Beacon 14, Walter Panas 6
The Bulldogs scored twice in the third quarter on Friday (Sept. 13) and then held on for a victory at home.
Quarterback Jason Komisar completed 15 of 30 passes, including a 50-yard touchdown throw to Quazir Hayes, and a 61-yard strike to Lionel Cumberbatch, who had five receptions for 143 yards.
Beacon’s defense — which had an interception and four sacks against Panas (0-2) — has now allowed just six points in its first two wins following its 18-0 defeat of Poughkeepsie.
“Our defense kept us in it, and our offense made a few big plays when we needed them in the second half,” said Coach Jim Phelan. “Now we’re trying to prepare for Lakeland, and put ourselves in a position to go 1-0 this week.”
Beacon takes on Lakeland (0-2) on Friday in Shrub Oak, with the kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
Haldane 28, Hastings 24
The Blue Devils evened their record at 1-1 on Saturday (Sept. 14) by defeating Hastings, 28-24.
The game was tied 6-6 at halftime; Haldane scored on a 57-yard run by Dan Santos. In the second half, Santos ran for a three-yard TD to make it 14-6, Doug Donaghy added a 10-yard reception in the fourth from Santos that made it 22-12, and Santos sealed the game with a 32-yard run in the fourth.
“Our kids responded to the challenge in the second half,” said Coach Ryan McConville. “Dan Santos [who finished 11-of-14 for 120 yards, with one TD and one interception) had a major game running and throwing. Doug Donaghy made a big-time catch for the TD, and that was set up by Darrin Santos on his 35-yard catch.”
Haldane has its homecoming game on Friday at 7 p.m., hosting Irvington.
