The OG on Rye Football: Preview & Eastchester vs. Rye @ Nugent Stadium 7:00 PM Tonight

By The Old Garnet

GARNET and OG

Friday, September 6, 2019 Eastchester vs. Rye @ Nugent Stadium 7:00 PM

MyRye.com has The Old Garnet back again with a preview of the season and a write-up on tonight's game:

It is gratifying the Section One Class A football committee retained some semblance of geographic emphasis in the construct of the ’19 campaign. Something old. In half of Rye’s six games the Garnets are matched against historic opponents Eastchester, Pelham and Harrison, all original SWIAC (Southern Westchester Interscholastic Athletic Conference) members. Something new. The first time Rye engages the Clarkstown twins, North and South, formerly of Conference AA. Once again the schedulers have acquiesced to Rye/Harrison Tradition Committee requests that “The Game” be the regular season finale (Week 6).

In what will be the 62nd renewal of a football series minted in the ‘20s, fellow SWIAC and CWL (Central Westchester League) charter member, the EASTCHESTER EAGLES rank 2nd to Harrison in all-time number of games played versus the Garnets. Rye and the Navy and Scarlet pecked each other for five decades from ’38 until ’87. Only twice since ’84 have the Eagles soared to victory and ’19 will not be the third as the Garnets bring the big bird down once again with the rookery ledger at 47-12-2 (.770). Eagles snore, Garnets soar. EGG THE EAGLES ! ! ! EGG THE EAGLES ! ! ! EGG THE EAGLES ! ! !
