Senior Dean Patierno scored on back-to-back punt returns of 59 and 68 yards, giving Yorktown a 14-0 lead, which ignited the host Huskers to a 49-7 triumph against Horace Greeley on its homecoming night.

“There’s nothing better but without the blocking, it would not have happened,” Patierno said. “It’s all my teammates. It feels great.”

Dylan Smith (6 carries, 90 yards) finished the scoring in the opening quarter with touchdown runs of 5 and 27 yards, before scoring on a 5-yard scamper in the second quarter, putting Yorktown up 35-0.

“He’s a great player,” Patierno said of Smith. “He’s a freak athlete. No one can stop him; it’s going to keep going all season.”

Trevvon Johnson (3 for 5, 135 yards) connected with Ben Robinson on a 55-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Sean Vogel then scored on a 4-yard touchdown run in the final quarter to finish the Huskers’ scoring.

Josh Leffel (7 for 7 PAT), Andrew Finateri (1 reception, 58 yards, 3 carries, 23 yards) and Alex DeBenedictis (5 tackles) also contributed to the victory.

Yorktown will next host Nyack (4-0) in a showdown of unbeaten teams and storied programs, which have combined for 15 sectional and four state championships, at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4.

“We just have to stay humble and keep working hard,” Patierno said. “If everybody works hard, we should win.”

Lakeland Football (3-1)

Lakeland 22 @ Lourdes 20
Friday, Sept. 27

Lakeland held on to a 22-20 win Friday night, when host Our Lady of Lourdes (Poughkeepsie) missed a potential game-winning field goal from about 30 yards out with just seconds to go.

The victory was the Hornets third in a row, their longest winning streak since winning four in a row, including a 24-0 victory at Fox Lane, in the Section 1 Class A Tournament, in 2009.

“This was a huge win for our team,” said Lakeland coach Mike Meadows. “Lourdes beat us 48-6 last year so to close the gap this year is huge. Lourdes coach Brian Walsh is an all-time great coach. This win means a ton for our program.”

Tyler Santucci (13-19, 140 yards, 2 TD, 2-point conversion), Rob Nardelli (4 catches, 62 yards, 1 TD), Nicholas Badillo (5 catches for 50 yards, 4 rushes for 16 yards), Matt Makar (13 rushes, 42 yards, 1 TD),

Landon Ruggieri (3 catches, 18 yards, 1 TD, 2-point conversion),

John Guifridda (13 tackles), Jake Difede (5 tackles) and Jorge Duque (5 tackles) all played big roles in the win.

“The team was able to pull it out by playing together and keeping our composure,” Meadows said. “All week long, we talked about rising up to the occasion and we were able to do it tonight. So proud of my boys. They listened and performed.”

Lakeland’s next game is its Athletic Hall of Fame Induction night, 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, against undefeated John Jay (Cross River), the defending Section 1 Class A champions.

Lakeland 9 @ Somers 0
Thursday, Sept. 26

Salazar (3G, 2A) led Lakeland to a 9-0 victory against Somers.

“I definitely think yesterday’s game was based off of determination and a positive attitude,” Salazar said. “We went into the game against Somers knowing that they were one of our biggest games in our league so we had to go into it with a good mentality. Being scrappy in front of the goal definitely leads to success and doing a strong lift into the back of the goal is a great feeling. Also, communication on the field and pre-scanning before I got the ball was a big help. As for my stroke, it was nerve racking but hearing the ball hit the backboard definitely helped my confidence.”

Keirra Ettere (1G, 2A), Fon (2G), Emma Halderman (2G), Daly (2A), Emma Ryan (1G), McCrudden (1A) and Pagliaroli (2 saves) also contributed to the victory.
