Goshen forced over­time Satur­day night, but Red Hook High’s foot­ball team emerged the vic­tor in its Home­com­ing Game, win­ning 26-20 on Nick Mor­ris­sey’s 10-yard touch­down pass to James Flood.

Goshen forced over­time Satur­day night, but Red Hook High’s foot­ball team emerged the vic­tor in its Home­com­ing Game, win­ning 26-20 on Nick Mor­ris­sey’s 10-yard touch­down pass to James Flood.

Goshen’s Max Hein­rich kicked a 31-yard field goal with five sec­onds re­main­ing to send the non-league con­test into OT.

Red Hook got the ball first in OT and scored. Tan­ner Guidi in­ter­cepted a fourth-down pass in the end zone to clinch the win.

Quar­ter­back Matt Wierzbicki’s 2-yard touch­down run had (2-3) Goshen ahead mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter. Mor­ris­sey’s 50-yard TD pass to Hunter Cole closed the gap to 7-6 be­fore half­time.

“We did not do well on the ground at all.

They have an im­pres­sive line,” Red Hook coach Bill Stutz said. “I thought we would be able to do both.”

The Raiders were held to 97 yards on 40 runs. Tris­ten Schi­afo led the way, rush­ing for 47 yards and two short scores on 20 car­ries. Mor­ris­sey had bet­ter suc­cess in the air, com­plet­ing 10-of-23 passes for 190 yards. Guidi had three catches for 80 yards, while Cole caught two for 68 and Flood had four for 37.

The first of Schi­afo’s TD runs plus a Mor­ris­sey-to James Flood 2-point con­ver­sion had Red Hook ahead 14-7, but Wierzbicki’s touch­down pass to Max Suarez tied the game be­fore the third quar­ter ended.

Hein­rich’s field goal gave Goshen the lead in the fourth, but the Raiders quickly an­swered. Mor­ris­sey’s long pass to Flood set up an­other Schi­afo score to make it 20-17 with 8:30 left.

The 2-point con­ver­sion failed.

Guidi fin­ished with two in­ter­cep­tions and Mor­ris­sey had one. A Vinny Mag­giori in­ter­cep­tion and long re­turn set up Goshen’s touch­down.

Suarez led Goshen on the ground with 79 yards on 18 car­ries. The Glad­i­a­tors had 195 yards to­tal rush­ing and 41 pass­ing.
