This past Saturday was the senior game and the last game of the main season for Varsity football. However, the varsity football team made history by defeating the Riverhead Blue Waves 33-7. This win made their record 5-3 and gained them a spot in the playoffs for the first time in over a decade. Although Riverhead only had one win this season, the players knew it wasn’t certain that they would win.
