H.S. Roundup: BCHS Seeks To Rebound From Defeat
The Beach Channel/Channel View football team learned some valuable lessons following their 28-12 loss to John Adams last Sunday. It was the first defeat for Beach Channel, who fell to 8-1 while remaining in first place in the PSAL Bowl Division.
“It was a combination of outstanding play on their part, and we just underestimated them and that’s our fault,” Dolphins coach Victor Nazario said. “We didn’t match the level of their intensity.”
John Adams treated their win as a championship victory following the events prior to the game in which the PSAL ruled Antoine Arnold, a Far Rockaway resident, was ineligible to play with John Adams and was forced to forfeit four games this season.
Arnold has played at Bayside last year before enrolling at Adams in September, but he did not have the clearance to play under PSAL transfer rules. John Adams record is now at 4-5.
Beach Channel was beaten in every facet of the game according to QB Pat Burrello. The offense posted their only points in the first half and the Dolphins defense allowed the most points and total yardage this season.
Burrello says the team will regain their hunger in their final game of the regular season at Beach Channel High School at 12 p.m. on Saturday against Long Island City. A win will seal Beach Channel the first seed and a home game in the playoffs which start on November 20.
“We can’t underestimate nobody. Can’t,” Burrello said. “Its football and you got to play hard every week.
Far Rockaway (3-6) lost their fourth game in a row with a 30-25 defeat to Lafayette (7-2) in a PSAL Cup Division football matchup.
The Scholars Academy girls volleyball team earned the third seed in the PSAL B volleyball playoffs which start today. The Seawolves, who finished 11-1 and tied for first place in the division with Campus Magnet, earned a bye in the first round. They will host the winner of either Richmond Hill and Fort Hamilton on Monday at 5 p.m.
