Posted Wednesday, October 19, 2011 by lohud.com

Honorable mention —
• Osama Junaid, Yonkers: He had 10 tackles and four sacks in a 27-14 win over Peekskill.
• Brett Poniros, Mamaroneck: The senior had 168 yards and three touchdowns on 13 carries in Mamaroneck’s 50-8 win over rival Port Chester.
• Mount Vernon defense: Despite a 7-0 loss, the Knights hung tight until the fourth quarter with 5-1 Arlington, holding the Admirals to a lone touchdown. They limited Section 1’s leading rusher, Parker Howard, to just 80 yards on 17 carries.
• Ossining defense: After allowed 25 first-half points, Ossining held Greeley scoreless in the second half, allowing the offense to score 18 unanswered in a key, Class A victory, 30-25.
• Darrell Everett, White Plains: The senior speedster had just six touches, but he turned two into scores in the Tigers’ impressive 40-21 win over Yorktown. Everett returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a score and later caught a bubble screen and took it 55 yards for another.
• Rye Country Day defense: In what was supposed to be their stiffest league test all season, the Wildcats beat St. Luke’s at home 42-7. They forced a whopping six turnovers on the day.

10. A.J. Kalmancy, Byram Hills: He bulled his way to 158 yards and three touchdowns as the Bobcats delivered a monster all-around rushing effort in their 28-21 upset of Sleepy Hollow. Teammate Brendan Rosen added 133 yards and a TD.

9. Tom Ginty, North Rockland: The senior RB solved the defense that shut out New Rochelle, rushing for 150 yards and two TDs on just 14 carries as the Red Raiders won their fifth straight and handed John Jay-EF its first loss, 28-8.

8. Shoran Tamura, Irvington: The runner converted to QB showed just how dangerous he was on the ground, racking up 193 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries in Irvington’s 19-6 win over Ardsley. He also went 2 for 3 for 12 yards and made four tackles on defense.

7. Kevin Dinnegan, Tappan Zee: The TZ QB rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries and connected with Joe Letizia on a 20-yard touchdown pass in his team’s 40-28 win over Albertus Magnus.

6. Khalil Edney, New Rochelle: The junior quarterback went 6 for 9 for 116 yards and two touchdowns and had 14 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown in New Rochelle’s 33-13 victory over Scarsdale.

5. Dan Hoffer and Mark White, Stepinac: The two junior QBs helped the Crusaders rebound from a tough loss to St. Anthony’s. Hoffer went 7 of 13 for 177 yards and two TDs and White had 125 yards of total offense, including 80 yards rushing and a TD in Stepinac’s 34-14 win over Holy Cross.

4. Christian Conway, Bronxville: The senior churned out another huge effort in Saturday’s 41-28 win over Pawling, a game Bronxville led just 14-13 at halftime. Conway ran for another 230 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries.

3. Rob Yurkowski, Kennedy: The junior had 28 carries for 305 yards and 2 touchdowns this past weekend against Briarcliff in the Gaels’ 35-24 upset victory. They had yet to win a game and Briarcliff had just lost one, making this perhaps the upset of the week. Yurkowski was a big reason why.

2. Dan Bassi, Westlake: With his team facing a four-game losing streak, Bassi ran for 342 yards and four touchdowns on 41 carries in the Wildcats’ 40-29 win over Putnam Valley. He even had a 60-yard touchdown called back because of a penalty.

1. Rye offensive and defensive lines: In the 81st playing of “The Game,” Rye beat Harrison 17-7 by controlling play at the line of scrimmage. The Garnets limited the Huskies to just 132 total yards and held them to just one first down in the second half. The big men — including Matt Keough, Peter Wittwer, Teddy Ice, Will Croughan, Andrew Sackett, and Dylan Lynch — up front also paved the way for Joe Simolacaj and Jake Meyerson, who combined to rush for 231 yards on 51 carries.
