For the uninitiated, for about an hour after the completion of the annual Rye Garnets – Harrison Huskies football match-up, you would have thought about 35 people simultaneously called 911. Fire truck sirens blaring. Flashing police sirens. Rye citizens leaning on their car horns.
Instead, these were sounds of celebration. Facing its longstanding rival the Harrison Huskies, Rye football coach Dino Garr’s Rye Garnets pummeled their longstanding rivals 27-7. Kevin Davaney Jr. of LoHud.com’s Varsity Insider, in his commentary on the game, said:
"Rye has built its program up to the point where it doesn’t believe it can beat Harrison anymore. Now, it should beat Harrison."
Rye did not disappoint. Thousands turned out at the Harrison field. Enjoy our game photos and videos of the Rye – Harrison football game the the celebratory Rye Garnet dive into the Blind Brook after the game.
