Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016: Brewster's Guida accounts for eight TDs

   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. football site

   Class B: Hudson defeated Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk 21-6 for its first win in the series since 2005. Ravena is ranked 14th in the state.

   The Bluehawks struck first as Willie Walker converted on a 34-yard halfback option pass to Marcus Reid for a TD. Walker finished with 20 carries for 117 yards and also threw for 106 yards.

   Also noteworthy: Winston Britton returned from an ankle injury to catch six passes for 137 yards and a score as Hackley defeated Woodlands 41-12. Woodlands is ranked ninth in Class C.

   In Class D, Frankfort-Schuyler downed No. 4 West Canada Valley 24-20 on Nick Manino's 4-yard run in the fourth quarter.

   Lake George/Hadley-Luzerne, a combined 2-16 the past two seasons, is 2-1 after a 62-7 win over Cairo-Durham. QB Shane McCabe scored on both of his carries from 35 and 88 yards for the War Eagles, who scored on their first seven possessions.

   Big performances: Jake Sarow ran 26 times for 193 yards, caught three passes, recovered a fumble and returned an interception 74 yards for a TD as Akron topped Oakfield-Alabama 28-14.

   Anthony Maniscalco had his fifth interception of the year booked his fifth interception of the season as Williamsville North edged Niagara-Wheatfield 28-21.

   Scoreboard: Here's a look at all of Friday's football scores.
