The Rye Garnets came into this weeks game looking for their first win of the season, and they found it in a big way, upsetting the defending Section 1 Class A champions Horace Greeley.
Rye won the game 26-7, riding the dynamic duo of RB’s Joe Simolacaj and Jake Meyerson. Simolajac ran for 60 yards and two touchdowns, while Meyerson rushed for 97 yards. Freshman QB Andrew Livingston looked poised throughout the game, and connected with a 9 yard pass to WR Dylan Lynch to put Rye in the lead for good.
The Rye defense was outstanding throughout the entire game, limiting all section QB Justin Ciero to only 31 yards rushing on 17 carries while only allowing seven points.
The Garnets will look to get their 2nd win when they take on Roosevelt HS on 10/6 at 4 PM.
