H.S. Report: Beach Channel Eliminated From Playoffs
The varsity football season for Beach Channel/ Channel View ended in agony as No.3 seedGrady upended the Dolphins, 13-12, last Sunday afternoon in the first round of the PSAL Bowl playoffs in Brooklyn. Brent Rachel’s two first half rushing touchdown proved to be the different as they held on after a late Beach Channel rally.
QB Breland Archbold completed a 24-yard touchdown pass to senior WR Henry Adegunle with 2:58 remaining in the fourth quarter to cut the Grady lead to 13-12. But Archbolds’s pass in the end zone to complete a two-point conversion fell incomplete.
No. 6 seed Beach Channel did recover the ensuing onside kick, but their attempt to complete their comeback fell short when Archbold was intercepted by Shakir Bryan at the Grady 25-yard line.
Beach Channel had a 39-yard touchdown pass from Archbold to Adegunle in the first quarter wiped out because of a holding penalty.
The Dolphins ended a tumultuous season in which they made the playoffs despite losing back-to-back games and a forfeit defeat to Madison in the regular season. The team pulled it together to win the final two games and make the playoffs.
“It wasn’t meant to be I guess,” said Beach Channel coach Victor Nazario.
“We want to thank the families for supporting us and our kids who are seniors for what they did for our team,” assistant coach Carlos Flores said. Girls Volleyball
