pulled out a 17-14 victory over No. 28 Lindenhurst in a clash of state-ranked Section 11 Class AA football teams.
West Islip rallied from a 14-0 deficit in the fourth quarter.

West Islip quarterback Mike LaDonna carried 30 times for 109 yards, scoring on carries of 1 and 3 yards to set up the tie-breaking field goal.<

Queensbury possessed the ball the entire first quarter with a 19-play drive culminating with an O'Mara score on the first play of the second quarter.
