Beacon, Haldane football squads both lose big
Beacon was scheduled to play at Hendrick Hudson on Sept. 27, but rain the day before led to flooding that moved the game to Lakeland High School.
The Bulldogs (2-2) gave up three long touchdowns early and showed little fight in the second half on their way to a 27-0 loss, touching the ball just once in the third quarter. “They were more physical, and they beat us up running the ball,” said Coach Jim Phelan. “That’s the first time all year that has happened.”
Quarterback Jason Komisar was 12-of-26 for 189 yards with one interception, and Lionel Cumberbatch had four receptions for 68 yards. Santino Negron had three tackles for losses and a sack, and Angel Feliz had a sack and five tackles.
Things don’t get easier for Beacon (2-2) this week, when the team hosts Brewster (3-1) at 7 p.m. today (Oct. 4) for homecoming. The Bulldogs will play under the lights on their new turf field.
The rebuilding Haldane High School football squad fell to 1-3 on Sept. 27, taking a 40-16 pounding at the hands of Section 1, Class D rival Tuckahoe (3-0).
Haldane was never in this one, falling behind 32-0 before getting on the scoreboard on a Dan Santos one-yard run in the third quarter. Doug Donaghy ran for the two-point conversion. Darrin Santos scored Haldane’s other touchdown on a 25-yard run in the fourth; he also ran in the two-point conversion.
Haldane travels to Croton on Saturday, Oct. 5, for a 3 p.m. game.
