Newsday calls HS East a team to watch!

Posted Friday, October 21, 2011 by Lisa Coyle
From Newsday, October 21, 2011-  Hills East is on the radar of one of five teams to watch!


Two of Long Island's most explosive offensive units collide on the MSG Varsity game of the week when East Meadow travels to Freeport for a Nassau I football game at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.

East Meadow's star halfback Robbie Healey and pass-efficient quarterback Dylan Curry have been unstoppable on the way to a 6-0 record. Healey has 876 yards rushing and nine touchdowns.

Freeport, the two-time defending Long Island Class I champion is also 6-0, and will counter with quarterback Isaiah Barnes and a slew of talent, including Maurice Irby, Jere Brown and Evan Lapice. Most expect a shootout but the feeling here is the defense will take over and make this a nail-biter. The game can be seen on Cablevision iO Ch. 14 at 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

 Roosevelt (5-1) at Seaford (3-3), Friday, 7 p.m.: Roosevelt hasn't beaten Seaford since 2006 -- six straight losses. Can HB Erin Parker, Nassau's leading rusher, lead them to a victory. Seaford has lost three games by a total of 16 points.

 Mount Sinai (5-1) at Babylon (4-2), Friday, 7 p.m.: These are the two stingiest defenses in Suffolk IV. Mustangs QB Austin Kay has led a balanced offense.

 Half Hollow Hills West (3-3) at Newfield (3-3), Friday, 6 p.m.: There's a lot at stake in this one, as the loser might find itself shut out of the eight-team playoff bracket in Suffolk II. It's all about Newfield's defense trying to stop Colts explosive quarterback Devante McFarlane.

 

Deer Park (4-2) at Hills East (3-3), Saturday, 2:30 p.m.:Both teams can score, but the Falcons' defense is led by linebacker Vinny Vitale and could be the difference in Suffolk II. In this balanced league, this is another game with playoff implications.

 Garden City (6-0) at Carey (4-2), Saturday, 1:30 p.m.:Garden City will be tested by a Carey program that is one of the few that has had some success against the Trojans in recent years. Garden City and linebacker Patric Berkery boasts Long Island's top defense, allowing 28 points through six games.
