Leading off today:
Seaford delivered one of the most dominating first-quarter performances you'll ever see in a football playoff game -- and it had little to do with the 28 points the Vikings scored in a Nassau IV semifinal.
Seaford recovered three of four onside kicks in the opening quarter and ended Locust Valley's only possession in it with a fumble recovery on the Falcons' second play, setting the stage for a 41-0 victory Thursday.
Joe Angelastro ran for 173 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries and Logan Masters threw a pair of touchdown passes for the defending sectional champions.
"We came out with so much enthusiasm," Angelastro said. "We weren't going to be stopped."
The Vikings opened the game with a 66-yard scoring drive followed by Joseph Cain's first successful onside kick. On the following drive, Masters found Luke Farrant for a 6-yard touchdown pass.
The next onside kick attempt failed, but Locust Valley turned the ball over on its second play. Two plays later, Masters hit Zachary Grof for a 50-yard TD. Seaford recovered another onside kick, setting up a 49-yard TD by Angelastro that made it 28-0 with :40 left in the quarter.
One more onside kick gave the ball back to Seaford for the remainder of the quarter.
• In the other semifinal, Connor Cassidy ran 17 times for 199 yards and three touchdowns as Cold Spring Harbor rolled past Carle Place/Wheatley 39-7.
The Seahawks' Tommy Milana returned a line-drive punt 75 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter to start the scoring.
Back in charge: Top-seeded John Glenn swept Mattituck in the Section 11 Class B girls volleyball championship 25-20, 25-19, 25-22 to earn its 17th championship in 18 years.
