Mighty M-W looks to “re-focus” after loss to spirited Washingtonville

What’s up with Monroe-Woodbury?

That’s the question many are asking in Section 9 after Monroe-Woodbury’s shocking 24-7 non-league loss to Washingtonville on Friday.

What’s up with Monroe-Woodbury?

How about giving Washingtonville some credit!

You can make the case that Washingtonville (4-4) is a playoff-caliber team. The Wizards lost three Section 9 Class AA Division II games, to Roosevelt, Warwick and Minisink Valley, by an average of 4.6 points per game.

“The way we played against Monroe-Woodbury, we feel like we should be undefeated, or maybe have one loss,” Washingtonville punter/kicker Derek Deoul said. “We really played our hearts out. I think we just had a couple of bad breaks this year, but it still meant a lot to win that game.”

Washingtonville 24, Monroe-Woodbury 7 served as the Wizards’ first win over the mighty Crusaders since 1981. Former New England Patriots player personnel director Scott Pioli helped that Washingtonville team finish 10-0, defeating Port Jervis for the Orange County League title.

Now back to Monroe-Woodbury, the Class AA Division I regular-season champ. The Crusaders (6-2) are banged up. Star wide receiver/defensive back Jesse Kaffenberger has missed most of the season with a hamstring injury and is questionable for Saturday’s Section 9 Class AA playoff semifinal against Warwick at Faller Field in Middletown. Monroe-Woodbury’s best offensive lineman, center Brendan Doheny, could miss the Warwick game due to injury. He has sat out the Crusaders’ last two games.

Back-up running back Johnny Bauer sustained an ankle injury against Washingtonville and another prime time player, running back/linebacker Cole Gennett, has taken a beating all year – answering each shot. Even though Monroe-Woodbury beat rival Newburgh 27-21 during the regular-season, the Goldbacks enter the Class AA playoffs as the favorite.

“We weren’t focused for the Washingtonville game,” Gennett said. “We came in there thinking we were going to beat them because they weren’t in the playoffs. But they treated it like the Super Bowl and came out with a lot of heart. I’m surprised Washingtonville isn’t a playoff team.”

“Washingtonville deserved to win,” Monroe-Woodbury coach Bernie Connolly said. “They played better than we did. We need to re-focus. We got our butts kicked by Stepinac early in the year and we came back great against Minisink Valley. We just need to step up because now it’s the playoffs. It’s lose and go home.”

NFA administration building named after legendary coach Fornal

NEWBURGH – Newburgh didn’t only pick up a big win on Friday night, the Goldbacks also put together some halftime show.

Newburgh’s athletic administration building was dedicated as the Charles V. Fornal Athletic Administration Building during halftime of the Goldbacks’ 39-30 Section 9 Class AA Division I game over Middletown on Friday. The late Fornal is somewhat of a Newburgh legend.

Charles “Rip” Fornal, who was born and raised in New Windsor, graduated from Newburgh in 1940. He taught at Newburgh Free Academy and is the most tenured coach in Newburgh history, serving in the position for 22 years (1960-82). Fornal played football at Newburgh and later attended New York Military Academy in Cornwall.

He earned a football scholarship to Syracuse, but put his football career on hold to serve in World War II. He was a gunner in the U.S. Air Force from 1942-45, returning to Syracuse after serving.

Prior to his coaching career at Newburgh, Fornal led Rome Free Academy to a state championship in 1954. He came to Newburgh a year later, serving as an assistant coach for five years, before becoming head man. Fornal died in April of 2009 at the age of 87.

Several of Fornal’s family members and Newburgh administration were on hand for the dedication.

Newburgh wins classic over Middletown (with video interviews)

NEWBURGH – For me, one of the best games of the season took place on Friday night.

Final score: Newburgh 39, Middletown 30.

The classic also yielded a great moment. After the showdown ended, there was star Newburgh running back Anthony Dubose near midfield, exchanging pleasantries with Middletown linebacker Lex Galarza and running back Jordan Bryan.

Before the game, Galarza, nearly erupting, talked trash to Dubose from afar from the Middletown sideline as he was introduced. Sprinting on the field, Dubose shot Galarza a look, and yelled something. What followed was a hard-hitting, back and forth game, a classic.

However, once the final whistle blew, it was all good.

Dubose had another big night, rushing for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Aaron Forbes added 131 yards and two scores. But then there was the performance of the kid – Bryan. He put up 270 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

The scenario entering the game was simple: Winner advances to the Section 9 Class AA playoffs, loser goes home. Middletown was trying to advance to the postseason for the first time since 1996. The Middies (5-3, 2-2 Class AA) secured its first winning season since 2001 with a win over Roosevelt last week.

But it’s Newburgh (6-2, 3-1 Class AA) that advances to take on Minisink Valley in the Class AA playoff semifinals at 7 p.m. on Nov. 1 at Kingston’s Dietz Stadium. Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick meet in the other semifinal at 7 p.m. on Nov. 1 at Faller Field in Middletown.

Here is what Dubose said after the game:

I also talked to Newburgh defensive end Jelani Hanks:

Newburgh, coming off back-to-back-to-back blowout wins over Valley Central, Pine Bush and Kingston, seemed set up to put Middletown away early. Aaron Forbes, who finished with 131 yards, scored on a 42-yard run on just Newburgh’s second play of the game.

Dubose scored on a 63-yard run on the Goldbacks’ next offensive touch to put the Middies in a 14-0 hole just 4:16 into the game. However, Bryan answered with touchdown runs of 4 and 99 yards to pull Middletown within 14-12.

Middletown took its first lead of the game on a 25-yard run by Bryan, going up 24-21, with 3:11 left in the third quarter. Newburgh answered 1:10 later on a 30-yard pass from Tyriek Washington to Chris Decker to put Newburgh up 28-24. But it was Jordan again, this time on a 37-yard score, to give Middletown a 30-28 lead with 9:28 left.

However, Forbes, ripping defenders off him all night, came back with his touchdown to give Newburgh the lead for good – 34-30 – with 5:26 remaining. He added a two-point conversion run. Freshman kicker Pete Matthews sealed the game with 41 seconds left on a 25-yard field goal.

We close out with Newburgh coach Bill Bianco:
