Leading off today:
Four of the top eight teams in the New York State Sportswriters Association Class C football rankings lost this weekend, and the damage could easily had been worse if Babylon hadn't edged Mount Sinai and Chenango Forks hadn't topped Chenango Valley in overtime.
The key development in Week 5 was Class D No. 2 Tuckahoe rolling past Class C No. 2 Dobbs Ferry 38-14. Dobbs Ferry joined No. 5 LeRoy, No. 7 Cleveland Hill and No. 8 James O'Neill in losing for the first time this season.
Nick Reisman ran 11 times for 211 yards and two touchdowns for Tuckahoe, which snapped Dobbs Ferry's 14-game winning streak. Tuckahoe rushed for 333 yards and gained 445 overall.
Michael Castracucco threw for 109 yards and two TDs in the win, which avenged a 40-0 loss a year ago.
Meanwhile, No. 6 Chenango Forks found itself taken to two overtimes before finally beating Chenango Valley for the 19th straight time. Isaiah Zimmer ran for a touchdown and the conversion in the second OT.
On third-and-7 from the 17, Zimmer busted up the middle for 11 yards. He then followed with runs of 5 and 1 yard for the lead. Rather than kicking the extra point, Forks gave it to Zimmer again for a 15-7 lead.
CV quarterback Trevor Henige hit Zach Collins for an 8-yard TD pass, but running back Evan Trebilcock was stopped on the conversion attempt.
CV outgained Forks 277-173 and held the Blue Devils to two first downs over the final five possessions.
“It’s very frustrating,” CV coach Jay Hope told the Press & Sun-Bulletin. “We felt we had a good game plan, we felt the kids executed it."
Tuning up: Long Island Roosevelt, ranked sixth in Class B, have Seaford something to think about by posting a 35-14 win over Island Trees in which Johnnie Aikins carried 25 times for 293 yards and two TDs.
In addition, Marquell Saunders went 70-yards for a touchdown on his only carry.
Seaford, coming off a 31-27 win against West Hempstead this weekend, is ranked 22nd in Class A.
Seaford plays at Roosevelt on Thursday afternoon.
CHSFL action: Class AA No. 17 St. Anthony's built a 17-0 lead and then had to hang on for a dramatic 24-23 win over No. 15 Chaminade.
