 The Scarsdale football team beat New Rochelle, 14-7 at home on Saturday September 21. It was a huge upset as Scarsdale has not been the victor against New Rochelle since 1989.

The win was especially surprising since several players were suffering with strep throat and others were injured. In fact, starting quarterback Giancarlo Cugini started the game but suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter. Running back Rob Burns was also hurt during the game.

Running back James Nicholas scored the first touchdown when he ran 80 yards with the ball after the kick-off. He scored again in the third quarter. Defensive players Jack Bush and Joshua Konigsberg were big contributors to the effort.

Here are some photos from this historic game. Cheer on the Raiders and celebrate Raider Pride Week at at their next home game against Suffern at Scarsdale High School at 1:30 pm on Saturday September 28.
