The Rye Garnets host the Harrison Huskies for The Game this Saturday, October 8th at 1:30pm – watch it live.

For the game preview, we turn to the Steve “The OG” Feeney:

HARRISON HUSKIES @ RYE GARNETS @ NUGENT STADIUM  – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8 @ 1:30PM

LAST WEEK’S GAME – RYE @ FOX LANE

The result of the fox hunt never was in doubt with the Garnets comfortably ahead by seven, then fourteen, and then twenty-one before substituting liberally. The foxes snuck in a score against the subs for a final count of 21-7 Garnets. Tally-Ho!

GARNETS HOST ARCH-RIVAL HARRISON HUSKIES AT NUGENT

There is a huge question to be answered by the HARRISON HUSKIES on the turf at Rye’s Nugent Stadium this Saturday. “Will the worm finally turn?”. Yes folks it’s the grand-daddy of Section One football games reconvening for the 95th time since the 1920s. Since the 2003 doubleheader the Garnets have prevailed in twenty-two (22) of the most recent twenty-three (23) battles vaulting Rye’s Garnets ahead by a count of 49-42-3 (.538). The Maroon and White dominated the series in the ‘70s and ‘90s stashing a cushion of rivalry victories. It took the Garnet & Black forty-three (43) years to even the tally and then regain the upper hand – the first time since 1974.

It goes without question that this game is the highlight Section One Football Rivalry Game. Hey boys it’s time to strap on the old leather helmet and cinch up the chinstrap – you are now representing not just your school and classmates, but generations of your communities in this one. A crowd of over 5,000 is expected for this evenly-matched

If you want prime seats, arrive early, long before the clock ticks and the whistle blows on Westchester’s finest high school football game. Is underdog Harrison really the favorite in a dog disguise? In what could be a “Battle of Field Goals”, the Old Garnet calls the game a razor-thin Garnets 20 – Huskies 19.

  1. To remind people why arriving early is a good idea, (usually when they are evenly matched)

    Largest crowds in series history on record,
    1955:

    The widely-anticipated ’55 game saw both teams undefeated, and a crowd of 20,000 jammed Rye Stadium on Thanksgiving Day after weather twice postponed the contest.

    With a 33 game winning streak on the line,

    Rye led 12-0, but a late Huskies’ score made it 12-6. On the game’s final snap, Harrison scored on a flea-flicker and converted the extra point, stunning the Garnets, 13-12, and ending the longest winning streak in Westchester history up to then.

    2006:
    An estimated 12,000 jam packed John Nugent Stadium on Saturday in Rye where two of the best teams in the Hudson Valley squared off in “The Game”.

    The Journal News headlined it “Surreal Shocker” as New York State’s No. 1 Class B team (Rye) bested New York State’s No. 1 Class A team (Harrison) by 19-18. In this “instant classic”, six TDs were scored but only one extra point, Rye’s margin of victory.
