Garnet Football Shines in OT to Put Away Mahopac

Rye Boys Varsity Football vs. Mahopac 2021-11-06

Rye Boys Varsity Football shined under the lights at Nugent Stadium Friday to put away Mahopac 17-14 in OT. The team advances in post season play to face Somers next Friday at 7pm in Arlington.

“It was a hell of a game,” Rye Boys Varsity Football Coach Dino Garr told MyRye.com. “We got behind – we were doing some defensive schemes that just weren’t working well and we made some adjustments and our players persevered and did a great job and showed great character in playing great defense for us and doing just enough to get us in the position to win at the end of the game.”

“It was really a total team effort,” said Garr. “Special teams did a great job, our kicking game was there when we needed it. Obviously we won with the kicking game getting the extra points and the filed goal.”

It was a chilly night but the Rye Cheerleaders turned up the heat with their halftime performance. “They showcased a portion of their Game Day competition routine which will be performed for the last time on Sunday November 7th,” said Rye Varsity Cheerleading Coach Melissa Marsden. “Come cheer on Rye Cheer as they compete for the Section One Game Day title. We are scheduled to compete around 11:30am [Sunday] at Blind Brook High School!”

Asked about his assessment of the Somers match-up next Friday, Coach Garr said “They [Somers] are a great team. They are undefeated and I think they are going to be favored and rightfully so – they beat up everybody that they played, nothing was close. We expect a big battle and are guys are going to come to play.”
