Who: Harrison (2-1) at Rye (3-0)
When: Tomorrow, 1:30 p.m.
Where: Nugent Stadium, Rye
Key players: Harrison - Phil Dillulio (5-11, 185), Sr., QB; Sam Goldman (5-11, 180), Sr., WR/DB; Jeremy Burnett (5-11, 198), Sr., RB/LB. Rye - Kyle Ramalho (5-10, 220), Sr., FB/DE; Connor Eck (6-0, 170), So., QB; Ryan Rossi (5-10, 185), Sr., C/LB.
Key matchup: Ramalho vs. Harrison's defensive line.
When Harrison has the ball: The Huskies showed they can do a lot more than run the option in last week's comeback win over Fox Lane. Dillulio threw a pair of touchdowns to Goldman, and Burnett ran for 164 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns. When Dillulio has time he can deliver the ball.
When Rye has the ball: With so many new faces on offense, the Garnets figured to need time to jell. It's gone faster than expected as Eck has settled in at quarterback. Ramalho, though, will likely see a workload similar to the 35 carries he got in last year's win over Harrison as the Garnets try to control the line of scrimmage.
Outlook: The defending Class B state champion Garnets are aiming for their sixth straight win over Harrison in the storied rivalry. While Rye has been untested so far, Harrison has roller coastered through the first three games. It was pounded 38-3 by Somers on opening day, beat Saunders 35-0 and needed a 28-point fourth quarter to edge Fox Lane last week. Which team will show up tomorrow? If the Huskies don't get into a rhythm early and their defense fails to limit Ramalho, they could be in for a very long afternoon.
