Carey one win from championship
(Page 2 of 2)

Junior Nick Spillane, right, scored twice for Carey in its 48-13 Conference II semifinal playoff victory over MacArthur last Friday.

Carey won 28-0 at Garden City on the first Saturday of October. “Garden City has arguably the most successful football program on all of Long Island,” Stanley said. “They’re always the measuring stick.

“We can’t make this game about them,” he added. “It’s got to be about executing our game plan. Given the way we’ve played, we really believe it [the championship] goes through us.”

Carey, which beat MacArthur 42-6 two weeks earlier, scored on back-to-back possessions in the second quarter to take a 21-6 halftime lead at Hofstra. Spillane capped a five-play, 63-yard drive with a 4-yard touchdown run, and Robison capped a 10-play, 56-yard march with an 11-yard run.

Colasurdo ripped off a 41-yard touchdown run just over a minute into the second half, and it was 35-6 heading into the fourth thanks to Robison’s 6-yard touchdown run that came four snaps after Spillane snagged an interception.
