As far as Friday nights go around here, this is a busy one. There are 13 games on the local schedule, including two that match a pair of unbeatens. I’ll be there to chronicle one of them, Ossining at Rye, and you can find live updates on Twitter @lohudinsider.
We’ll be out at two other games as well. Rick Carpiniello (@lohudcarp) will provide the updates from another meeting of unbeatens, Sleepy Hollow at Nyack. Dan DeFrancesco (@lohud_defran) will be on hand for a big rivalry game, Panas at Lakeland, which could also be a key game in the Class A playoff picture.
Of course, I’ll also have all the final scores and recaps for you later on tonight. Please feel free to post your updates, recaps and opinions in the comments below. Enjoy the football!

Game recaps —
Rye 58, Ossining 14: At Rye, the Garnets set two program records, including the record for most points in a game. (Rye had never scored 50 points in Dino Garr’s 32 seasons as the head coach.) Junior Andrew Livingston also kicked a program-record 47-yard field goal just before halftime to give Rye a 31-14 lead.
Livingston completed his first seven passes of the game and finished 11 for 17 for 193 yards, a touchdown and an interception before he was removed late in the third quarter. He threw a 73-yard score to Tim DeGraw, who had six catches for 125 yards, all in the first half.
Rye outgained Ossining 478-166, forced five turnovers and had four sacks of Ossining QB Justin Davidov, who finished 3 for 18 for 39 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions and rushed for 44 yards and a score on 15 carries. His two touchdowns helped cut Rye’s early 28-0 lead to 28-14, but the Garnets scored three times in the third quarter before emptying the bench.
Shane O’Malley had 13 carries for 191 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Laz Chavez scored a rushing touchdown and had an interception on defense.
Sleepy Hollow 35, Nyack 28: At MacCalman Field in Nyack, Sleepy QB Devin Lopez rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns and threw for 155 yards and two scores in the air. Anthony Curanaj caught seven of those passes for 75 yards and a touchdown.
With the game tied 14-14 at halftime, Lopez scored on a 1-yard plunge early in the third quarter after Isaiah Sanjuan recovered an onside kick to open the half.
Nyack QB Jordan Mews went 7 for 10 for 142 yards and a TD to Kenny Diaz. Mews also ran for a score, and Adonis Alcime, returning from a concussion, topped 100 yards and scored two touchdowns. His second came with 7:43 remaining, but Sleepy Hollow stopped a Nyack drive later in the quarter to preserve the win and remain undefeated.
Panas 34, Lakeland 27: At Panas, Liam Hagens rushed for three touchdowns and threw for another. He scored the winner on a fourth-down run from three yards out with just 38 seconds remaining.
Lakeland quarterback Brian Prunty threw three touchdowns, including two to Kevin Petriccione, one of which helped tie the game 20-20 with 10:47 to play. Panas responded with a 14-play drive that was capped by Hagens’ go-ahead keeper with 3:52 to go.
Lakeland’s Jimmy Flaherty — in a surprise return from a shoulder injury — returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards to help tie the game. Panas responded with a 65-yard drive that was capped by Hagens’ winning touchdown.
Brewster 22, Eastchester 21: At Brewster, the Bears rallied from a 19-0 deficit to take the lead and then stopped Eastchester QB Anthony Gallucci inches short of the goal line on fourth down with under 10 seconds remaining. Brewster’s Brett Treco and Alec Martinez combined on the stop. Brewster then took a safety to run out the last four seconds of the game.
Touchdown runs by Will Tracy and Mike Marsico and a 68-yard touchdown pass from Gallucci to Steven Ngwande gave Eastchester its 19-0 lead early in the second quarter. Following Ngwande’s touchdown, Brewster’s Kyle Catalano returned the ensuing kickoff for an 88-yard score.
The Bears cut further into the deficit late in the first half when Liam DaRos hit Joe Buonadonna on a 1-yard TD on fourth down. DaRos threw the go-ahead touchdown to Catalano in the second half, and added a two-point conversion run for the three-point lead.
Tappan Zee 34, Yorktown 33 (OT): At Tappan Zee, the Dutchmen stopped Yorktown’s extra-point fake in overtime to end the game. They had scored to open overtime on a reverse pass — a lateral from Giuseppe Maddalena to Ryan McWilliams, who hit Dan DiDomenico for the touchdown.
Maddalena scored on a 23-yard run early in the fourth quarter to tie the score 27-27. Tappan Zee missed a field goal in the final minute of regulation that would’ve won the game.
Yorktown led 27-13 late in the third quarter after recovering a bad punt snap in the end zone. Mike Mante returned the ensuing kickoff 85 yards for a TD.
DiDomenico finished with a pair of TDs (60 and 19 yards) for the Dutchemen.
Clarkstown South 14, Carmel 11: At Clarkstown South, Hassan Auwarter rushed 21 times for 155 yards and a touchdown. Tommy Kiernan had 16 carries for 70 yards and a score. Their third-quarter touchdowns gave South the lead for good.
Carmel led 3-0 at halftime and was kept out of the end zone until the fourth quarter. Kiernan and Eric Margolis each led the South defense with 5 1/2 tackles. Christian Katt added five.
John Jay-East Fishkill 16, Ramapo 0: At Torne Valley Field in Hillburn, Andrew Moesch kicked three field goals. The Patriots forced three Ramapo turnovers (two fumbles, one interception) and remained unbeaten.
