North Football: Rams vs. White Plains (Homecoming Game)

by Kyle Unger

Game #7 vs. White Plains (W 34-21)
Friday, October 19th, 2012

In their sixth game of the season, the Clarkstown North Rams had lost senior Anthony Termine for the remainder of the season due to a back injury. For their seventh game the following week, the Rams were determined to win the game against White Plains for Anthony. Furthermore, the emotions were already skyrocketed because this was Clarkstown North’s Homecoming Game. With Termine leading the way out in his wheelchair, the Rams felt more comfortable in his presence. The Rams out in front and never let up the lead. Clarkstown North stormed to a 21-0 lead by halftime. In the second half, the Rams never really seemed to slow down. Although they scored a less amount of points and gave up more points than in the first half, their home-field dominance was still messing with White Plains players. Senior Frankie Regalbuto threw for a touchdown and ran for two of his own. Senior Billy DeLay was on the other end of Regalbuto’s TD pass and DeLay also caught two interceptions. Junior Matt McMullin ran for two of his own as well. The Rams coasted to a 34-21 victory to give them a 5-2 record on the season. North is definitely eligible for the playoffs, but the question is if they will make it in. Stay tuned and see if the Rams make the playoffs! The Rams had a very productive season as there are many seniors who will be missed for the 2013 season, but the season isn’t done yet!

North Football: Rams vs. Mount Vernon

by Kyle Unger

Game #6 @Mount Vernon (W 26-6)
Saturday, October 13th, 2012

For the sixth game of the season, the Rams went on the road to face Mount Vernon HS. Clarkstown North had a rather depressing defeat last week against town-rival Clarkstown South, so the Rams were fired up and ready to come out strong in the following game. Unfortunately for Mount Vernon, this was that match. The Rams only allowed Mount Vernon to get six points on the scoreboard as they fought for their well-deserved fourth win of the season. With that win, the Rams have clinched the playoffs, but the celebration wasn’t really the way the team had hoped. In the first half, senior Anthony Termine was going out to receive a pass from senior Frankie Regalbuto. Termine leaped in the opposite direction of where he was running because the pass was dropping behind him. On the fall, he landed in a very awkward position on his back and lost feeling in his legs. It was a very scary moment for the team and for the Termine family. Anthony’s season seems to have come to an end, as the passion of the team seems to have significantly decreased when the Rams won’t have their captain on the field Friday for their homecoming game. Termine is staying in Westchester County Medical and is at a slow start to just being back on his feet. Anthony will be in our thoughts during the game, as the Rams hope to get a win for him. Come and support the Rams against White Plains on Friday, October 19th for Clarkstown North’s homecoming game!

North Football: Rams vs. South

by Kyle Unger

Game #6 vs. South (L 14-7)
Friday, October 5th, 2012

This was the game that everyone in Clarkstown was waiting for; the rivalry match between Clarkstown North and South’s football teams. The Clarkstown North Rams hosted the Clarkstown South Vikings for the Rams’ fifth game of the season. With the field-advantage, the Rams stormed down the field first with a TD pass by senior Frankie Regalbuto to senior Ricky Straniere. Straniere would also end up leaving the game with a bruised collarbone and separated shoulder from a play later in the game on defense. Clarkstown South quickly answered with a run of their own to tie up the score. The game was mostly based on great defense. Each squad was quickly going 3-and-out and was forced to punt. After remaining tied at halftime, Clarkstown South scored first in the second half and continued to dominate with their defense. The Rams were shut out in the second half as they fell short to the Vikings 14-7. The Rams dropped to 3-2 on the season as now Clarkstown North gets set to face Mount Vernon on the road. We all know Mount Vernon is far, but come and support your school with team colors!

Board of Education Meeting (9/27) Report

by Daniel Friedman

Thursday, September 27th was the latest Board of Education meeting for the Clarkstown School District. A number of motions were passed that affected North:

  • Contracts on a trial basis were given to three different geese management companies to determine the most effective and humane way to deal with the geese problem at both high schools and the middle school.
  • Plans were approved to create a new concession stand and approximately 500 new seats for the football field. The current concession stand will be outfitted with electricity.

All in all, due to a strong presence at board meetings from PTSA President Dorothy Atzl, and the willingness of board members, many changes have been approved that benefit North and hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

North Football: Rams vs. Carmel

by Kyle Unger

Game #4 @ Carmel (W 41-0)
Saturday, September 29th, 2012

After a loss against Ramapo at home last week, the Rams wanted to check their luck on the road. Their first game of the season was a home win at Scarsdale 33-14. Clarkstown North was hosted by Carmel for Carmel’s homecoming game. North was determined to end Carmel’s undefeated streak. The Rams came out with such intensity that once they scored first, they never looked back. Senior Frankie Regalbuto had two touchdown passes to senior Anthony Termine and junior Matt McMullin. McMullin ran for 99 yards on 9 carries with two rushing TD’s as well. Senior Billy Delay ran for 89 yards on 11 carries with a TD of his own. Regalbuto also ran for a 34-yard TD. It was a complete blowout to come from last week’s loss. The real story was the Rams’ defense. They didn’t give up a single point as they shutout Carmel 41-0. For the final TD of the game, junior Liam Donegan returned a 22-yard interception in the fourth.  It was an all around great game for the Rams as they go into next week with some charisma. Now that the North and South teams are both 3-1, they are both candidates for one of the four playoff spots in Section 1 Class AA. The rivalry between Clarkstown North and Clarkstown South will continue next week on Friday, October 5th. The bleachers will be packed so come early and get to your seats quickly! Come and support your Rams!
