Football Homecoming

The Blind Brook Varsity Football team faced off against Albertus Magnus High School
on Friday, September 30th at homecoming. With Albertus Magnus coming off a 0-4 stretch to start the season, many were confident that the Trojans could come away with a homecoming win. The Trojans started hot right from the kickoff. The first play of the game was a recovered onside kick, which led to a touchdown run by junior Robby Carey. Albertus Magnus quickly retaliated by scoring the following drive. In response, quarterback Jake Minick scored off of a QB sneak after a lengthy drive into Albertus territory giving the Trojans a 13-7 lead. A few minutes later, the scoring didn’t stop with senior Lucas Montesano catching a beautiful pass to put Blind Brook up 20-7 at the halfway mark. After halftime, the Trojans scored one more touchdown, thanks to sophomore Carmine
Casino. The game had many other high points, such as interceptions by seniors Lucas Montesano and Andrew Civetta. Unfortunately for the Trojans, Albertus Magnus wasn’t willing to go down quietly, and proceeded to go on a 37-point run during the second half, making the final result 44-26, a victory for Albertus Magnus. While the game didn’t swing in favor of the Trojans, Blind Brook still played a great
game. Some notable players were senior John-Paul D’Inverno, who ran a tremendous 92 receiving yards, and senior Jack Vnenchak, who ran 100 receiving yards. When asked about the team’s performance, Jack Vnenchak stated, “We lost our fire at halftime, and we need to work harder this week to make sure that doesn’t happen in the future.” Jack and the rest of the Trojans are looking forward to finishing the season off strong with four games left. The team put up a great fight and their talent certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.
