Leading off today:
Three-time defending Section 1 champ New Rochelle revealed
on Saturday that it has forfeited its Week 1 football victory due to the use of an ineligible player.
In an explanation released on Twitter, Huguenots coach Lou DiRienzo said the unnamed player participated in the 41-0 victory over Yonkers Brave before participating in the required number of practices.
"This was my mistake," DiRienzo said in the statement. "I would like to apologize to my player and their parents for my error. I would like to clearly and emphatically state that it was not a play to gain an advantage. The score of the game was 35-0 when the illegal participant was sent into game play."
DiRienzo told The Journal News that he didn't inform his players until after Friday night's 41-0 win at Scarsdale.
Friday's varsity football game between Gloversville and Ballston Spa was postponed
after a Gloversville player and a member of the coaching staff came down with Coxsackievirus. Saturday's JV contest was also scrapped.
Coxsackieviruses are RNA viruses that most commonly may cause hand, foot, and mouth disease. They can cause fever, headache and muscle aches, and small blisters may appear on the feet, hands and mouth.
The Gloversville district will be cleaning and disinfecting the high school this weekend.
A makeup date for the games was not announced.
