Sports Digest: Wolfpack Champions, Heartbreak

See what your local student-athletes—and their biggest supporters—are up to.

Welcome to Patch's snapshot of sports in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.

This week's run-down from football dad David Halesworth:

Wolfpack 3rd & 4th White hit the road to Byram Hills H.S. in Armonk again, but this time with the WYFBL Championship on the line.  After their dominant performance at the same venue two weeks prior, the boys were confident, and proved up to the task. 

After winning the coin toss, the Wolfpack wasted no time making a statement that they meant business.  On the opening  play of the game, Harrison Halesworth blasted through a huge hole off tackle, untouched, for a 60 yard score.  He tacked on the extra point for a 7-0 lead.  The Wolfpack defense then stepped up and showed that they are tops in the league as Dylan Nelson (all over the field, all game long), Jake Zednik, and Reuben Bertiz forced Armonk into a three-and-out series.  After the punt, it was Halesworth again, bootlegging around the left end and ripping off a 70 yard TD.  Dylan Nelson punched in the extra point for a 14-0 Wolfpack lead. 

The 2nd half began with Armonk on offense, but once again the defense proved unbeatable with Nelson, Halesworth, Zednik, Noel Gomez, Liam-Peter Hanson, William Kelly and James Welch shutting the door on Armonk, and forcing another punt.  On their first offensive play from scrimmage of the half, the Wolfpack offense put the icing on the cake as James Welch broke open deep down field and Halesworth launched a bomb that hit him in stride.  Welch waltzed into the end zone for a 65 yard score.  Jake Zednik capped the scoring with the extra point and a 21-0 lead, putting the game in hand. 

The Wolfpack played their best game of the season on both sides of the ball, in the biggest game of their season.  The offensive starters ran only 8 plays from scrimmage, scoring on 6 of them (3 TDs, and 3 extra points).  The offensive line of Michael Scaglione, Talon Carsto, Liam-Peter Hanson, Evan Bernal, Danny Sullivan, Reuben Bertiz, Noel Gomez and James Welch dominated the game, and opened huge holes for the backs to run through, while the starting defense shut down Armonk’s high powered offense, leading to a final score of 21-7 and a well-deserved Championship! 

Wolfpack 5th & 6th lost a heartbreaker, in overtime, to White Plains Bernies by a score of 24-16.  Details to follow.
