Perfection! Carey wins L.I. championship
(Page 2 of 2)

Carey made history Friday by winning its first-ever Long Island football championship, 20-6 over Riverhead.

Spillane (50 yards), Ris, Robison and DeMeo all had two receptions. Senior Mike DeLeo paced the ground attack with 62 yards. Catapano, who also starred in the punting game by landing two inside the Riverhead 5-yard line, finished the campaign with 36 touchdowns and three interceptions.

“This was our dream,” Catapano said. “To bring the first Long Island championship to Carey is really amazing.”


The Seahawks limited Riverhead to 107 total yards in the first half and threatened to post their fifth shutout of 2013 before the Blue Waves started to make things interesting in the fourth. Ryun Moore (126 yards rushing) busted his longest run of the game — 30 yards — to set up quarterback Cody Smith’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Greenidge with 9:21 remaining.


After a Carey turnover, Riverhead drove inside the red zone with less than three minutes left but failed to convert a crucial fourth-and-7 from the Seahawks 9 when Moore met a swarm of defenders after catching a screen pass at the line of scrimmage.


“Our defense was relentless all season, and our offense was unstoppable,” Lucito said. “We had it all.”
