Halcyon days

Liberty junior Kenny Jaycox nearly makes it to the endzone as he is tackled by Fallsburg’s Sabastian Sanchez. Jaycox scored two TDs in Liberty’s 33-7 win over the Comets. It was Liberty’s last home game of the season.

Following a mistake ridden 1-5 start to their season, Tri-Valley returns to the football playoffs via league wins over Fallsburg (41-14) and Millbrook (31-20). The latter came on the Bears’ Homecoming on October 21. The victory gave T-V a 2-1-league record and punched a ticket back to the Class C semifinals. They will play James I. O’Neill at Dietz Stadium in Kingston on October 28 at 4 p.m.

Sullivan West (5-2) lost to Burke 14-7. The Dawgs’ TD came via a 45-yard TD run by Tom Mootz that tied the game at seven up. Burke (8-0) won it late on a 25-yard TD catch by Matt Cino. The two teams redial it up in the do-or-die Class C semifinals at Middletown’s Faller Field on October 28 at 4 p.m. The winners of the semifinal clashes advance to the title game on November 4.
