Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019: Harrison outlasts Eastchester 44-42 in two overtimes

   Leading off today: Casey Judelson's third touchdown of the game put Harrison ahead for good in a 44-42 football victory over Eastchester in two overtimes on Saturday.

   Harrison completed the victory by stopping an Eastchester 2-point conversion in the second OT.

   Judelson finished with 37 carries for 298 yards and also blocked a punt. Harrison rushed for 452 yards, including 83 for Rob Forgione, who scored a TD for the winners in the first overtime.

   The win was the first for new coach Jay Ciraco.

   Soph sparks Commack: Sophomore defensive back Ryan Brady slipped through the line to make the stop on Sachem East halfback Adriel Robinson on a 2-point conversion in overtime, preserving Commack's 14-13 comeback win.

   It was Brady's second big play in overtime. Moments earlier, he caught a 5-yard TD pass from Aidan McCarty (21 of 40, 240 yards). Kieran Hendry added the extra point to make it 14-7.

   Commack responded in OT with Ryan Paolella's 8-yard TD run.

   Iona Prep looks sharp: Quarterback Darius Wilson went 17 of 29 for 284 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 71 yards and a score as Iona Prep defeated Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII 41-21 in the Battle for the Bridge at MetLife Stadium.

   Iona Prep's defense finished with six sacks and a forced turnover and its offense gained 566 yards. Junior Alex Williams and sophomore Justin Joly combined for 11 catches for 225 yards and three touchdowns.

   "This is big for New York," Wilson said. "It showed them that we're just as good as them and we deserve just as much respect."


    • Receiver Justin Houston hauled in the go-ahead 27-yard TD reception as St. Anthony's completed a fourth-quarter comeback for a 16-14 win over Delbarton (N.J.).

   "It was challenging," first-year coach Joe Minucci said. "We know everyone's been looking forward to this game since August, but we have to get ready for a long season. So the kids and coaches did a good job of making sure we stayed focused."

   St. Joe's QB off to solid start: St. Joe's sophomore quarterback Callum Wither threw for three TDs for the second straight week and the Marauders rolled past Buffalo Bennett 50-26.

   Wither arrived at St. Joe's from Kitchener, Ontario, and already has offers from three MAC schools.

   "He's a big-time football player," coach Derek Landri said. "The special thing about him is he's an even better young football site

man. He leads the way you want a kid to lead by example in both effort and mentality on the field. He does what he's coached to do, just wants to get better for his teammates and play for his teammates and through his teammates."

   PSAL action: Quarter- back Mike DiForte rushed for four touchdowns and returned an interception for another as Petrides downed Far Rockaway 30-16 in a PSAL Cup contest.

   DiForte ran for 185 yards on 15 carries.

   Perfect games: Holy Trinity senior Joe Tortello went 8-for-8 for 284 yards and four touchdowns in a 55-24 triumph against Cobleskill. Nacier Hund- ley scored on catches of 41, 50 and 74 yards.
