FREEDOM PLAINS – It was the first time, in a long time, that Ketcham and Arlington faced each other as two undefeated teams. Of course, it was only week two of the season, but both teams had impressive wins in week one, leaving the question, “Are they really that good?”
Arlington came back to beat Carmel in overtime 24-17 last week, and Ketcham annihilated Mahopac, scoring 32 unanswered points on their way to a 40-23 season opening win.
The face off between these two schools proved that they ARE “really that good”. This game came down to the wire, with Arlington edging out Ketcham in it’s last offensive possession with a 35-28 win.
“We’re a young team, but as coaches we can see how this group has really matured over the last two weeks.” reflected Arlington Head Coach Mike Morano.
Ketcham was threatening up to its final possession, but a deflected pass on 4th down sealed the win for the Admirals
“We shot ourselves too many times in the foot”, said a despondent Bryan Hogan. The Head Coach added, “I was pleased with our offense, but 28 points should give you a win in high school football”.
Arlington quarterback Austin Heck scored a rushing TD, and passed for two more. Arlington’s Ricardo Yolas scored twice, including the final TD of the game.
Ketcham’s wide receiver, Zaahir Woody scored two touchdowns and helped convert an a two-point conversion attempt.
