ball, but it just came out. It was either on the handoff or on me, but our defense came up big.”
Charles Venezia recovered for the Vikings on the three, putting them in prime position to tie the game. But North Rockland stymied three consecutive runs up the gut, forcing South to settle for a 20-yard field goal.
The Red Raiders defense once again came up with a big play late in the third quarter to help their offense put more points on the board. Samuel Pierre Louis forced a fumble and fell on it to give North Rockland excellent field position, setting up a 23-yard field goal to increase the lead to 10-3.
Connell punched in a two-yard score with 2:12 remaining to seal the win.
Lourdes 49, Ardsley 20: At Ardsley, Gabe Kardish had two receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown. Rich Mcelligot added a touchdown reception. Carlos Monserrate was completed six of 21 pass attempts for two touchdowns and an interception.
Tuckahoe 34, Hastings 7: At Tuckahoe, Shyheim Nixon had 85 yards and three touchdowns on 11 rushes. Nick Resiman had 70 yards and a touchdown on eight rushes. Darrel Taylor had a 25 yard touchdown run.
Hackley 39, Kingswood-Oxford 27: At Kingswood-Oxford, Joe McDermott was 9 of 15 for 241 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 111 yards. Mustafaa Dais had five receptions for 191 yards and three touchdowns.
Woodlands 40, Valhalla 2: Justin Riccio hit on 5 of 6 attempts for 188 yards and four touchdowns.

Kourtney Blanding ran 29 yards on a fumble recovery to score.
Palisade Prep 30, Yonkers Montessori Academy 14: At Yonkers Montessori Academy, Brandon Tate had 78 yards and two touchdowns on seven rushes as Palisade Prep won the first football game in the school’s history. Tate also had two catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Jatique Bond completed 3 of 5 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Felix Marcano had 39 yards and one touchdown on four rushes. Daniel Akandu had a blocked punt.
Dwight Englewood 25, Harvey 8: At Harvey, Andrew D’Alessandro caught a 7-yard pass from quarterback Will Leventhal for the Cavaliers lone score. Ricky Hicks caught a pass from Leventhal to complete the two-point conversion.
John Jay 43, Horace Greeley 7: At Greeley, Tyler Keech went 14 for 20 for 305 yards and four touchdowns. Jack Lambert caught four passes for 119 yards and two touchdown, rushed for 80 yards and a touchdowns and went 5 for 6 for 80 yards and another score.
Chaminade 34, Iona Prep 31: In the first night game in school history at Iona Prep, Chaminade rallied from a 12-point fourth quarter deficit. Thomas Zenker scored the winning touchdown on a 15-yard reverse with 3:47 remaining. Iona Prep drove the ball to midfield, but Mario Biaggi threw incomplete on fourth down with 1:52 remaining.
Biaggi (23 for 32, 199 yards) and Shaquille Townsend (23 carries, 174 yards) helped the Gaels build a 31-19 lead, but they were hurt for the second week in a row by special teams. They allowed a 79-yard kickoff return by Robert Speranza Jr. the halved the lead to 14-7 in the second quarter. Two short punts led to Chaminade’s two fourth quarter touchdowns, including one that was returned 28 yards to the Iona 11 and led to Zenker’s go-ahead touchdown.
“It’s offense, defense, special teams. All three areas are equal,” Iona Prep coach Vic Quirolo said. “We have to get better at special teams.”
Iona built its lead early. Michael Barbuto returned a fumble 35 yards for a touchdown on Chaminade’s second play of the game. Biaggi ran for a touchdown to give the Gaels a 14-0 lead and later threw an 11-yard score to Chris Cooper. After their lead was cut to 21-19, Townsend rushed for a third-quarter touchdown. Christian Kapp added a field goal early in the fourth quarter to give Iona its 31-19 lead.
Chaminade (3-0) eventually wore Iona Prep down and began to dominate up front, according to Quirolo. The comeback comes a year after the Gaels lost on a last-second field goal at Chaminade and a week after their first win over three-time defending champ St. Anthony’s in nearly four years.
“Chaminade’s a real good team. They’re real physical,” Cooper said. “If we lay down like we did, you’ll see the end result: We’re going to get punched in the mouth. I was hoping we wouldn’t get complacent, but we did.”
Briarcliff 13, Kenendy 10, OT: At Kennedy, William Hou blocked Kennedy’s field goal attempt in overtime to end the game. Matt Pasternak hit a 37-yard field goal during Briarcliff’s overtime possession. He connected from 34 yards earlier in the game. Gerardo Munoz returned a punt 73 yards for the Bears’ only touchdown.
