KHS-NFA, Class B show­down on tap

New Paltz-Red Hook bat­tle could de­cide Di­vi­sion I crown

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE - Free­man staff

A Class B show­down be­tween New Paltz and Red Hook highs and the 110th game in the Kingston-New­burgh ri­valry high­light this week­end’s lo­cal Sec­tion 9 football ac­tion.

The Raiders host the Huguenots 1:30 p.m. Saturday in a game that could set­tle the Class B Di­vi­sion I ti­tle. The Tigers, still seek­ing their first win, are at Di­etz Sta­dium 7 p.m. to­day against an NFA squad that just clinched first place in Class A Di­vi­sion-I.

Other games tonight fea­ture Marl­boro at home to Highland, Wal­lkill en­ter­tain­ing Corn­wall, Roo­sevelt trav­el­ing to Mid­dle­town and El­lenville on the road to face James I. O’Neill.

Sauger­ties’ un­de­feated team looks to go to 7-0 as it takes on Pough­keep­sie at home 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Also on Saturday, Ron­d­out Valley plays host to Pine Plains in its Home­com­ing Game. TO­DAY New­burgh at Kingston

New­burgh (3-0, 4-2) has been a tough team all sea­son and come in rid­ing a four-game win streak. The Gold­backs lost their first two games, but by a com­bined five points.

Quar­ter­back Manny Wil­son rushed for 108 yards and Ja Var Tins­ley ran for his third touch­down of the year, a 2-yarder that tied the game at 7-7 mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter, to lead (0-3, 0-6) Kingston in last week’s loss to Mid­dle­town.

The Tigers, who lost Chuck Robin­son (torn an­kle lig­a­ments) the week be­fore, man­aged only 74 yards af­ter ty­ing it and the Bears went on to win 31-7. In a sloppy game Kingston was pe­nal­ized 10 times for 100 yards.

The series that started back in 1915 is all even with each team hav­ing won 52 games and five end­ing in ties. New­burgh has won the last three years. Highland at Marl­boro

Marl­boro (2-1, 4-2) looks to bounce back from its 34-7 loss to New Paltz with its fi­nal Class B Di­vi­sion I game against (0-3, 2-4) Highland.

John Perug­ino’s jug­gling catch and run on a 51-yard pass play from Sam Mon­gelli pro­duced the Dukes’ only points against the Huguenots. Mike Mal­heiro ran for 115 yards and Isiah Daubon ran for 91 yards and one touch­down and also passed for 102 to lead Highland in a loss to Ron­d­out. Roo­sevelt at Mid­dle­town

Mid­dle­town (3-3) snapped a three-game los­ing streak with its vic­tory over Kingston. Reg­gie Steed ran for 126 yards, in­clud­ing three first-half touch­downs, and quar­ter­back Shane Rosa raced for 103 yards, in­clud­ing a 55-yard TD sprint in the sec­ond half, to lead the Mid­dies.

E.J. Bu­dai had a TD run for (3-3) Roo­sevelt, which lost 28-7 to War­wick and tries to re­group in this Class AA matchup. Corn­wall at Wal­lkill

A (4-0, 4-2) Corn­wall team that has won four straight can’t think ahead to next Saturday’s show­down in Sauger­ties that will de­cide first place in Class A. Wal­lkill (1-3, 2-4) has been

a much bet­ter team than it record shows. It lost to the Sawyers two weeks ago by only a touch­down and was edged 21-20 by Mon­ti­cello last week­end. El­lenville at O’Neill

It won’t get any eas­ier for (0-4, 0-6) El­lenville, which comes off a 63-0 loss to Spack­enkill and now faces (3-1, 5-1) O’Neill in a Class B, Di­vi­sion I game. The Raiders downed Lib­erty 33-21 last week. SATURDAY New Paltz at Red Hook

New Paltz (3-0, 5-1) can claim the di­vi­sion ti­tle and, with it, a bye in the quar­ter­fi­nals with a vic­tory. A win by (2-1, 4-2) Red Hook could lead to a three-way tie for first place with Marl­boro.

Be­cause of blowout wins by New Paltz over Marl­boro and the Dukes over Red Hook, New Paltz could still win the di­vi­sion (in point dif­fer­en­tial) by los­ing Saturday’s game by less than 20 points. A Raider tri­umph by 21 of more points and first place would be de­cided by a blind draw.

The Huguenots are fresh off the Marl­boro tri­umph, while Red Hook is re­group­ing from the loss to Sauger­ties. Pough­keep­sie at Sauger­ties

The (4-0, 6-0) Sawyers had another 500-yard of­fen­sive per­for­mance in their 39-6 win over Red Hook. Jimmy Ball and Rob Trin­cellito each ran for two touch­downs to lead Sauger­ties. Class A foe Pough­keep­sie (2-2, 2-4) has lost three of its last four games, in­clud­ing last week’s 61-13 set­back to Pine Bush. Pine Plains at Ron­d­out

Ron­d­out (3-3) turned in a solid out­ing to post the win over Highland. The Gan­ders take on a (1-5) Pine Plains/ Rhinebeck team that’s com­ing off a 48-0 loss to Dover/ We­bu­tuck.
