Championship Game This Saturday

Regular season ends on

high note for Roslyn Bulldogs

This Saturday, the Roslyn Bulldogs have a chance to both avenge their recent loss to Port Washington and more importantly, win the Conference V championship. At 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 2, the Bulldogs will travel to Port Washington to play Paul Scheiber High School in the title game.

Meanwhile, the regular season ended with a flourish last week as Roslyn defeated Great Neck North, 28-9 in a home game played under sunny, but brisk conditions.

The Bulldog attack was its usual balanced self, with Roslyn rolling up a 14-0 halftime lead, before scoring two more touchdowns in the third quarter. Chris Snipes ran for 105 yards and Alex Epprecht carried for 100 yards, with both scoring a touchdown. Epprecht also scored on the receiving end of a 40-yard touchdown pass from Adam Combs. The Roslyn quarterback went four for six for 83 yards. Combs also had a 27-yard touchdown toss to his favorite target, Isaiah Hunter. Snipes’ five-yard run put Roslyn on the board in the first quarter. That was followed by Combs’ aerial bomb to Hunter. In the third quarter, Epprecht’s 62-yard gallop put the game away, 26-0.

As Roslyn heads into the championship game, first year coach, Mike Cochoran reflected on the squad’s amazing success.

“They got a good taste of winning at the end of last year,” Cochoran said, referring to the high-scoring 2012 team. ““We’ve had some very good seniors,” he added, mentioning both Alex Epprecht and Isaiah Hunter. The good times may keep coming as the team’s star quarterback, Adam Combs, is only a freshman. “It’s been a pleasure to coach them,” Cochoran said of the 2013 team. A former defense coach for Seaford High School, Cochoran is in his first year as Roslyn’s head coach and for Bulldog football, the best may be yet to come.
