Caution: don’t miss the Spring Football opener this Saturday night at 7:00pm, not the traditional Friday night time slot, due to the juxtaposition of the Passover, Good Friday and Easter holidays.
Not only is it the home opener, it is also the grand reopening of the “New Nugent” refurbished, renovated, revitalized and re-turfed by the District with funding from its community supported 2019 $80 million facilities bond referendum. The facility enhancements reinforce Nugent Stadium’s reputation of being the unparalleled Section One Best High School Football experience. A huge “thank you” to the Rye community.
Now to the game at hand . . . . . From never, ever playing one another, Rye and Yorktown have progressed to a nice mini-rivalry complete with nail-biters and blowouts and a 4-3-0 (.571) tally favoring the Garnets. The trend continues in the pandemic season home opener with Rye shucking the Huskers leaving them flustered while losing all their luster. The Green and White can’t muster enough high fructose corn syrup to even the series.
