OG’s Preview of The Game: Rye Harrison Football Saturday, 11am

The storied rivalry – an 83 year tradition – happens again this Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 11:00am at McGillicuddy Field at Harrison High School when Rye Garnet Football meets the Harrison Huskies.

Get there early to fight the crowd of 5,000 – 10,000 that attend each game.

To get you prepared, here is the game preview courtesy of the Old Garnet Stephen Feeney:

"Rye will attempt to get back into the Garnet and Black column in Westchester’s most storied high school football rivalry when the 83rd renewal comes around.  Seems there was a small fracas at Rye’s bridge and brook last year. – some dogs were seen swimming in Blind Brook without a permit? Consequently to reduce tensions the kickoff for ’13 was advanced to an 11AM start time.  Rye would settle for another one-point squeaker similar to ‘08’s 19-18 and ‘10’s 21-20 over the vaunted rival HARRISON HUSKIES.  Hey boys, its time to strap on the old leather helmet, cinch up the chinstrap and suck it up – you are representing generations of your communities in this one.  “THE GAME” is for all the marbles, all the bragging rights.  It’s the BIG ONE as Rye seeks to avenge ‘12’s shutout and tries to inch closer to parity with the Maroon and White in the long-standing series currently logged at 37-42-3 (.468). If you want prime seats arrive early at Harrison’s McGuillicuddy Field, long before the kick-off of Westchester’s finest high school football game.  Garnets do it again!   HANG THE HUSKIES ! ! ! !   HANG THE HUSKIES ! ! ! !"

  1. Good post OG.

    You should also let folks know that after returning victorious from McGuillicuddy to watch The Garnet’s in their ceremonial brook swim – everyone should plan on making a visit that night to see The Dragon Coasters at Rye Golf Club’s Whitby Castle.
