"Football: Rye upsets undefeated No. 1 seed Clarkstown South in 28-21 thriller
WEST NYACK – Halloween may still be almost a week away, but Rye and Clarkstown South decided to give fans a thriller of a night under the moonlight Friday.
Rye head coach Dino Garr said after last week's win against Nyack that his Garnets would have to play "a perfect game" to knock off the undefeated, top-seeded Vikings. After grinding out a 28-21 win over the hosts and punching a ticket to the Section 1 Class A championship game next week, Garr reflected on the game.
"It wasn't perfect, but man, we did enough perfect stuff," he said.
Rye (8-1), the No. 4 seed in the tournament, exploded for three touchdowns in the second quarter after a stagnant start to the semifinal contest. South (8-1), which handed the Garnets their only loss of the season earlier this year, took back the lead in the third quarter and held it for most of the fourth."
