Leading off today:
The state's longest active winning steak and second-longest losing skein in football ended Saturday.
Garden City toppled: Quarterback Joe Manfredo matched his season total through six games by throwing for 177 yards as fourth-ranked MacArthur defeated co-No. 1 Garden City 27-7 in a Class A contest that snapped the Trojans' 42-game winning streak.
The 5-foot-6 Manfredo completed five of six pass attempts. Teammate Hugh Kelleher rushed 26 times for 139 yards.
Garden City had won 42 consecutive games, tying a Long Island record.
"Nothing lasts forever, especially a streak that moves from year to year with different personnel," Garden City coach Dave Ettinger said. "We knew it would end sooner or later -- it had to. We've set the standard and I'm proud of this group for extending the streak to 42 games and always focusing on the opponent in front of us. We never really talked about the streak."
James Katcher's 45-yard kickoff return set up a game-opening 11-play, 55-yard drive capped by Kelleher's 5-yard TD run. Garden City responded with a seven-play, 75-yard scoring drive, but MacArthur (7-0) got a 37-yard carry from Kelleher to set up Manfredo's 21-yard TD carry on a naked bootleg.
Manfredo extended the lead to 21-7 on a quarterback sneak with 3:53 left in the third quarter and added insurance with a 43-yard return of a fumble forced by linebacker Mike Esposito.
"This was a statement win," Kelleher said. "We just beat a great team that hadn't lost in four years."
Albany in the win column: Kquazay Dickens scored twice on 38-yard runs in the second quarter and tacked on two short scoring runs in the third as Albany defeated Niskayuna 26-16 to end a 26-game losing streak.
Dickens finished with 25 carries for 132 yards.
What a way to finish: Sophomore Railey Silvis hit senior Gavin Kulp on a 78-yard scoring strike on the last play of the game as Olean defeated Newfane 26-24 in the Section 6 Class B quarterfinals.
Nick Pantuso had a 90-yard kickoff return to open the second half and also scored in the third quarter on an 80-yard hook-and-ladder play that began with a Silvis completion to Kulp and closed the gap to 24-20.
"I just told the kids I'm 50 years old and I've never seen a game like that," Olean coach Phil Vecchio said.
Newfane outgained Olean 328-288 behind 157 yards on the ground from quarterback Garrett Srock.
More late drama: Junior Aidan Haran kicked a 20-yard, second-chance field goal with :12 to play as Jamaica downed previously unbeaten Petrides 16-14 in a PSAL Cup Conference game.
Petrides, ranked seventh in Class B, jumped offsides on Haran's first attempt, negating a miss. The winning drive was set up by a blocked punt at midfield with 2:40 to play.
Bennett overcomes adversity: Buffalo Bennett had to make do minus its top two running backs but booked a 26-16
