Leading off today:
Jason Curran rushed for two touchdowns against an unbeaten opponent Saturday, and the offensive side of the ball probably wasn't even his strong suit for the day.
That's because the senior quarterback also picked off four passes on defense as Shoreham-Wading River, ranked 11th in the state in Class A, defeated Mount Sinai 35-7 in Suffolk County football action.
"He can roam around and make plays. We put him back there for a reason," S-WR coach Matt Millheiser told Newsday after his team improved to 5-0 by extending its winning streak to 17 games.
Five plays after a Curran pick in the first quarter, Chris Rosati (14 carries, 151 yards) raced 51 yards for the first of his three touchdowns.
More Long Island action: In Nassau County action, Class A No. 10 Plainedge rode a monster effort to a 56-28 win over Roosevelt. Senior Davien Kuinlan ran for 332 yards and six TDs and also threw for another score.
Already up 35-21 in the third quarter, Kuinlan found Corey Hill for a 45-yard pass on a flea-flicker play from Alex Brown. Later in the drive, Kuinlan took it into the end zone from 11 yards to put Plainedge (4-0) up 42-21.
Roosevelt's Jude Innocent finished with 18 carries and 209 yards and two touchdowns.
Class A: Kenny Speed caught five balls for 96 yards and two TDs as Greece Athena defeated No. 18 Greece Arcadia 14-7.
Ta'Von Granison made two interceptions on defense for the Trojans, and Jake Eggleston added 2½ sacks.
In Section 2, shorthanded Queensbury kept its No. 25 ranking intact by escaping with an 18-13 win over South Glens Falls.
The Post-Star reported Queensbury administrators suspended 40 athletes -- including football senior leaders Brett Rodriguez, Erik Wettersten and Ted Nolan -- across a number of sports on Friday after becoming aware of their participation in underage drinking parties. The football players face up to a two-game suspension.
Junior quarterback Kevin Collins led the Spartans with 107 rushing yards, but he also fumbled five times in South Glens Falls territory. He atoned with a game-clinching interception with :09 to play.
"I did feel redeemed," Collins said. "(Jared) Bruno was going for the interception, too, and it bounced right up in the air and I just followed it and caught it."
Class B: Chenango Valley limited eighth-ranked Waverly to minus-1 yard on the ground and plowed its way to a 22-12 upset. Junior fullback Aaron Trumino carried 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown for the winners, who threw the ball just five times in 55 snaps.
"That's what we're all about," Trumino told the Press & Sun-Bulletin. "We're about blocking and tackling, just getting a push up front, getting 3 to 4 yards at a time."
Two interceptions by Nick Pert in the fourth quarter ended any hope of a Waverly rally.
