The slate was supposed to be a clean one today with Yom Kippur beginning at sundown. Instead, there is a game on for this afternoon.
OK, half a game, but you get it. Anyway, check back later for the final score and details on the rest of Ossining-Spring Valley. Clarkstown South-Ramapo was supposed to resume, but a shortage of officials pushed it to Monday at 4 p.m., according to East Ramapo district AD Bill Pilla.

Ossining 42, Spring Valley 28
Ossining 42, Spring Valley 28: Ossining senior quarterback Justin Davidov has gotten off to a hot start.
Davidov completed 10 of 21 passes for 226 yards and four touchdowns in Friday’s 42-28 win over Spring Valley in the completion of a suspended game. That’s 21 of 38 for 463 yards and seven touchdowns over two games.
He also carried the ball 22 times for 209 yards and scored another touchdown against the Tigers. He’s rushed for 353 yards and four touchdowns over two games. When his two-game rushing and passing totals are combined, they come to 816 yards and 11 touchdowns.
“Justin’s an unbelievably talented kid who’s a dual threat,” Ossining coach Dan Ricci said. “A lot of our plays are his option whether to run or throw it. He reads the defense very well. I’ve had great quarterbacks in the past who can throw and who can run, but I’ve never had one who can do both. Justin does both equally well. It makes it very difficult to coach against.”
The game started Thursday but was suspended at halftime due to the weather. Ossining led 21-6.
Davidov’s favorite target in vs. Spring Valley was senior James Johnson. The wide receiver caught four of Davidov’s passes for 105 yards and three touchdowns.
“James (Johnson) has become his favorite target,” Ricci said. “James sat out last year. So it’s his first season back in two years and he already has five touchdowns. They have a good connection. They play basketball together.”
Solomon White had a rushing TD and Michael O’Conner had a receiving touchdown for Ossining.
The Tigers scored four touchdowns in the game, three of which came from Marquis Macharie — all on the ground. Justin Sapini scored the other TD.
