Kennedy knocks off South Side
(Page 2 of 2)
South Side began its next possession at the Kennedy 42 following a long punt return by senior Michael Nunziato, but a fumble on a fourth-and-3 attempt to start the second quarter was recovered by Cougars junior Jesse LoPalo.
The only offensive scoring drive of the night occurred in the second half. Behind Emory and the blocking of linemen Aydin Kessler, Dominic Albi and Andrew Rodriguez, the Cougars marched 83 yards on nine plays and reached the end zone with 48 seconds left in the third quarter. Emory scored from two yards out, and senior quarterback Michael Kaplan found senior Tom Ferner for the 2-point conversion to make it 14-0.
A 27-yard field goal from senior Connor Longo with 2:36 to go sealed the outcome.
“Bad things are going to happen sometimes,” Dolan said. “Tonight we cleaned up some of our mistakes and played pretty good football.”
