RYE GARNETS @ YORKTOWN HUSKERS – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 @ 7:00PM
People ask the Old Garnet many questions about Rye Garnet football lore.
This week’s most FAQ: “Was Rye’s second half comeback against Brewster the largest deficit ever overcome by the Garnets”?
If not the largest turnaround, Rye’s comeback victory over the Brewster Bears would definitely rank in the Top-5. I recall a game or two from the late 1950’s/early 1960’s where the Garnets stormed back from significant deficits in games versus Mamaroneck and Bronxville. Also the thirty-four (34) second-half points scored last Friday by the Garnets would have to be a Rye record if not #1 then in the Top-10 ever.
Garnets travelling to the first three 2022 season contests are seeing their odometers spin like Foxwoods slots with northern trips to Cornwall, Brewster and Yorktown. In the long and a-maize-ing history of Rye football the Garnets never germinated the YORKTOWN cornHUSKERS until the 2015 planting season. But what a bumper crop of games have been harvested almost annually since, whether it be regular season or post-season play.
The Huskers lose their luster unable to muster a talented cluster to backstop their pre-game bluster, buster. Mortgage the farm, sell the tractors, it’s a barnburner versus the Green and White. Rye harvests corn and it’s the Garnets plowing the Huskers 27-14. You can put all your popcorn on it.
