VIDEO: Minisink Valley beats Warwick, 17-14

It was an ominous beginning for the Minisink Valley football team.

A fumble in the end zone led to a quick 7-point lead for Warwick with 6:56 to play in the first quarter.

The Warriors rallied in the middle two quarters of the game – Richie Cummings scored a pair of receiving touchdowns and the Minisink defense held up – en route to a 17-14 victory.

Check out the video above for more.

Check out the game story online here.

Here is a photo gallery from the game.

Minisink Valley plays at Washingtonville next Friday night in another Class AA Division II game. Washingtonville hosts FDR on Saturday afternoon. For live updates from that game, check out my Twitter feed here: @THR_Montgomery.

Rick Remsnyder covered Cornwall’s 35-0 win over Port Jervis. Check out his game story here.

It was a busy day in Section 9 football. Here’s a quick rundown.

  • Tiquan Scott ran for 317 yards and five touchdowns as O’Neill beat Dover, 78-40. The Raiders (4-0) are averaging 58 points per game.
  • Jack Hindes rushed for 161 yards as Saugerties ground its way to a 4-0 record with a 34-27 victory over Valley Central.
  • Newburgh is back to .500 at 2-2 with an impressive 35-25 non-league road win at Binghamton.
  • Rondout Valley won the Valley Jug with a 47-36 victory over Ellenville. Ben Hikade rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns for the Ganders.
  • Sullivan West had just 14 minutes of possession but beat Roscoe-Downsville-Livingston Manor, 31-28, in a non-league game.
  • Trasean Jewell ran for a pair of touchdowns as Pine Bush earned a 34-19 Class AA Division I win at Middletown. Middletown senior RB Jordan Bryan was arrested on assault charges earlier Friday and did not play.
  • Kingston and Fallsburg both forfeited games on Friday, gifting wins to Monroe-Woodbury and Chester, respectively.

Kingston, Fallsburg forfeit Friday night games

A pair of Section 9 football teams forfeited games scheduled for tonight. Kingston won’t play at Monroe-Woodbury and Fallsburg’s game at Chester has also been scrapped. Monroe-Woodbury and Chester both earn automatic division wins.

“It is extremely disappointing for our team, our coaches, and our community but our school spirit remains strong,” said Monroe-Woodbury athletic director Lori Hock. ” We had our Pep Rally today at the high school to culminate Spirit Week.  The worst part is that the seniors will never get this game back.  It is unfortunate, but Crusaders are resilient. ”

This was to be Monroe-Woodbury’s homecoming game.

Top-60 boys basketball showcase at SUNY Sullivan on Sunday

The Mid-Hudson chapter of the BCANY is hosting its seventh annual Top 60 showcase exposure event at SUNY Sullivan on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Last year, all 60 spots were filled and over 30 college coaches were in attendance.

Player registration forms are available on bcany.org or through high school coaches. Day-of registration is also an option. The event is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are looking to play basketball at the college level. Each player receives a reversible screened and numbered jersey. Players will participate in four skill stations and five games.

“As Section 9 coaches, we see the benefit of providing exposure to our area players. This event is a great opportunity for Section 9 basketball to showcase our product. We are hopeful that even more college coaches will be in attendance at our event this year as we will be inviting over 200 college coaches to attend the showcase,” said Monticello varsity coach and BCANY deputy director Chris Russo.

VIDEO: Monroe-Woodbury beats Pine Bush

Monroe-Woodbury dominated most facets of the game, but penalties and special teams play left the Crusaders feeling a little flat after a 20-6 win over Pine Bush tonight. Check out the video above for more.

Click here to read the game story.

Rick Remsnyder was at Academy Field tonight to watch Newburgh Free Academy beat Middletown, 50-25. Middletown senior running back Jordan Bryan was injured and NFA surged back to win its first game of the season in style.

Here’s a quick look at some of the other action in Section 9 tonight:

  • Andrew Covais rushed for 165 yards and threw a touchdown pass to lead Minisink Valley to a 27-0 victory over Kingston. The Warriors host Warwick next week in a Div. II game.
  • Washingtonville moved to 3-0 with a 22-7 win over Warwick in a Div. II game. Erich Keutmann, Brandon Politza and Sean Dunnigan scored one touchdown apiece for the Wiz.
  • Kieran Kreider threw for 203 yards and three touchdowns to lead Cornwall to its first win, a 42-6 triumph over Poughkeepsie.
  • Tiquan Scott rushed for 94 yards and four touchdowns as O’Neill improved to 3-0 with a 49-7 win over Pine Plains.
  • Josh Delgado and Jack Rose ran for two touchdowns apiece as Chester won its first game of the season with a 36-6 verdict over Sullivan West.
