Leading off today:
Nick Cunningham had the best night of any Hendrick Hudson quarterback ever, and Brewster quarterback Jack Guida made sure it went for naught.
Guida rushed for six touchdowns and threw for two more Friday to carry Brewster to a 56-49 win. The Bears did not take their first lead until Guida's touchdowns of 67 and 55 yards midway through the fourth quarter.
Hendrick Hudson drove to the Brewster 14 before turning the ball over on downs. The Bears then ran out the clock.
Cunningham accounted for six first-half TDs and got No. 7 in the third quarter. He finished with six scores through the air and one on the ground.
"I don't think they charged admission, but it was worth it if they did," Brewster coach Ed Mulvihill told The Journal News.
C-NS dominates: Though No. 1 Pittsford lost, perhaps the most surprising development in Class AA was the ease with which Cicero-North Syracuse handed 16th-ranked Liverpool a 34-0 setback.
The Northstars scored touchdowns on their first four possessions. Junior Erik Pride ran for 106 yards and two TDs and caught a short pass from Conner Hayes for another score.
More Class AA: Two-time defending Section 9 Class AA champ Newburgh Free Academy may have righted itself after a pair of losses by a combined five points. The Goldbacks scored a 50-25 win over No. 19 Middletown.
Middletown broke to a 19-3 lead on the strength of Jordan Bryan, who had 16 carries for 188 yards and three TDs before leaving with an injury midway through the second quarter.
It was all Newburgh after that at the Goldbacks reeled off 26 straight points. Ryan Skivington finished with two TD throws and Newburgh got two rushing touchdowns each from sophomore Terry Anderson and junior Jadon Munroe.
• Longwood downed No. 25 Ward Melville 35-19 as senior Latrell Horton rushed 22 times for 189 yards and three TDs. He also finished with two sacks, two other tackles for losses and a fumble recovery.
"All in a day's work," Horton told Newsday. "Today was a good day for Longwood football."
Class A highlights: No. 4 Somers and No. 5 Shoreham-Wading River suffered losses in Week 3.
Yorktown scored 22 points in the fourth quarter of its 34-13 win over Somers. Jose Boyer threw a 9-yard touchdown to Alex Ujkaj and ran for scores covering 14 and 43 yards. Boyer ran for 202 yards and threw for 186 on 11-for-19 accuracy.
Meanwhile, Babylon put an end to S-WR's 25-game winning streak by rallying from 14 points down and earning a 27-21 victory in overtime.
Babylon QB Scott Sasso (two TDs passing, two TDs rushing) connected on a 9-yard pass to Noah Parker in overtime that gave the Panthers their first lead of the game. The defense ended the contest by forcing a pair of S-WR incompletions for the 30-yard line.
• In Section 3, Central Square overwhelmed No. 24 Carthage 38-26 for its first win of the season. Dante Rogers paced the winners with a 5-yard rushing touchdown, a 90-yard pick six and a 40-yard scoring reception.
