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.
