Garnet Football @ Saunders Thursday

MyRye.com is pleased to be providing the Old Garnet's (AKA former school board prez Steve Feeney) Garnet football write-ups. Here is OG's note on Thursday's game:

Thursday, September 17

Rye @ Saunders (Yonkers) 4:30 PM

It’s not Duke. It’s not Chenango Forks. It’s the SAUNDERS TRADE AND TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL BLUE DEVILS, one of the five Yonkers city high schools. The game is on a Thursday afternoon to accommodate seasonal religious observances. Recently these Devils have been elusive and shadowy. Rye is hopeful they don’t disappear as they did in ’08 when the Devils forfeited their season opener due to lack of players. As the Blue and White usually have been in AA or in a league exclusively of Yonkers schools, Rye hasn’t had to avoid the Devil’s fork but three times – once in ’48 and a duet in ’90 and ’91. It’s the usual Rye story at 3-0-0 (1.000%). Watch out Garnets, this might not be the breather you expect.
