Friday Playoff Tripleheader at Nugent Stadium

Halloween may still be a day away, but Rye sports enthusiasts are being served quite the treat today. Nugent Stadium will host three Section playoff duels inside its hallowed confines, beginning with the fourth-seeded boys’ soccer team’s contest with No. 13 Yonkers at 1:15. The second-seeded field hockey team takes to the turf at 3:45 for a Class B battle with No. 10 Walter Panas. In the nightcap the football Garnets, No. 1S, take on formidable No. 2N Poughkeepsie at 7:15.

Also in Garnet action is the ninth-seeded volleyball team, who goes toe-to-toe on the road with No. 8 Edgemont at 4:30.

I’m excited to be able to attend all three Nugent Stadium games, and I get the feeling it’s going to be a Rye kind of day. Post your predictions in the comments!

In yesterday’s news, the Rye Country Day girls’ soccer team won a hard-fought 2-0 game at home against Convent of the Sacred Heart. Delaine Powerful scored the first goal12 minutes into the game off a corner kick by Nicki Rosenbach. Jenna Frank scored 23 minutes later from a great cross by Elizabeth Wulf. The Wildcats held on in the second half thanks to some beautiful saves by Kayti Faustini in goal (nine saves) and strong work by the defense. Kayti and sweeper/co-captain Alex Sabatini were chosen stars of the game.

Rye Country Day’s field hockey team pulled off an impressive 7-0 victory at Masters. Six different Wildcats scored, including Nichelle Holmes, Isabel Beshar (2), Amanda Shulman, Clare McClintock, Jess Hanway, and Hannah Lowentheil. Sammy Coughlin made four saves in 30 minutes of action. The defense was so stout that Kate Moelis didn’t have to make one in her 30 minutes of play.
