ESM, Hampton Bays Football Take Tough Losses


The Eastport South Manor football team dropped its second game of the season, 42-0, at Sayville on Saturday. The Golden Flashes scored 35 of their points in the first half en route to the easy victory.

ESM head coach Bill Ashton said his team got caught in a couple of bad coverages on defense early in the game and Sayville made his team pay for it. He felt that his team played better in the second half but the damage had already been done.

Jake Hobbie was the only offensive player to get anything going for ESM, finishing with 70 rushing yards. Ashton also gave a nod to Nick Garone for running the ball well and leading the team in tackles for the second straight week.

After facing two of the toughest teams in Suffolk County in Miller Place and Sayville the first two weeks, Ashton said he and his team are looking forward to playing against more evenly matched teams going forward. The Sharks host Comsewogue for their homecoming game this Saturday, September 20, at 2 p.m.

The Hampton Bays football team found out why Elwood/John Glenn received the top preseason ranking in Division IV, falling 55-20 to the Knights in East Northport on Saturday afternoon. Glenn improved to 2-0 on the year, while the Baymen fell to 1-1.

Glenn put the game out of reach right away, going up 27-0 in the first quarter and taking a 34-0 lead before Hampton Bays got on the board in the second quarter when Matt Rinaldi scored on a 50-yard run. The Baymen scored again before the half, down 34-14 at the break, but the Knights scored three more touchdowns in the third, outscoring Hampton Bays 21-6 in that frame.

Josue Monroy led the team in rushing, while Jordan Johnson was the second leading rusher on the day for the Baymen, and also had six tackles and two sacks. He ran a kickoff back for a touchdown in the third quarter, and tossed the touchdown pass to Rinaldi.

The Hurricanes lost their first two matches of the season both by scores of 3-0. They lost their first match at Center Moriches on September 9 then lost at home to Huntington on Thursday, September 11. Set scores were not provided.

Westhampton Beach head coach Jackie Reed gave credit to Emanuel Clarke for playing well with limited experience in the sport. She did say she would like her team to get Collin Carreiri, the team’s most potent offensive weapon, more involved.

“We struggled this week in figuring out how to use our talent to succeed on the court as individuals and as a team,” she said. “We have the talent this year to go farther than we have in a few years, but we have to learn how to play hard through each point and play with each others ups and down. We still have a young team and the coaching staff is positive that we will find a way to be competitive this season.”
