Beach Channel, Far Rock Football Keep On Winning

By Elio Velez

Beach Channel coach Victor Nazario and his coaching staff are doing everything they can to prepare their team with the right mindset of winning each week in the PSAL Bowl division.

The coaching plan has been working so well that the Dolphins have cemented themselves on top of the Bowl Division. Beach Channel captured their fifth straight win to start the season with a 34-6 drubbing at home last Sunday over Info Tech.

“We’re playing well enough to win. We’re getting the big plays and maybe our luck has turned a bit for us,” Nazario said.

The Dolphins (5-0) are getting performances from a number of players, which has been their modus operandi all season. Senior RB Mahamed Sidible, described by Nazario as a pleasant surprise this season, rushed for a team high 105 yards and scored a touchdown. Henry Adengule and Jahvari Josiah caught touchdown passes from QB Patrick Burrello, who also rushed for a touchdown.

The Beach Channel defense held Info Tech to only 112 yards of total offense. The Dolphins have only allowed 12 points in five games this season.

It’s all going well, but if the Dolphins need any reminders that good times can go bad quickly, he can go back to last season when they had a similar good start.The Dolphins were 5-1 last season, but three straight defeats not only ended their season in heartbreak, but also in playoff elimination.

Truman. who defeated John Adams 21-0, is in second place at 4-1. Four teams, including August Martin who will play Beach Channel this Saturday, are 3-2. The top four teams will make the playoffs.

“I tell the kids about the other teams. If we have a nonchalant attitude, we’re going to have a bad loss and will lose a lot of power points,” Nazario. “We got to take care of business on Saturday.”

Homecoming Day at Beach Channel H.S. Field will be on Saturday at 12 p.m. Tickets are five dollars and homecoming festivities will begin prior to gametime.

Seahorses Stuff Bryant

The final play of Far Rockaway’s PSAL Cup Division contest at home last Friday against Bryant was certaily a nailbiting moment. The Seahorses defense came up big when Bryant was only a twopoint conversion try from tying the game.

Romello White and the Seahorses defense stuffed Bryant RB Mohammed Abdullah at the 1-yard line with ten seconds remaining in the fourth quarter as Far Rockaway won their third game in a row, 14-12.

“A win is a win and I’ll take it, but it’s definitely to close for comfort,” said a relieved Seahorses coach Walt Wilkerson. “The kids were very excited and jumping up or down. For them it felt like they won a championship.”

Jowell Turner Moore and White each scored touchdowns. Shymeek Harris scored a two-point conver-
