Falcon Football Wins the Championship
The 10-0 Falcons came in as the No.1 seed as they faced the 9-1 Seaford Vikings on November 19th. The weather presented extremely difficult conditions for both teams, but the Falcons’ grit led them through as they defeated Seaford 20-6 to capture the Nassau County Conference IV Championship and advance to the Long Island Championships. The Falcons’ defense came to play, as they are the least scored upon defense on all of Long Island, giving up only 56 points in 11 games this season.
This is the first time the team has clinched the Nassau County Championship since 1987 when there were no Long Island Championship games and therefore the first time the Falcons will compete in the Long Island Championships. In 2009, the Falcons lost the county championship to Seaford.
The defense was led by defensive tackle Spencer Matthaei and John Famiglietti. Strong play came from our cornerbacks, John Pedranghelu and Nick Petralia, along with a feisty core of linebackers led by Colin McBride, Kevin Spence and Tom Talenti. The offensive line paved the way for senior captains Talenti and Pedranghelu to control the Seaford defense.
Support from the cheerleaders and fans kept the team going. The stands were filled with students, staff members and families, all braving the wind and rain to root for the Falcons. The cheerleaders smiled and cheered through the game as though it was a sunny afternoon. Locust Valley spirit is exceptional!
This was an unbelievable team effort that places the 11-0 Locust Valley football program in its first-ever Long Island Championship appearance against Shoreham-Wading River on Friday, November 27th at 12:00 PM at Hofstra University.
