126th Team Falls to Newburgh in “AA” Semi Final

All good things come to an end as only one of the remaining 36 “AA” teams in New York State will win its final game as the Warwick Wildcats lose to NFA in the Section 9 Class AA football semifinals 41-16.  Warwick could not overcome a 21-point first half deficit but held its own against Section 9’s largest school. 

Warwick’s offense was led by Dan Thorson’s 160 all-purpose yards (kick–off and rushing yards).  Jake Durie, Owen Hoyen, Dan Thorson and Nick DiMarco rushed 28 times for 124 yards.  Nick Simonetta led all Warwick receivers with 5 receptions for 80 yards. Ryan McLaughlin and Justin Hurd contributed 3 receptions each (McLaughlin caught a TD from DiMarco). 

The defense was led by Jake Durie 10 tackles, Justin Hurd 7 tackles and Tyler Ellis 5 tackles and an interception.  Sophomore Johnny Accardo also intercepted a ball for the Wildcats.  Junior defensive end Alex Negersmith was credited with a safety. 

Warwick’s Drew Borner was a perfect 2-for-2 on extra points.  Warwick Football’s 126th Year summary article will appear next week.
