The crowd was roaring and very proud to wear their blue and orange last Saturday. The Indians put on a show for their home crowd and put a big number up on the scoreboard. The Indians (1-2) played Roslyn (1-2) on Saturday and it was an exciting game to watch. Manhasset put their all they had on the field and it showed throughout the game. All in all it was a great team victory and every aspect of the team played well.  

The defense play exceptionally well causing turnover after turnover. The Roslyn offense couldn't find an answer to get past the air tight defense of Manhasset. The team as a whole stayed within themselves and got the job done. Will Theodoropoulos had a great game, with 9 tackles. The offense line of Roslyn couldn't stop him and he kept finding holes to get the tackles. Jack Miller had a 95 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown and it was a huge momentum changer. Alex Demeri also caused a fumble and also picked it up and ran it for about 15 yards. The Indians supplied constant pressure on Roslyn’s quarterback and he didn’t even have time to breathe.  The defense was stellar and the offense picked up from where the defense left off.

The offense had a field day and got to use all their options throughout the game. The rushing attack of the Indians propelled them to the win. Just from the rushing side of the offense had a total of 5 touchdowns. Jack Miller had a 20 yard rushing touchdown to start the day and give Manhasset their original 7-6 lead and the Indians never looked back. Ben Cirella had two rushing touchdowns that gave the Indians a lot of confidence; one was from a yard away and the other was a great 34 yard rush. Normally Keyshan Johnson catches the touchdowns but on Saturday Johnson had a 13 yard rushing touchdown. Also, Corey Howell had a 7 yard rushing touchdown to seal the deal for the Indians. Thomas Duran also got in with the action; throwing a 33 yard touchdown to wide receiver Michael Bellucci. By far this was Indians best day offensively and if they keep playing this way things will surely be promising.

Manhasset won 48-6 through stellar play from all sides of the football. Manhasset is taking on Valley Stream North on Thursday.
