Saturday, September 10 Harrison vs. Rye @ Nugent Stadium 11:00 AM
The worm has really turned in this fierce rivalry with the HARRISON HUSKIES. Since the ’03 doubleheader the Garnets have prevailed in 13 of the last 14 battles pulling Rye within a solitary singleton of being exactly even at 41-42-3 (.494%). Harrison dominated the series in the ‘70s and ‘90s building a cushion of rivalry victories. For 2016 the Garnets are the pre-season Class A favorite, Piner-ranked # 1, while the Maroon and White start the campaign in the middle of the Class A pack, unusually middling for the once-proud Husky gridmen. Even though slotted as the season’s second game, “THE GAME” is the highlight Section One Rivalry contest extending back some three generations over eight decades and reaches its 87th renewal as Westchester’s Premier Football Rivalry Game. Hey boys, it’s 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, unmatched in Westchester gridiron lore. Kick-off is slated for 11:00AM at Nugent Field at RHS. If you want prime seats arrive early, long before the clock starts on Westchester’s finest high school football game. HANG THE HUSKIES ! ! !
Next game: Friday, September 16 Rye @ Our Lady of Lourdes 7:00 PM
